Brewer Science, a supplier of specialty materials and integrated solutions for microelectronics device fabrication, announced today that the next generation of carbon nanotube materials, the CNTRENE 1020 material series, is officially qualified for NRAM nanotube random access memory device manufacturing by Nantero Inc.
NRAM memory is a high-density, non-volatile memory technology invented by Nantero to serve as a universal memory device, which can replace flash, DRAM, and others in embedded and stand-alone memory applications. Brewer Science is a licensed supplier of CMOS-grade carbon nanotube solutions utilizing processes developed by Nantero for use in the manufacture of NRAM devices.
The next generation of CNTRENE materials manufactured by Brewer Science provides an increased concentration of CNTs in solution, with lower ion content (<10 ppb) and extended stability for use in standard coater track systems. This new generation of Brewer Science CNT materials allows for reduced process costs and improved on-wafer coating performance, consistent with the company’s focus on integrated solutions.
“We are pleased to announce that our next generation of CNTRENE materials has been qualified with regard to the strict standards of NRAM production,” said Jim Lamb, Business Development Director, Carbon Electronics Center. “We are determined to support the commercial opportunities for CNTRENE materials and are looking forward to successful adoption of CNTs in non-volatile memory applications through our partnership with Nantero,” he added.
Brewer Science will present these advancements in CNTRENEmaterials for NRAM manufacturing at the FUJIFILM Advanced Lithography Workshop in Dresden, Germany on September 13, 2013.
