I’ve mentioned TechInsights in previous articles on the Forum. They provide a literally ‘unique’ service in providing a view of the insides of chips revealing much about the dimensions, materials and structure of the various components. Memory chips are no exception and their latest reports are of particular interest to the ReRAM community as

It’s that time of year again! However, this year a little differently…. Why? Well on revisiting last year’s edition of this post, I was struck how the only successful ‘predictions’ were of the negative variety (suggestion that something that wouldn’t happen) whereas most of those that were ‘positive’ (suggested something that would happen) were wide of the mark.
Samsung were well ahead of their competitors in the mass memory market when they announced the volume manufacturing of 3D-NAND (VNAND) chips. Some excellent descriptions of this technology notably by Andy Walker of Schilitron Inc have appeared here on the Forum and elsewhere. Initially, there was a certain amount of skepticism….
While talking to David Eggleston, Principal, Intuitive Cognition Consulting* about the future of ReRAM/CBRAM, he pointed me to an interesting session at the latest Flash Memory Summit on ‘Flash below 20nm’. In the session, Applied Materials, SK hynix, Micron and SanDisk
Panasonic have announced the “world’s first mass production of ReRAM mounted microcomputers” . This appears to be the microcontroller with embedded ReRAM that was discussed in an April Blog along with its video in March.
Adesto Technologies held a get acquainted workshop recently in San Jose and David Viera, MarCom Director, was kind enough to forward me the presentation focused on CBRAM. The program started with a company introduction followed by
