IEDM have issued a taster/teaser of their 2015 technical program along with session details. NVM enthusiasts will be interested in Session 10 on R(e)RAM and Session 3 which features PCRAM and Flash. Session 3….

To drive architecture and system-level studies into 3D ReRAM and other emerging memory technologies, a group of researchers at Oak Ridge National Lab, Penn State and UCSB have developed a modeling tool named DESTINY. DESTINY is an acronym for 3D dEsign-Space exploraTIon tool for SRAM, eDRAM and Non-volatile memorY.
It’s IEDM week and from my position on the other side of the Pond (i.e. I’m not at the conference), it’s clear that interest in ReRAM and CBRAM continues. However, this year there are more papers focussing on the access device suitable for use in next generation memory. This actually makes a lot of sense because…..
Memory Cell with Threshold Switch (US8642985) by Frederick T. Chen. A high-density resistive memory traditionally coupled a transistor and a switching resistance in the same cell. While the functionality was easy to predict with this configuration, the density is often compromised by the need to make the transistor large enough
Following on from the last post on ReRAM related news from the SPIE Advanced Lithography Conference in February, some words on a panel session on ‘Alternative Forms of Scaling’ covering the various 3D approaches to scaling.
The SPIE Litho conference every February is one of the things I really miss being located this side of the Pond. I used to attend regularly starting when it was held at the San Jose Fairmont. I was involved in running one of the sub conferences and participated in various sessions and panels. The great …
First a caveat: I know something (from a previous life) about neuromorphic computing but what I do know is not much and no doubt outdated at least in part! The concept as I understand it is to mimic in silicon the methods of computation as performed in biological entities.
Intermolecular’s (IMI) Q1 Earnings Results and Conference Call threw some more light on their activities in the ReRAM and memory fields along with another puzzle. Dave Lazovsky, IMI CEO, announced they have signed a multi-year Collaborative Development Program (CDP) and IP licensing agreement with
