SUNNYVALE, USA: Unity Semiconductor Corp., a memory technology company developing CMOx, an innovative solution for non-volatile solid state memory to replace NAND, announced that it has entered into a joint development agreement with Micron Technology to develop CMOx.
For the last eight years, Unity has been developing CMOx, an innovative solution for non-volatile solid state memory to replace NAND. CMOx is designed to scale beyond the limitations of the legacy transistor technology currently used in NAND flash memory. The agreement is a springboard for Unity's plans to commercialize CMOx. The joint development program is anticipated to be completed within the next two years.
"Our joint development program with Micron is an important milestone as we look to scale Unity's unique multi-dimensional memory technology, fabricating it in small geometry, multi-layer cross-point arrays," said David Eggleston, CEO of Unity. "Unity's CMOx memory technology will offer significant scaling, density, reliability, and cost benefits."
Scott DeBoer, Micron VP of Process Research & Development, added: "CMOx technology operates based on an entirely different physics mechanism from other memories, and offers promise as an emerging cross-point memory technology. Micron is pleased to add the Unity CMOx technology to our emerging memory development programs."
"We are excited to be working with Micron, jointly developing CMOx in their state-of-the-art facilities with their world-class engineers. Adoption of new memory technologies is essential to the continuing evolution of new and improved computing and mobile devices," said Eggleston.
