Nantero is a Boston-based nanotechnology company that has developed NRAM (non-volatile random access memory). It can be utilized in various industries such as consumer electronics, mobile devices, wearable technology, enterprise networks and systems, automotive, and industrial. It can be used in specific products including smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and more. Nantero often works with semiconductor companies to aid with core development projects.
The company has created a memory device that combines dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) and flash into one chip. It does not manufacture the chip; rather, it sells its intellectual property to other companies which then create the product. The chip contains carbon nanotube (CNT) memory cells which consist of hundreds of nanotubes between two electrodes. Nantero states that the memory stored on the chip can withstand temperatures of 300° Celsius and last for 300 years. It works in complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS), making it compatible with most existing products that use memory chips and also uses little energy in standby mode.
