In 2007, the founders of Adesto Technologies set out to build a new company focused on developing innovative, low-power memory solutions based on a promising type of Resistive RAM technology called Conductive Bridging RAM (CBRAM). CBRAM is different from other emerging memories in that it can be customized to serve a wide range of applications. As a standalone memory, commercial CBRAM products have inherent advantages over competitive non-volatile memories. Its advantages include ultra low-energy consumption and ultra-fast write capabilities, making it a natural fit for Internet of Things, Wearables, and other energy-conscious applications. In addition, Adesto has licensed its technology as an embedded memory to several large SOC (System on Chip) Semiconductor companies and thus enabled them to develop a future roadmap without limitations.
Unlike other memory technologies, CBRAM is completely CMOS compatible and through optimizations of the memory cell, its architecture, and the manufacturing process it can be shown to be extremely versatile in the way it operates. Adesto released its first CBRAM-based memory devices in 2012 and now offers commerical CBRAM-serial memory product selections, targeting the $5B non-volatile EEPROM and NOR Flash markets.
Specialties: Non-volatile memory, Serial Flash, CBRAM, DataFlash.
