Intel to present Floating Body Cells memory

Posted on Monday, December 11 2006 @ 17:01:44 CET by

On Tuesday we can expect a new paper from Intel about something called Floating Body Cell memory, it's basically a kind of embedded memory with a lot of potential benefits.
There are two types of embedded memory in common use, SRAM and Embedded DRAM (eDRAM). SRAM has 6 transistors per cell making it big, but it is fast and easy to manufacture. eDRAM has a transistor and capacitor making it more dense than SRAM but also a lot slower and harder to make.

Floating Body Cell (FBC) is in the middle, it has only one transistor so it is dense but also slower than SRAM yet easier to make than eDRAM. Six of one, half a dozen of the other, but it looks to be splitting the middle fairly well. It is still a little early in development, so some or all of these promises may not work out as well as Intel hopes.
