Improving The Retention Characteristics Of 3D NAND Flash Memories

A technical paper titled “3D NAND Flash Memory Cell Current and Interference Characteristics Improvement With Multiple Dielectric Spacer” was published by researchers at Myongji University, Soongsil University, and Seoul National University. Abstract: "To achieve high density, the spacer length of three dimensional (3D) NAND device has been scaled down. When the program/erase cycle repeat... » read more

Extracting Intrinsic Mechanical Properties Of Thin Low-Dielectric Constant Materials With iTF Analysis

This white paper focuses on the optimization and use of Bruker’s iTF software package for the extraction of intrinsic (substrate independent) mechanical properties, particularly for thin, low-k materials. These considerations are split into two main parts: Measurement procedure (Section II) and iTF execution (Section III). The former outlines important aspects of acquiring proper experimental... » read more
