Junctionless SONOS Memory: Seamless Storage

IME researchers have developed a novel SONOS memory for next generation ultra-high density memory applications. Compared to conventional planar SONOS memory cell, the absence of a junction in the cell is much more amenable to device miniaturisation as the fabrication complexity and cost are significantly reduced. The junctionless SONOS memory exhibited high on/off ratio, full memory functionality with high read/write speed and excellent reliability performance.
