RRAM developer Intrinsic raises $1.85 million

UK-based RRAM developer Intrinsic Semiconductor Technologies (Intrinsic) announced it closed a $1.85 million seed funding round, led by investors UCL Technology Fund and IP Group plc. The company will use the funds to develop prototypes of its RRAM memory devices on 300 mm silicon wafers in collaboration with imec.

Intrinsic was spun-off from the University College London (UCL) in 2017. The UCL Technology Fund is now supporting this next stage in the company's life.

Weebit Nano raises a further $12 million AUD to accelerate its R&D and commercialization

Israel-based RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced it has raised $12 million AUD in its recent placement. The company says that its new funds will enable it to accelerate its commercialisation initiatives, including strengthening its technology, engineering and sales teams and increasing marketing activities in the embedded memory market. A non-underwritten share purchase plan to raise up to $3 million will be offered to eligible shareholders on the same terms as the Placement.

Researchers use graphene to enhance perovskite memristor devices

Researchers from the University of Groningen combined graphene with a perovskite ferroelectric material to design a new memristor device.

In the device, a graphene strip was placed on top of a flake of STO (strontium titanium oxide perovskite). The graphene strip addition enabled the usage of the STO material at higher temperatures than before. This research creates new insights into the adoption of STO materials in memristor devices.

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.
