CEA-Leti invites decision makers on the lookout for innovative and promising chip-based R&D, as well as editors, analysts and entrepreneurs to peruse the institute's reader-friendly "2021 Highlights" report
Primo1D miniaturizes RFID devices to integrate them into a textile thread, a true alternative to the detachable and cumbersome RFID tag.
CEA, in collaboration with CNRS Néel, a leading team in SI-based quantum computing, presented two papers on that topic at IEDM 2021, including an invited paper that identifies the material and integration challenges facing large-scale Si quantum computing. The second paper presents a novel Si quantum device integration that reduces by half the effective gate pitch and provides full controllability in 1D FDSOI quantum dot (QD) arrays.
CEA-Leti has reported the world’s-first demonstration of 16-kbit ferroelectric random-access memory (FeRAM) arrays at the 130nm node that advances this energy-saving technology closer to commercialization. The breakthrough includes back-end-of-line (BEOL) integration of TiN/HfO2:Si/TiN ferroelectric capacitors as small as 0.16 µm², and solder reflow compatibility for the first time for this type of memory.
Rapid advances in resistive oxide memory (OxRAM) could soon put the technology on manufacturers' production lines.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
