    Weebit Nano and Silvaco Form Development Program Partnership to Create ReRAM Models and Design Tools

    January 9, 2019

    Weebit and SilvacoWeebit Nano (ASX: WBT), the Israel-based semiconductor company seeking to develop andcommercialise the next generation of memory technology, and Silvaco, a leading global provider of software, IP andservices for designing chips and electronic systems for semiconductor companies, today announced their DevelopmentProgram Partnership to model the electrical behavior of SiOx ReRAM devices. This collaboration will accelerate theincorporation of Weebit Nano’s ReRAM modules into advanced semiconductor designs.

    ReRAM (Resistive RAM) is an emerging technology which is non-volatile, extremely fast, cost effective and can enduresignificantly higher number of Program/Erase cycles compared to Flash memory technology.

    Weebit Nano and Silvaco will work together to develop a Technology Computer-Aided Design (TCAD) solution toaccurately model the electrical behavior of Weebit Nano’s ReRAM devices. The models, based on Weebit Nano’sphysical samples and data, will be the basis for creating a Silvaco TCAD solution for joint customers employing ReRAMtechnology. Silvaco’s TCAD simulation will dramatically speed up the design, fabrication and commercial use of ReRAMtechnology through the elimination of expensive and time-consuming experimental wafers during technology adoptionby OEMs.

    Eric Guichard, VP & GM of Silvaco TCAD Business Unit, said “We’re seeing a dramatic rise in the use of new devicesfor big data, artificial intelligence and neuromorphic computing in which ReRAM technology will play a key role. WeebitNano is a key player in the ReRAM market, and we are proud to develop these new models with them. This will enablethe semiconductor industry to embed ReRAM technology in their designs in a much more efficient manner.”

    Coby Hanoch, CEO of Weebit Nano, said: “Silvaco provides state-of-the-art device models and TCAD tools that arewidely used by semiconductor companies. We are excited to establish this joint development program with Silvaco socustomers will have early access to our ReRAM technology on the most powerful simulation tools in the industry andcan fast-track the release of their next-generation products. This is another key step by Weebit Nano to accelerate theincorporation of ReRAM technology by a larger number of OEM customers.”

    About Weebit Nano Limited

    Weebit Nano is a leader in the development of next generation computer memory technology, and plans to becomethe new industry standard in this space. Its goal is to address the growing need for a significantly higher performanceand lower power computer memory technology. Weebit Nano’s ReRAM technology is based on fab-friendly SiliconOxide, allowing the company to rapidly execute, without the need for special equipment or preparations. The companysecured several patents to ensure optimal commercial and legal protection for its ground-breaking technology.

    Weebit Nano’s technology enables a quantum leap, allowing semiconductor memory elements to be significantlycheaper, faster, more reliable and more energy efficient than the existing Flash technology. Weebit Nano has signedan R&D agreement with Leti, an R&D institute that specialises in nanotechnologies, to further develop SiOx ReRAMtechnology.
