Will describe monolithic 3D chips with single crystal silicon transistors

Dr. Deepak Sekar, the Chief Scientist of Monolithic 3D Inc.

Our company’s technology allows application of monolithic 3D concepts to logic, DRAM and resistive memories, in addition to NAND flash memories

MonolithIC 3D Inc. will present an invited paper at the upcoming IEEE International 3D System Integration Conference (3DIC). This event, the flagship IEEE conference for 3D-ICs, is held annually. In 2012, the conference will be in Osaka, Japan, between 31st January and 2nd February.

Titled “Monolithic 3D-ICs with single crystal silicon layers”, MonolithIC 3D Inc.’s paper is authored by Deepak Sekar and Zvi Or-Bach. It describes techniques to get high-quality single crystal silicon transistors in stacked layers of monolithic 3D chips. This enables low-cost, high-performance memories with lithography steps that are shared among multiple device layers. Logic chips with short wire lengths can be obtained as well, addressing the “interconnect problem” that has been plaguing the industry.

Zvi Or-Bach, the President and CEO of MonolithIC 3D Inc., said, “We are pleased to get an invitation to present at the IEEE 3DIC, as it is one of the leading events in the 3D chip space. The conference’s invitation is a measure of the 3D community’s high level of interest in our technology.”

MonolithIC 3D Inc.’s presentation at the IEEE 3D System Integration Conference will be given by Dr. Deepak Sekar, the Chief Scientist of the company. Noted Dr. Sekar, “The NAND flash industry is actively exploring monolithic 3D approaches with polysilicon transistors. Single crystal silicon would bring a step function improvement to the performance and cost of these 3D flash memories. It would also allow application of monolithic 3D concepts to areas such as logic, DRAM and resistive memories.”

MonolithIC 3D Inc., based in San Jose, has more than 50 issued and pending patents on the technology, design and architecture of monolithic 3D-ICs. The company was selected as a Finalist of the Best of West 2011, which recognizes the most important product and technology developments at Semicon West. MonolithIC 3D Inc.’s business model involves licensing technology to existing semiconductor manufacturers.
