"The rapid move towards next-generation NVM memories in 3D Crosspoint architectures has created a critical need for current steering devices or selectors," said
Studying new materials is expensive, slow and constraining for the speed and quality of materials innovation required, sometimes taking up to six months for their introduction into memory fabs. The complexity, toxicity and diversity of the materials to choose from has proven to be extremely challenging for memory companies, thereby creating a critical need in the industry for better ways to screen and discover selector materials stacks. Chalcogenides have proven extremely challenging to deposit and characterize, yet the advantages they bring are so critical and useful that memory device makers are searching for how to realize these new materials. Co-optimization of chalcogenides for specific compositions and electrical operation enables customers to meet performance, density and reliability specifications for these devices. Use of high-throughput experimentation for such advanced co-optimization can provide memory manufacturers with substantial competitive advantages as they bring next generation memory devices to market. Intermolecular has screened thousands of chalcogenide compositions over a four-year period and demonstrated promising selector behavior in several systems with different mechanisms.
Upcoming Presentation at Flash
Intermolecular has a strong presence at next week's FMS 2017, with participation in two technical panels highlighting the challenges and solutions in developing selector technology for 3D crosspoint memory:
Intermolecular is also chairing a "Chat with the Experts" table over beer and pizza on Resistive Random Access Memories (RRAM). Topical co-chairs for the RRAM table are:
