SAN DIEGO, Calif., 8 August 2006. JMAR Technologies Inc. has received a $3.1 million award by Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR). This is the latest increment to be added to JMAR's current contract, valued at $17.5 million, to continue development of sub-100nm feature x-ray masks and next-generation nanolithography.
Under this contract, JMAR will use its patented x-ray stepper and point source technologies to develop x-ray masks for fabrication of high-speed C-RAM with 50-35 nanometer features, enabling 16 megabyte and higher densities for high-priority military and space applications.
Three JMAR X-Ray Lithography (XRL) stepper systems will be used in the development of these and other next-generation memory devices.
The C-RAM program is a joint Navy/Air Force development effort for radiation-hardened, low power, silicon memory devices.
