Advancements in embedded memories continue to enable improvements in system designs spanning from automotive to high-performance computing markets. SRAM continues to be a critical technology enabler across the full spectrum of the semiconductor industry. RRAM has emerged as a promising technology for scaling embedded non-volatile memory into advanced nodes; with applications in consumer electronics, self-driving vehicles, intelligent edge devices and more. This session details recent

The second paper outlines a state-of-the-art RRAM reporting record bit density. The third paper showcases a GAA SRAM design and its supporting assist circuitry. The final paper outlines a standard-cell based SRAM design for small macros: demonstrating high-performance and ultra-low operating voltages.
