June 8, 2004 — Cavendish Kinetics, a Holland-based semiconductor company working to integrate MEMS devices into standard CMOS processes, announced its Nanomech technology for creating submicron structures for use as computer memories.
The technology is scaleable and can be used with process nodes to below 45 nanometers, according to a news release. The company intends the technology to be used in the nonvolatile (meaning it remembers data even after you hit the “off” button) memory market.
While the 25-person company is headquarterd in Holland, its research is conducted at Cavendish, England and development is done in Stuttgart, Germany. The company says it intends to announce its first intellectual property product in the third quarter.
