Freescale Presents Leading-Edge Semiconductor Research at IEDM 2006
Papers Highlight Breakthroughs in MRAM, Process Technology
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Freescale Semiconductor is presenting six technology papers at this year’s IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) to be held in San Francisco, Calif., Dec. 10-13. These papers are among approximately 465 technology papers Freescale has presented during 2006 at events including IEDM, Convergence Automotive conference and NSTI Nanotechnology conference.
“Status and Outlook of MRAM Memory Technology”
Each year, IEDM has an Emerging Technologies session during which breakthroughs in important new technologies are presented. This year’s session on Tuesday, Dec. 12 will feature an invited talk from Freescale’s leading experts on MRAM led by Saied Tehrani, director of SmartMOS and MRAM technology for Freescale. The talk, “Status and Outlook of MRAM Memory Technology,” will build on Freescale’s July 2006 announcement of the first commercially-available MRAM part, the MR2A16A 4-Mbit toggle MRAM.
Presenters from Freescale also will discuss process technology pertaining to high-k and multi-gate transistors. These transistors are designed to accelerate a new breed of dramatically smaller, higher performing semiconductors that require less power.
Two of the papers are being presented in partnership with the Crolles2 Alliance, highlighting results of the joint leadership of its members (Freescale, NXP and STMicroelectronics) in advanced semiconductor research at the 65-nm and 45-nm CMOS nodes.
IEDM is held each December, alternating between San Francisco and Washington, D.C. For 52 years it has been the world’s premier forum for the presentation of advances in microelectronic, nanoelectronic and now bioelectronic devices. IEDM presents more leading work in more areas of the field than any other technical conference, encompassing silicon and non-silicon device technology, optoelectronics, MEMS, displays and nanotechnology for electronics applications.
The following is a list of papers being presented at IEDM 2006 involving Freescale:
