microprocessors, and stand-alone DRAMs. The Z-RAM memory technology has been
licensed by Hynix Semiconductor for use in stand-alone DRAM ICs, and has
been licensed by AMD for creating large on-chip cache memories in future
The award winning Z-RAM memory technology, which harnesses the floating body
effect of silicon on insulator (SOI) semiconductor devices, provides the
following advantages over standard bulk silicon memory technologies:
The world’s simplest memory bitcell – Z-RAM uses a single transistor, and
nothing else Better scalability path to smaller process
geometries – to 32nm and smaller
die sizes which are a direct result of Z-RAM’s smaller bitcell
Up to twice as dense as bulk DRAM
Up to five times as dense as SRAM
Faster technology node introduction and simplified manufacturing flows
because there are no capacitors to build Shorter manufacturing cycles times,
less work in progress and fewer “at-risk” wafers.

The ONFi Working Group is
dedicated to simplifying integration of NAND Flash memory into consumer
electronics (CE) applications and computing platforms. Before the
advancements made by the working group, use of NAND Flash in these end user
applications was hampered by the lack of sufficient standardization. To
support a new NAND Flash component on a platform, host software, firmware
and/or hardware changes were often required. Implementing these changes was
extremely costly due to the new testing cycle required, which led to slower
rates of adoption for new NAND Flash components. ONFi aims to remedy that
problem and speed time-to-market for NAND Flash-based applications. The ONFi
Working Group was formed in May 2006 and currently has 71 member companies.
ONFi’s founding companies include Hynix Semiconductor, Intel Corporation,
Micron Technology Inc., Phison Electronics Corporation, Sony Corporation and
