Adesto shows steps to resistive memories

By Nick Flaherty

IoT chip designers Adesto Technologies is planning to show new research showing the potential for Resistive RAM (RRAM) technology in high-reliability applications such as automotive. 

Adesto Fellow Dr. John Jameson, who led the research team, will share the results at the ESSCIRC-ESSDERC 48th European Solid-State Device Research Conference, being held in Germany on September 4th, 2018.

RRAM has great potential to become a widely used, low-cost and simple embedded non-volatile memory (NVM), as it uses simple cell structures and materials which can be integrated into existing manufacturing flows with as little as one additional mask. However, many RRAM technologies to-date have faced integration and reliability challenges. 

The research at Adesto on the technology, which it calls CBRAM, shows that the devices consume less power, requires fewer processing steps, and operates at lower voltages as compared to conventional embedded flash technologies.

“We’re delighted to share our latest RRAM research with the prestigious technical community at ESSCIRC-ESSDERC,” said Dr. Venkatesh Gopinath, VP of CBRAM and RRAM Technology and Production Development at Adesto. “For the first time, RRAM is being demonstrated as an ideal low-cost, one-mask embedded NVM for high-reliability applications. Adesto was the first company to bring commercial RRAM devices to market, and now our CBRAM technology is production-proven for IoT and other ultra-low power applications. Our continued innovation and advancements will bring the benefits of CBRAM to an even broader range of applications.”
