Let’s face it: We’re addicted to SRAM. It’s big, it’s power-hungry, but it’s fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don’t have anything better in the mainstream yet.

We’ve looked at attempts to improve conventional SRAM. We’ve loo...

Zeno’s 1-transistor Bi-SRAM uses a single transistor and is ~5x smaller than a conventional SRAM -- which use 6-transistor bitcells (6T-SRAM) -- at the same technology node.​

One way to look at a System-on-Chip (SoC) is the proportions of silicon area that are devoted t...

Shrinking SRAM expands on-chip memory with standard CMOS, FinFET

San Jose, Calif.-based startup Zeno Semiconductor is testing modifications and a smaller process node for the single-transistor 28nm SRAM chip it introduced in 2016, which could boost space for on-chip CPU...

Zeno Claims Double the Drive, No Extra Leakage

You may remember that, early this year, we took a look at a 1-transistor (1T) SRAM bit cell. (Yes, new memory stuff seems all the rage lately – and we’re probably not done yet.) Well, there’s another story evolving out of t...

LAKE WALES, Fla. — Researchers at Zvi OrBach's startup Zeno Semiconductor (Sunnyvale, Calif.) are claiming a power-boosting breakthrough for use at any semiconductor node to increase drive by 2X and power-delay by 4X, compared with the a...

February 19, 2016

At the IEEE’s International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM) in December a start-up named Zeno Semiconductors introduced a 1-transistor (1T) SRAM.  Given that today’s SRAMs generally use between six and eight transistors per bit, this alternative promises to squeeze the...

Significant Change to SRAM Economics?

There are few semiconductor circuits as constant as the SRAM cell. Until now.

SRAM is important because it’s our fastest-performance memory tier – and it can take up a goodly chunk of your SoC area. But it’s an expensive beast (or el...
