Israel’s Weebit Nano, which moved into the BHT in September, has been working with Leti since 2016. Their research focuses on tomorrow’s resistive memory (ReRAM), which is faster and more energy-efficient than flash memory. ReRAM also offers the advantage of being made from silicon oxide, a material very commonly used in microelectronics and easy to integrate into CMOS processes.
Several key prerequisites to industrial scale-up have been completed. Most recently a set pf 4,000 40 nm memory points was produced. Based on these encouraging results, Weebit Nano set up a French subsidiary at the end of 2017. ReRAM will be used in a number of applications, including high-density storage for servers and microcontrollers for IoT devices.
