Brewer Science’s new carbon nanotube materials are qualified for NRAM® manufacturing
September 13, 2013 - Brewer Science, a leading 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.
“As a global leader in supplying advanced semiconductor processing materials, 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 CNTRENE® materials for NRAM® manufacturing at the FUJIFILM Advanced Lithography Workshop in Dresden, Germany on September 13, 2013.
