3D Ferroelectric Memory Devices: Introduction
- The combination of ferroelectric and nanomaterial opens up opportunity to fabricate a nanoscale memory device which comes with ultra-high memory integration. This eases the increasing scaling and economic challenges in the semiconductor industry.
- Ferroelectric material are used for memory applications such as DRAM. 3D ferroelectric can solve the challenges which are imposed by 2D structures, one of which is the poly-crystalline nature of the HfO2 dielectric which impacts the response in external electric fields leading to large variability. This restriction is removed in the third dimension by adopting 3D, allowing a better control of the statistic.
- Ferroelectric memory combines the benefits of DRAM, ROM, and flash memory. One of the key benefits is faster read and write access. Another advantage of ferroelectric memory over other storage technologies is the higher memory retention. Ferroelectric devices use the ferroelectric layer in place of dielectric layer due to which the benefits are realized.
- Ferroelectric Random Access Memory has high potential for scaling than analogs. However, the number of such devices are insignificant in the market and do not meet expectations. According to studies, the memory capacity only amounts to 0.0001 to that of DRAM or flash memory capacity.
Low Power Requirement of Ferroelectric Memory Device
- Ferroelectric memory devices such as FRAM offer various advantages for low power designs in applications such as wireless sensor nodes, smart meters, and other data logging designs.
- It has more write cycle endurance and data retention time, which helps designers of devices such as smart meters to meet the requirements of the product. Also, ferroelectric memory storage has benefits of faster memory recall, which is similar to the advantages associated with flash memory.
- Comparing conventional memories with ferroelectric ROM, conventional memories such as EEPROM and flash memory require additional time for erase and write operations, whereas ferroelectric ROM has fast write advantage which offers protection from voltage drops and power outages. These advantages help ferroelectric devices to be preferred by manufacturers and consumers, which will boost their demand.
