RRAM-Info: the RRAM experts

RRAM-Info is a news hub and knowledge center for Resistive RAM technologies.

Resistive RAM is a non-volatile computer memory that uses materials that change their resistance - or memristors. RRAM is still in its early stages, but it may enable fast, efficient and small memory chips

Dialog Semi to license its CBRAM memory technology to GlobalFoundries

Dialog Semiconductor announced that it has has entered into an agreement with GlobalFoundries in which Dialog licenses its Conductive Bridging RAM (CBRAM) technology to GF. Dialog's RRAM technology was pioneered by Adesto Technologies which was recently acquired by Dialog Semiconductor in 2020.

GF will first offer Dialog’s CBRAM as an embedded, non-volatile memory (NVM) option on its 22FDX platform, with the plan to extend to other platforms. Dialog’s proprietary and production proven CBRAM technology is a low power NVM solution designed to enable a range of applications from IoT and 5G connectivity to artificial intelligence (AI).

TSMC expects first customer RRAM tapeouts in H2 2020

TSMC is developing RRAM technologies for several years, and the company first hoped to introduce its first embedded RRAM in 2019. This did not happen, but the company says it is now on track for first customer tape-outs in the second half of 2020.

TSMC will offer RRAM on its 40nm and 22nm manufacturing processes.

New halid perovskite shows promise as an RRAN switching material

Researchers from Korea's Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) has designed a halide perovskite material for RRAM memory devices. The perovskite material offers low-operating voltage and high-performance resistive switching memory.

The researcher say they have succeeded in designing an optimal halide perovskite material (CsPb2Br5) that can be applied to a ReRAM device by applying first-principles calculation based on quantum mechanics.

Weebit Nano raises $6.6 million AUD in a two-tranche placement

Israel-based RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced it has raised $6.6 million AUD via a two-tranche placement. The funds will be used to complete its memory module development, transfer the technology to a production fab and continue its work on discrete RRAM memory technology.
