Leti, a leading global research
center committed to creating and commercializing innovation in micro- and nanotechnologies,
is hosting a workshop on innovative memory technologies at MINATEC on Wednesday,
The workshop will cover recent advances in semiconductor memory technologies.
Topics will range from short-term to long-term memory solutions, including:
- floating-gate and charge-trap non-volatile memories for embedded or stand-alone
- resistive memory technologies such as phase-change memories and oxide–based
- three-dimensional integration approaches to increase memory density
- innovative ideas covering thin-film memories, molecular memories and new
The workshop also will feature presentations by leaders in the global memory
STMicroelectronics, Numonyx, IBM and SAMSUNG.
The workshop is part of the 11th Leti Annual Review June 22-24. For more information
about the annual review and the memory workshop, including registration options,
CEA-LETI, the Laboratory for Electronics & Information Technology is operated
by Direction de la Recherche Technologique at CEA, the French Atomic Energy
Commission. It mainly aims at helping companies to increase their competitiveness
through technological innovation and transfer of its technical know-how to industry.
Major player in the MINATEC Micro-Nano technologies innovation center, CEA-LETI
benefits from 8000 m2 state-of-the-art clean rooms, with equipment worth some
160 million euros. It is currently employing some 1600 people among whom 1100
CEA employees and co-workers of various status including 100 people from industrial
partners, working in the CEA-LETI premises within the framework of bilateral
collaborations. Overall, research contracts with industry are worth 75% of CEA-LETI
annual income. It has a very important patents portfolio, and filed last year
more than 200 patents and 700 publications. The laboratory is structured into
six departments, with a specific department operating 24-7 the technological
facilities of the silicon technology platform, and five program-oriented programs
covering the field of microelectronics, Microsystems, optronics, sytem design
and telco, and technologies for bio and health.
