Ferroelectric Memory GmbH (FMC) has developed semiconductor memory based on hafnium oxide, otherwise known as an insulator in semiconductor manufacturing. The company was formed in 2016 and is working with undisclosed partner semiconductor companies on embedded and stand-alone memory implementations. The company offers both FeFET and FeCAP capacitor technology.
"FMC has developed a unique and patented technology for transforming amorphous hafnium-dioxide into crystalline ferroelectric hafnium-dioxide, which can offer superior performance compared with state-of-the-art and emerging memory solutions," said Artusi in a statement issued by FMC.
"This technology will bring significant benefits to applications such as AI and 5G, Big Data, which require high-performance and low power consumption as well compatibility with leading-edge CMOS logic processes," Artusi added.
