Weebit announced a collaboration project with the Technion Institue in Israel

Israel-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano has signed an agreement to collaborate with the Technion Institute in Israel. Weebit will work together with a team of researchers to examine the possible use of ReRAM devices in processing-in-memory that could speed up processing, memory transfer rate and memory bandwidth and decrease processing latency – while using less power.

Weebit and the Technion will also perform characterisation and implementation of logic operations using Weebit’s RRAM test chips, demonstrating basic logic operations on a RRAM array

Weeebit Nano to collaboare with the Politecnico di Milano on a Neuromorphic AI project

Israel-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano launched a joint Neuromorphic ReRAM project with
Politecnico di Milano (Polimi). Weebit Nano's team will collaborate with researchers from the Poltecnico to test, characterize and implement its developed algorithms using Weebit’s ReRAM chip. The goal of the project is to demonstrate the capability of ReRAM-based hardware in neuromorphic and artificial intelligence applications.

This is the second Neuromorphic RRAM project that Weebit launches - only recently in November 2018 it announced that it will partner in a similar project with the Non-Volatile Memory Research Group of the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD).

Weebit Nano reports successful endurance results of its ReRAM cells

Weebit Nano reported successful endurance results of its ReRAM cells as a key step towards moving to 300mm wafers at 28nm. Weebit says that its ReRAM cells demonstrated stable voltage levels and endurance, at levels competitive to production non-volatile memories.

Weebit, together with its partner Leti, performed the tests which demonstrated Array-level endurance above 100,000 cycles. The company says that final characterisation will continue over coming weeks on array performance and extended endurance and retention in preparation for the migration to 300mm wafers at 28nm.

Weebit Nano and Silvaco to co-develop ReRAM models and design tools

Israel-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced a new development program partnership with chip-design software developer Silvaco to develop a Technology Computer-Aided Design (TCAD) solution to accurately model the electrical behavior of Weebit Nano’s ReRAM devices.

Weebit says that this new collaboration will accelerate the incorporation of Weebit Nano’s ReRAM modules into advanced semiconductor designs. Silvaco will use the developed model as the basis for creating a TCAD solution for joint customers employing ReRAM technology.

Leti to assist Weebit Nano to move its RRAM to 300 mm wafers and 28 nm technologies

Israel-based RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced that its partnership with Leti continues, and Leti and Weebit extended the partnership to include adapting Weebit's RRAM production process to 300 mm wafers, at 28 nm.

Weebit believes that the move to 300 mm and 28 nm will be quick - and it will be done by the end of Q4 2019. The move to 28 nm will improve Weebit's RRAM cells and enable them to fit even the smallest geometries being used in the market today.

Weebit Nano to partner with the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi on a Neuromorphic RRAM project

Israel-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced that it will partner with the Non-Volatile Memory Research Group of the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD) to work jointly on a Neuromorphic RRAM project.

RRAM devices are very promising candidates for enabling high-density and ultimately scaled synaptic arrays in neuromorphic architectures as they are significantly smaller and more energy efficient than current AI data centers, and mimic the brain’s biological computation at the neuron and synaptic level.

Weebit Nano raised $2.16 million to advance its SiOx RRAM technology

Israel-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano has raised $3 million AUD ($2.16 million USD) via a share placement and the company also plans to raise a further $1 million soon. Weebit's board of directors invested $150,000 as part of this placement.

Weebit recently announced that it has packaged its first memory devices into chips, which can now be shipped to its partners. The first RRAM memory will be delivered to universities to research the use of ReRAM technology in neuromorphic computing, and additional chips are planned to be shipped to commercial partners.

Weebit Nano produced a 1Mb RRAM array at 40 nm

Weebit Nano logoIsrael-based SiOx RRAM developer Weebit Nano announced that it produced a 1Mb array of its silicon-oxide ReRAM at 40nm. The 1Mb initial tests, conducted in CEA/Leti facilities in Grenoble, France, demonstrated the capability of addressing and programming nearly all of the memory cells.

Last month Weebit and Leti extended their co-development agreement. In November 2017 we posted an interview with Weebit's new CEO, which explains the company's technolgoy and business.

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.
