Last fall, Weebit and SkyWater announced that SkyWater will take Weebit’s ReRAM Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technology to volume production.
A new interview on the SkyWater Technology website talks to both Ross Miller, VP Strategic Marketing & Business Unit at SkyWater, and Eran Briman, Weebit Nano’s VP of Marketing and Business Development. The discussion provides more information on the partnership and what’s next.
During the interview, Ross and Eran discuss why Weebit ReRAM is a great fit for various application areas, like aerospace & defense, automotive, industrial, and neuromorphic computing.
SkyWater says it will initially roll out Weebit ReRAM as embedded NVM in their 130nm CMOS process, since this is a sweet spot for mixed-signal designs such as analog, power management and sensors. In addition, Ross says: “Because ReRAM has such low power consumption and integration flexibility, we see a lot of interest in the near-term in IoT and general mixed-signal / ASIC designs.”
Ross also describes some of the exciting potential future applications for Weebit ReRAM such as scaling it to other SkyWater platforms like its 90nm and carbon nanotube CMOS technologies. He also says, “Weebit ReRAM is a rich building block for hybrid architectures that can be flexibly integrated in new and interesting ways, making it a really exciting option for innovators as they look to bring new ideas from concept to reality.”
Finally, Ross and Eran talk about how SkyWater customers can get started with Weebit ReRAM. According to Eran, “The technology transfer process will continue throughout the coming months, and once that is complete, qualification can begin.” Ross adds, “As soon as the initial qualification is complete, SkyWater customers can have the confidence to tape-out their designs with ReRAM.”
