TrendForce: DRAMeXchange Updates on Mobile Memory
December 21, 2014
DRAMeXchange reported mobile memory will account for 36 percent of overall DRAM production this year and is very likely to surpass 40 percent of production in 2015, according to a release from TrendForce. "Because of high demand for mobile memory, DRAM manufacturers have somewhat reduced standard memory production, keeping module prices high," said Ken Kuo, Assistant Vice President at DRAMeXchange. "All DRAM manufacturers are staying profitable. The increasingly oligopolistic nature of the market and changes in market demand will stable the development of the industry in 2015."

Researchers build room-temperature memory that doesn't need a current to retain data
December 19, 2014
All modern computer memory works on basically the same principle - an electrical current is used to change the charge state of a cell. That charge state is then "read" by the memory controller. Whether we're talking about NAND flash or RAM, this basic property is identical between them. Now, researchers at Cornell have announced and demonstrated a device based on bismuth ferrite that can store data and retrieve data without needing an electrical current to do so. The implications of such a room-temperature breakthrough could be profound - a long time from now. Magnetoelectric memory is attractive precisely because it removes the electrical currents that currently (pun intended) account for a substantial fraction of power consumption in a system. If the DRAM or cache subsystems could draw less electrical power, total device battery life would increase. The impact of shifting to alternative ferroelectric or magnetoelectric memory systems could be substantial - more than equal to the traditional gains of adopting new process nodes.

Lithography continues to drive Moore's law
December 19, 2014
SPIE has issued the following news release: The semiconductor industry takes its impulse from Moore's law, an observation made by Gordon Moore in 1965 that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. This trend results in smaller, more powerful, and less expensive chips, allowing consumer electronics companies to deliver more functionality to their customers while decreasing product cost. To date, Moore's law has been driven by shrink (making devices ever smaller), and for this to continue, device scaling needs to continue to provide both lower cost and improved performance as we approach the 10nm node (i.e., next-generation technology) and beyond. This requires a comprehensive approach to the entire lithography process, extending the use of immersion lithography (the current state-of-the-art standard wherein a droplet of water is used as the last lens element to enable a larger lens aperture) as well as moving to the next wavelength: extreme UV (EUV) lithography.
