Crossbar RRAM Technology to be Featured at Flash Memory Summit 2014

Crossbar, Inc., a start-up company pioneering a new category of very high capacity and high-performance non-volatile memory, will feature its RRAM technology across three panel presentations during next week’s Flash Memory Summit 2014 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Presentations will cover new developments in RRAM technology as well as the applicability of RRAM to new markets including the Internet of Things. In addition, Crossbar will discuss developments in 3D NAND and how RRAM breaks through the barriers in scaling 3D Flash to high densities in high volume.

Presentation 1: Overcoming Challenges in 3D Architecture Memory Production
Session description: As NAND Flash process geometries continue to shrink towards the 10nm range, the third dimension provides a crucial degree-of-freedom to increase the density/capacity per chip and/or device. This session provides unique insights for preparing your organization for the future of NVM storage in the third dimension.

  • Who: Dr. Sundar Narayanan, Vice President of Technology
  • What: Dr. Narayanan will discuss the challenges with 3D NAND and how RRAM is a viable alternative 3D flash that uses a simple process, existing toolset and stacking architecture that builds one layer at a time. With RRAM, Logic fabs can convert to memory fabs with minimal overhead and implement 3D Flash using RRAM.
  • When: Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 9:45 – 10:50 a.m. PST

Presentation 2: Breakthrough 3D RRAM Technology
Session description: RRAM development keeps progressing, with companies using a variety of approaches to pursue potential applications in high capacity storage, mid-range nonvolatile caches and low cost embedded solutions. This session offer views on the current state of RRAM technology, target applications, and the road to commercialization.

  • Who: Hagop Nazarian, Vice President of Engineering and Co-Founder
  • What: Mr. Nazarian will discuss Crossbar’s breakthrough and patented 1TnR Selectivity technology that enables super-dense, low latency, low power data storage systems. This technology represents a critical milestone toward commercializing terabyte scale memory arrays on a postage stamp size chip.
  • When: Wednesday, August 6, 2014 from 3:10 – 4:25 p.m. PST

Presentation 3: Flash and the Internet of Things
Session description: The Internet of Things (IoT) has been described as the largest opportunity of the next decade. But what is IoT? What role does Flash memory play in enabling it? The panelists in this session will discuss why the merger of sensors, microcontrollers and Flash memory into a mesh of things will improve life for all humankind.

  • Who: Cliff Zitlaw, Product Architect
  • What: Mr. Zitlaw will discuss how RRAM technology will deliver radical innovations in the connected device world, through very high capacity, very fast non-volatile storage that can be easily integrated with logic onto a single chip, can operate for years without a battery change and can withstand extreme temperatures.
  • When: Thursday, August 7, 2014 from 4:10 – 5:30 p.m. PST

Expert at the Table Session (Beer/Pizza Roundtable)
Session description: Crossbar will chair an open roundtable session where participants can discuss developments in RRAM technology. These sessions are open to all conference attendees.

  • Who: Dr. Sundar Narayanan, Vice President of Technology
  • When: Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. PST

About Crossbar, Inc.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
