Dr. Betty Prince of Memory Strategies International

Topic:

3-D Memory Chips

As scaled memory ICs become increasingly challenging, the possibility of increasing bit density by moving into 3D becomes an attractive alternative. Both scaled and 3D technologies present difficulties. Three 3D technologies are at the forefront.
(1) The highest volume memory product today is the NAND flash and it has been one of the first to appear in 3D. Both versions of the 3D NAND flash, vertical channel and vertical gate, will be discussed.
(2) Resistance RAMs have been investigated for several years and have appeared in low level production. These ReRAMs offer a highest density 3D memory when stacked in 3D cross-point arrays. The three types of ReRAMs - metal oxide, conductive bridge, and phase change – will be discussed along with the three types of 3D cross-point array configurations – Unipolar, Bipolar and Complementary.
(3) Stacked DRAMs and logic chips connected with silicon vias already exist as a packaging technology and are poised to become a 3D chip technology. This will involve a revolution in chip design and design tools.

Biography: Dr. Betty Prince is CEO of Memory Strategies International. She has worked with Texas Instruments, N.V. Philips, Motorola, R.C.A and Fairchild. She is author of 6 books on semiconductor memories including “Vertical 3D Memory Technologies”, September 2014, (Wiley). She is a Senior Life Member of the IEEE and was an IEEE SSCS Distinguished Lecturer from 2005-2011. She has served on several IEEE conference committees and on the Technical Advisory Board of IEEE Spectrum magazine. She has been active in the JEDEC and IEC memory standards committees and was founder of the JEDEC JC-16 Interface Standards Committee. She has served on the Technical Advisory Boards of several memory companies and was a Director of Mosaid Technologies for 10 years. She holds patents in the memory, processor and interface areas. She has a B.S. and M.S. in physics and math from the U. of New Mexico and the U. of California, an M.B.A. and a Ph.D. from the University of Texas with doctoral dissertation on fractal modeling.

Agenda

6:00 to 6:30pm -- Networking

6:30 to 8:30pm -- Business and Program


The Consultants Network meets monthly. Except when meeting jointly with other groups, the Consultants Network meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Meetings usually begin with informal networking from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m., followed by presentations from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. by experts in technology, marketing, sales, advertising, financial or legal needs of small businesses and special needs of consultants.
