Industrial Award for relay-based non-volatile memory concept developed in ZeroAMP

The University of Bristol team received an Industrial Innovation Concept Award from MBDA, the world leading EU company in missile systems, for their work on a non-volatile memory prototype based on nanoelectromechanical relays, the technology being developed in ZeroAMP. The high-temperature, radiation-hard and zero standby power memory cell uses nanoelectromechanical relays described in two recent publications:
