Process technologies improvement advances FRAM
Tom Foremski Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM) could emerge as a significant competitor to DRAM, SRAM and flash memory thanks to improvements in process technologies, claims chip consulting firm Semiconductor Insights. Ramtron has produced a 256k FRAM that Semiconductor Insights says offers a significant improvement over earlier devices. “Ramtron has significantly improved their process technology over their earlier 64k generation FRAM device that we have analysed,” said Edward Keyes, Semiconductor Insights’ v-p of operations. “They have reduced the cell size by almost fourfold over the previous generation. This is the type of development the industry needs for FRAM technology to move out of niche applications.”
