Weebit Nano tapes out ReRAM demo chip to SkyWater foundry


First tape-out of Weebit ReRAM expertise in a manufacturing fab

HOD HASHARON, Israel – June 29, 2022 Weebit Nano Restricted (ASX:WBT; Weebit or the Firm),a number one developer of next-generation reminiscence applied sciences for the worldwide semiconductor trade, is happy to announce it has taped-out (launched to manufacturing) demonstration chips integrating its embedded Resistive Random-Entry Reminiscence (ReRAM) module to SkyWater Know-how’s foundry.

That is the primary tape-out of Weebit’s ReRAM expertise to a manufacturing fab and is a serious milestone towards commercialization. The expertise will likely be out there on SkyWater’s 130nm CMOS course of, which is right for purposes similar to analog, energy administration, automotive, IoT and medical. SkyWater prospects can now use the extremely built-in demo chip as the ultimate platform for testing and prototyping forward of quantity manufacturing.

Coby Hanoch, CEO of Weebit Nano, stated: “We’ve developed an in depth and environment friendly partnership with SkyWater, enabling us to fulfill our milestones, and bringing us ever nearer to quantity manufacturing. This profitable tape-out concludes the expertise switch to SkyWater’s US manufacturing fab, and as soon as the chips are again from the fab, we are going to proceed with expertise qualification. We’re in discussions with early-adopter prospects trying to leverage our sooner, extra environment friendly reminiscence expertise to extend their competitiveness out there.”

Thomas Sonderman, SkyWater president and CEO, stated: “We plan to supply Weebit ReRAM as a part of our rising portfolio of silicon-proven design IP. Weebit ReRAM is a wealthy constructing block our prospects can leverage to create revolutionary, extremely differentiated SoC designs. Given the expertise’s ultra-low energy consumption and integration flexibility, we’re already seeing enthusiastic curiosity from prospects in areas similar to IoT, energy administration and mixed-signal designs.”

Weebit’s embedded ReRAM module features a 256Kb ReRAM array, management logic, decoders, IOs (Enter/Output communication components) and error correcting code (ECC). It’s designed with distinctive patent-pending analog and digital good circuitry operating good algorithms, thereby considerably enhancing the reminiscence array’s technical parameters. It additionally helps an prolonged temperature vary, 10 years’ knowledge retention at excessive temperatures, quick entry time, extraordinarily low standby energy, and is radiation-hardened (rad-hard) by nature.

The demo chip includes a full sub-system for embedded purposes, together with the Weebit ReRAM module, a RISC-V microcontroller (MCU), system interfaces, recollections and peripherals.
