The 34th IEEE International Conference on MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) will be held virtually on 25-29 January 2021. The IEEE MEMS Conference series has evolved into the most prestigious annual meeting reporting research results on every aspect of microsystems technology. The conference thrives on the rapid proliferation MEMS technology that largely stems from the commitment and success of the microsystems research community as well as a bustling industrial community.
Dr. Dinesh Pamunuwa, Elliott Worsey, Dr. Mukesh Kulsreshath and Qi Tang (UNIVBRIS) will be glad to attend this online conference, and present some features on the devices used in ZeroAMP, via an Open Poster and Flash Presentation entitled "Stiction-based non-volatile memory for harsh environments".
We are happy to welcome Dr. Mukesh Kulsreshath and Qi Tang who joined recently the team of the University of Bristol to contribute to the ZeroAMP project!
Dr. Mukesh Kulsreshath, a senior Research Associate with expertise in fabrication, is involved in the development of non-volatile memory (NVM) cells, where one-time programmable (OTP) memory and reprogrammable memory are targeted.
Qi Tang is a PhD student involved in the modelling, design and simulation of energy efficient circuit architectures for the NVM and FPGA demonstrators.
The University of Bristol and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, two partners of ZeroAMP, already collaborated in a previous work related to non-volatile nano-relays. A joint publication in Nature Communications "Nanoelectromechanical relay without pull-in instability for high-temperature non-volatile memory" was a nice achievement of this collaborative work. Read the article here.
This high-level paper and related technology have deserved a press release from the University of Bristol, which has been picked up by press wires and repeated in several specialised media. Among them, an in-depth article is available here.
The story does not end there: in ZeroAMP, seven partners are now dedicated to build a robust NVM demonstrator (at Technology Readiness Level 4 TRL-4) and to demonstrate the first NEM relay-based field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for harsh environments. More information is available on the project page of our ZeroAMP website.
Piers Tremlett, the ZeroAMP Project Coordinator and Exploitation Manager, will give a presentation at the online conference "Making Sense of Sensors", organised by IMAPS-UK on 12 November 2020.
This technical conference will gather leading industry experts of the Microelectronics community, aiming at discussing the packaging challenges in the context of growing use of sensors for wide applications.
