Researchers from the French Nanoscience and Cryogenics Institute (INAC) and Spintec have developed a new logic circuit that combines CMOS and MRAM technology. This patented invention uses MRAM from Crocus Technology and marks Europe’s first working demonstrator of its kind. MRAM offers two key benefits: it’s non-volatile and it doesn’t need a power supply when it’s not active.
The CMOS part of the new logic circuit performs calculations while the MRAM part detects and corrects errors. This division of tasks makes the circuit radiation-resistant, opening the door to applications in the aerospace and defense industries. The research team now plans to further develop the technology in association with a corporate partner.
