2Mbit RRAM cell overcomes filament instability, temperature issues
15.07.2015 - 15:35
Imec and Panasonic have fabricated a 2Mbit resistive RAM (RRAM) cell based on TaOx technology on a 40nm process. The approach, said to have precise filament positioning and high thermal stability, is believed to pave the way to realising 28nm embedded applications.RRAM is based on current or voltage induced switching of a resistive element mate...
ALD technology develops to support the move to 3D devices
15.07.2015 - 15:32
According to Applied Materials, the move to 3D devices is driving demand for atomic layer deposition (ALD) equipment that can enable new patterning films, new conformal materials and lower thermal budgets.Looking to meet these needs, the company has introduced the Olympia system, which is said to bring the flexibility needed to allow low temper...

Last month, speakers from around the world came to imec's Technology Forum in Brussels to share their views on what was described as our 'collective digital future'.According to Padmasree Warrior, a strategic advisor at Cisco: "We are currently living through what is quite possibly the most exciting time that I have experienced...
Transistor created from 'one molecule and small number of atoms'
14.07.2015 - 10:18
A team of physicists from Germany, the US and Japan says it has used a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) to create a transistor consisting of one molecule and a small number of atoms. The team says the device's action is 'markedly different' from that which might be expected and claims this could be important for future such devices....
