Crossbar announced a strategic partnership with Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) - China's largest semiconductor foundry. The two companies agreed to co-develop and produce RRAM technologies.
Crossbar says that as the company enters the licensing phase, it is honored to collaborate with SMIC - which is a major stepping stone towards its RRAM technology commercialization.
As part of the partnership, SMIC and Crossbar will provide RRAM blocks based on SMIC’s 40nm CMOS manufacturing process. This will enable customers to integrate low latency, very high performance and low power embedded RRAM memory blocks into MCUs and SoCs.
