Adesto, HLMC and Crocus Nano Electronics to co-develop new devices based on Adesto's RRAM memory technology

Adesto, Shanghai Huali Microelectronics Corporation (HLMC) and Crocus Nano Electronics (CNE) announced a collaboration to develop new RFID and microcontrollers products based on Adesto's RRAM memory technology (CBRAM).

The three companies say that the combination of RRAM with HLMC's 55nm ultra-low-power front-end process and CNE's 300 mm back-end processing will enable cost-effective embedded and standalone RRAM devices.

Microsemi licenses Crossbar's RRAM IP, to integrate it in its future aerospace and military products

Crossbar logoCrossbar announced that Microsemi, the largest US military and aerospace semiconductor supplier, has signed a licensing agreement which will bring Crossbar's RRAM technology to Microsemi's products.

As part of the agreement, Microsemi and Crossbar will collaborate in the research, development and application of Crossbar’s proprietary ReRAM technology in next generation products from Microsemi.

Weebit Nano and Leti extend their RRAM co-development agreement

Israel-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced that it has extended its agreement with Leti to further develop and optimize Weebit’s ReRAM memory technology. Weebit says that this extension will allow it to accelerate the optimizing of the manufacturing process required to achieve industry standard capabilities with its Silicon Oxide (SiOx) ReRAM memory technology.

Weebit and Leti aim to demonstrate a 40nm 1Mb memory array by mid-2018. Weebit and Leti also plan to initiate work on 28nm nodes later this year. In November 2017 we posted an interview with Weebit's new CEO, which explains the company's technology and business.

Rambus and GigaDevice launch a new company called Reliance Memory to commercialize embedded RRAM

Rambus, in collaboration with GigaDevice, launched a new company called Reliance Memory, to commercialize RRAM technology for embedded devices. Rambus also announced the strategic investment partners in Reliance Memory - THG Ventures, West Summit Capital, Walden International and Zhisland Capital.

Rambus is developing RRAM technologies since 2012, when it acquired Unity Semiconductor, an RRAM developer, for $35 million. In 2017 Rambus licensed its RRAM patents to Western Digital.

SER and CSIRO received a $100,000 AUD grant to develop methods to optimize SER's Memory Ink technology

Strategic Elements announced that it has been awarded $100,000 AUD together with CSIRO to fund trial a development of methods to optimize the levels of organic materials in the company's Memory Ink, for industrial level processes. The project was awarded to SER's 100% owned subsidiary, Australian Advanced Materials (AAM).

SER also announced that it expects to receive $840,000 AUD under the Australian Federal Government Research and Development rebate.

Weebit announced working 40nm SiOx RRAM cell samples

Weebit Nano logoEarlier this year, Weebit Nano announced that it aims to produce 40nm working SiOx RRAM cell samples by the end of 2017, and the company today announced that it achieved that milestone - one month ahead of schedule.

Weebit further reports that measurements performed on the 40nm memory cells on various wafers verified the ability of Weebit Nano SiOx ReRAM cells to maintain its memory behaviour in accordance with previous experiments performed on 300nm cells.
