Leti announces its 3rd workshop on Innovative Memory technologies
(Nanowerk News) CEA-Leti, a leading global research center committed to creating and commercializing innovation in micro- and nanotechnologies, is hosting its third workshop on innovative memory technologies at MINATEC on Wednesday, June 29, 2011.
The workshop will explore the latest achievements in semiconductor memory technologies. Topics will range from short-term to long-term memory solutions, including:
Floating-gate, charge-trap non-volatile memories for embedded or stand-alone applications
Resistive memory technologies such as phase-change memories and oxide–based memories
Three-dimensional integration approaches to increase memory density
Innovative ideas covering thin-film memories, bio-inspired memories and new architectures
The workshop will also feature presentations by leaders in the global memory industry, including Micron, Hynix, STMicroelectronics and Stanford University.
CEA is a French research and technology organization, with activities in four main areas: energy, information technologies, healthcare technologies and defence and security. Within CEA, the Laboratory for Electronics & Information Technology (CEA-Leti) works with companies in order to increase their competitiveness through technological innovation and transfers. CEA-Leti is focused on micro and nanotechnologies and their applications, from wireless devices and systems, to biology and healthcare or photonics. Nanoelectronics and microsystems (MEMS) are at the core of its activities. As a major player in MINATEC campus, CEA-Leti operates 8,000-m˛ state-of-the-art clean rooms, on 24/7 mode, on 200mm and 300mm wafer standards. With 1,400 employees, CEA-Leti trains more than 150 Ph.D. students and hosts 200 assignees from partner companies. Strongly committed to the creation of value for the industry, CEA-Leti puts a strong emphasis on intellectual property and owns more than 1,500 patent families.
