GlobalFoundries and Everspin jointly announced that the two parties have reached a new cooperation to use the GF 12LP (12nm FinFET) process to manufacture a new generation of STT-MRAM (spin transfer torque magnetoresistive memory), including independent MRAM chips and embedded eMRAM.

MRAM is a kind of non-volatile storage, and its prospects are widely optimistic. Intel, IBM, TDK, Samsung, Seagate and other industry giants have been studying for many years. The read and write speed can be comparable to traditional memory such as SRAM and DRAM, but at the same time It is non-volatile, that is, it can save data when power is off, which combines the advantages of traditional memory and flash memory.

STT-MRAM further realizes data writing through spin current. It has a series of advantages such as simple structure, low cost, low loss, and high speed, but it is difficult to increase the capacity density, so it is temporarily unrealistic to replace memory and flash memory, but it is very suitable. Used in various embedded fields.

SSD main catalyst: STT-MRAM spin magnetoresistive memory upgrade GF 12nm process

The good cooperation between GF and Everspin has been around for a long time. The first generation of STT-MRAM in 2012 was made of GF 40nm with a single capacity of 32MB. The second generation in 2019 was upgraded to GF 28nm, which quadrupled the single capacity. Up to 128MB.

Just a few days ago, the GF 22FDX process successfully trial-produced eMRAM, which can work for 100,000 cycles under an environment of -40°C to 125°C, and retain data for up to 10 years.

Further upgrading to 12nm will naturally help to further increase the capacity density of MRAM and continue to reduce costs, especially as the capacity of MRAM chips increases, more advanced processes are urgently needed.

The GF 12nm process includes two versions, 12LP and 12LP+. Although it is not too advanced, it has a wide range of applications. It is especially suitable for controllers, microcontrollers, etc., such as Phison Electronics and Sage’s many enterprise-level SSD masters. It is planned to join eMRAM to improve performance, reduce latency, and improve QoS.

Although you may not think you have seen MRAM, Everspin claims to have shipped 125 million MRAs to more than 100 customers.M chip, also quoted a report that by 2029 independent MRAM chip sales can reach 4 billion U.S. dollars.
