Tohoku University and Tokyo Electron announced that they will jointly develop Spintronics memory integration and manufacturing technology. Professor Tetsuo Endoh from Tohoku's Center for Spintronics Integrated Systems (CSIS) will lead the research. The aim of this project is to present a miniature highly-integrated Spintronics memory device and the process technologies needed to commercially manufacture it.
The CSIS is considered one of the world's leaders in Spintronics memory, and will contribute its magnetic material technologies, device technologies and design technologies. TEL will contribute process and equipment technologies. The video above shows the Spintronics IC work done at the CSIS.
