About Innovative Silicon
Innovative Silicon, Inc. (ISi) licenses its ultra-dense Z-RAM® floating body memory technology to stand-alone DRAM manufacturers so they may manufacture the lowest-cost, most-advanced memory ICs. Licensees include Hynix Semiconductor for use in advanced DRAM chips. The heart of the Z-RAM floating body technology is the “zero-capacitor,” single-transistor bit cell that eliminates the complex capacitor found in today’s DRAM technologies – making it the world’s lowest-cost and most-scalable memory technology.
