MRAM



Research team MRAM memories, within the Devices group


Q. Stainer, L. Lombard, K. Mackay, R. C. Sousa, I. L. Prejbeanu, B. Dieny This paper describes an original concept of thermally assisted MRAM in which memory and logic functions are combined in the same stack. The memory cell is represented by a magnetic tunnel junction having an exchange biased storage layer and a soft […]

In WP1, studies were conducted to understand the mechanisms responsible for the dielectric breakdown in magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs). A key asset of STT-MRAM is their write endurance which is much better than in all other technologies of non-volatile memories (FLASH, 105 cycles; PCRAM, 109 cycles; ReRAM, 1010 10 cycles). Combined with their speed (switching time 1-5ns), and density […]

Une jonction tunnel magnétique exploite des variations de résistance électrique sous l’effet d’un champ magnétique. Des chercheurs de l’Inac ont montré que l’insertion d’une couche « tampon » entre deux structures cristallines différentes peut augmenter de 75% la magnétorésistance d’une jonction à aimantation perpendiculaire, ce qui offre la perspective d’une réduction significative de la consommation […]

PATHOS

Perpendicular Anisotropy Materials for High-Density Non-volatile Magnetic Memory Cells Description The project aims at building the knowledge to fabricate perpendicular anisotropy magnetic tunnel junctions, and more generally the realization of perpendicular anisotropy layers for use as magnetic tunnel junction electrodes or perpendicular spin polarisers. The perpendicular anisotropy material development, will allow the demonstration of four […]
