The 2nd International Workshop on Resistive RAM. The workshop was the second installment of an annual series organized by Stanford University and the Belgian research institute Imec. Like most RRAM workshops, this year’s event featured talks focusing on the physics of RRAM devices and their underlying switching mechanism(s).… Read More
A Veritable who’s who of ReRAM researchers will be present at the 2nd International Workshop on Resistive RAM at Stanford in the beginning of October. Sponsored by IMEC and Stanford’s NMRTI (Non-Volatile Technology Research Initiative), the program features two days of talks, panel sessions and no doubt lots of… Read More
The IEEE has an Orange Country Chapter of the Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society who are organizing an all-day workshop, 3D Integrated Circuits: Technologies Enabling the Revolution. This looks to be an informative day with real-world examples in both design and test being presented by over a dozen … Read More
There have been some significant foundry announcements recently that if collated will give you a glimpse into the future of the semiconductor industry. So let me do that for you here.
First the candid EETimes article about TI dumping Samsung as a foundry:
Taiwan’s UMC will take the ”lead role’’ in making the OMAP 5 device on… Read More
My vote for most compelling technology at #47DAC is 3D technology. No, I don’t mean Hollywood-style 3D, I’m talking about vertical stacked-die system on chip design. This design approach basically means putting different parts of the system on different silicon substrates, so you can use the right technology for each part, and… Read More
