  • Target devices: DRAM, eDRAM, FPGA, Flash, FBC, SRAM,…
  • Target markets: stand-alone memory, embedded memory, consumer logic.


Patent Portfolio Proposed

  • Portfolio comprising 34 patent families corresponding to 188 current patent applications filed between 2009 - 2014, with majority of filings in 2010-2011;
  • 157 granted (83,5 %) -->  strong advantage !
  • 31 published and pending (16,5 %)


Geographical coverage :

USA / France / South Korea / China / Germany / Taiwan / Great Britain / Singapore / Japan.


Main Value Proposition

  • Lower Cost of Ownership;
  • Efficient Design Architecture: denser block organization / smaller circuit blocks / integration of new circuits for yield enhancement;
  • Lower Power Consumption: Reduction of static and dynamic power consumption. 


Memory benefits on peripheral circuits:

  • Area reduction: Less sensitivity to variability & Innovative and denser design techniques
  • Performance increase: Higher efficiency / Circuit simplification (less stages to propagate through, less noise generation) / Lower Impedance
  • Power reduction: Power reduced by back gate control and smaller transistor count  this is a very powerful tool! / Size reduction of periphery circuits and in particular of the refresh circuits smaller devices
