- In modern day life, more and more information is being stored on computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones and more. Today this information is usually stored on Flash memory.
- This ~$40 billion market simply cannot support the vast amounts of information that we need to store every day.
- Flash technology has approached to its scaling limits making a significant capacity increased very challenging. The 3D-NAND solution for increased capacity is demonstrating manufacturing difficulties and does not provide any speed, energy efficiency and reliability improvement.
- As we continue to store more and more information, a viable replacement for Flash memory is quickly becoming a necessity.
Resistive Random-Access-Memory (ReRAM) is by far the most promising technology to replace Flash. Prof. Tour, one of the leading scientists of our decade and a member of the Weebit Advisory Board, together with his team created a ReRAM memory out of Silicon Oxide (SiOx – also known as plain sand!) and is already the cheapest and most common material used in the semiconductor industry. They have demonstrated a working ReRAM SiOx device that outperforms Flash in every parameter.
Becoming the Next-Gen Emerging Memory Provider with a Faster, Energy Efficient, Durable & Cost Effective ReRAM Technology
Weebit developed an industry-applicable fabrication approach to new resistive random access memory platform employing a nanoporous SiOx material. This exhibits reversible memory states, which outperform the switching ability of any other unipolar memory. It is the first implementation of a nanoporous material to memory devices with industry-demanding performance metrics.
Unlike the vast majority of emerging memory development technologies, which use new and exotic materials unfamiliar to the semiconductors industry, Weebit’s solution is based on Silicon Oxide, a material which has been introduced to this industry since the 60th. This fab friendly material which the semiconductor industry has been extensively using, is very familiar and therefor much easy to manufacture. Weebit’s use of existing “fab friendly” materials is the ‘Game Changer’, facilitating expedited highly cost-effective development, based on cutting-edge technology in a still rapidly evolving field.
Weebit’s SiOx memory solution is much easier to control, with significantly less tooling and manufacturing issues expected. This enables us to avoid potentially prohibitive capital outlays for retooling and other fabrication issues that arise when using new and unfamiliar materials, rendering Weebit’s ReRAM an extremely cost effective solution.
