Research Institution
In this SBIR program, SMI will work with an established producer of radiation hardened CRAM and the originators of CRAM technology to utilize the manufacturing benefits of i) MOCVD processing, ii) advanced active material compositions for CRAMs, and thus, (iii) further optimize CRAMs. In Phase I we will sample produced materials in test structures with device production partner(s), determine potential benefits and refine the Phase II program definition according to achieved results. Based upon a successful Phase I, in Phase II we will do direct comparisons to conventional (product level) devices to determine if pursuit of Phase III manufacturing using MOCVD and /or advanced compositions is warranted for continued product improvement and work with device manufacturers to advance CRAM devices utilizing improved quality materials for advanced CRAM manufacture. Phase III would be implementation of Phase II developments in CRAM products and / or in the making of superior CRAM products.
