Companies join to build high-density memory

Advanced Technology Materials Inc. of Danbury, Conn., is joining hands with Texas Instruments of Dallas to develop high-density non-volatile memory - solid-state memory that retains its data when its supply of power shuts off. Memory scientists from the two companies are concentrating their efforts on process technology to fabricate ferroelectric memories. To do so, they are using integration work from their recently completed DRAM Consortium with IBM, Micron Technologies, and Varian. Advanced T

Advanced Technology Materials Inc. of Danbury, Conn., is joining hands with Texas Instruments of Dallas to develop high-density non-volatile memory - solid-state memory that retains its data when its supply of power shuts off. Memory scientists from the two companies are concentrating their efforts on process technology to fabricate ferroelectric memories. To do so, they are using integration work from their recently completed DRAM Consortium with IBM, Micron Technologies, and Varian. Advanced Technology officials say they want to use ferroelectric memory to improve the performance of their smart card integrated circuits by reducing power and accelerating speed. - J.K.
