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.
