Weebit Nano (WBT) has achieved a “major milestone” with its resistive random-access memory (ReRAM) technology.

Weebit has confirmed its demo chips have integrated successfully with its embedded ReRam module and it has completed a functional testing phase. This is the first time its memory technology has operated live in a fully functional chip.

According to the company, this is a key step towards delivering commercial production.

Potential customers can now use the demo chips to test Weebit’s ReRam technology ahead of commercial orders and volume production.

“Our team tested the complete demo chip including the full memory array, the advanced features of our memory module, and the entire system, and confirmed that it functions as expected,” CEO Coby Hanoch said.

“This is the first time we can see Weebit’s innovative memory technology operating live in a fully functional chip. We are now moving into a new phase of our roadmap during which customers can confidently begin designing Weebit ReRAM into their System-on-Chips. The characterisation process is now underway and will be immediately followed by full qualification.”

The ReRAM technology is based on fab-friendly silicon oxide and allows semiconductor memory elements to be cheaper, faster, more reliable and more energy-efficient than the existing flash technology, which is the traditional way information is stored on computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

Chips based on a similar design are currently being prepared for the fabrication in SkyWater technology’s US production fab.

The companies are currently progressing the transfer of the ReRAM tech to SkyWater’s US production fabrication plant with the first prototype tapeout on track for completion by mid-year.

Once the module is qualified at SkyWater, volume production can commence.

WBT shares are up 9.25 per cent, trading at $3.19 at 10:54 am AEST.
