Adesto Technologies announced that DB HiTek (formerly known as Dongbu HiTek) has licensed its RRAM (CBRAM) memory technology. DB HiTek will use Adesto's RRAM as its embedded non-volatile memory for IoT and other ultra-low power customer designs.
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.
Adesto Technologies announced that Teledyne HiRel Electronics will use Adesto's resistive RAM (CBRAM) memory technology for use in its high-performance, high-reliability semiconductor solutions. Teledyne already offers Adesto's CBRAM chips in 32KB, 64KB, 238KB and 512 KB densities. The company says that these chips offer 100K write cycle endurance and data retention of greater than 40 years at 125Â°C.
Adesto Technologies announced a new family of ultra-low power serial EEPROM memory based on its CBRAM RRAM technology aimed towards IoT devices. The Mavriq DS (which stands for Digital Security) offers low-power operation, excellent endurance and special security features.
Adesto says that its new chips performs read and write operations with 4x less power than competitive solutions, and, in ultra-deep power down mode, uses as much as 50x less power. DS devices can automatically enter the ultra-deep power down mode following write operations, reducing controller operations and overall system energy. The mavriq DS supports over 100,000 write cycles across the full temperature and voltage range.
During the company's recent conference call, Adesto Technologies's CEO said that the company continues to see a large number of customers sampling Adesto's Mavriq RRAM product. Adesto is confident that it will receive initial orders in 2016, with significant revenues from this product family in 2017.
Adesto Technologies announced that it will start producing 45nm CBRAM chips at TPSCo (TowerJazz Panasonic Semiconductor Company) Japan's 300mm Hokuriku fab. Adesto says that producing at 45nm will enable them to expand their offering and develop new chips that consume even less power than today's CBRAM chips.
