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:
