Home > Press > NVE Notified of Grant of VMRAM Patent

Abstract:
NVE Corporation (Nasdaq:NVEC) announced today that it has been notified by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) of the expected grant of a patent relating to Vertical Transport Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (VMRAM).

NVE Notified of Grant of VMRAM Patent

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN | Posted on March 20th, 2007

NVE has been notified that the patent, titled "Radial field generating selection conductor device," will be issued today. The patent is number 7,193,286 and is the grant of a patent under the application published by the USPTO as number 2006-0022238. The new patent relates to addressing Vertical Transport MRAM arrays.

The co-inventors were an NVE researcher and Professor Jian-Gang Zhu of Carnegie Mellon University, and the patent is assigned to NVE.

MRAM is an integrated-circuit memory which is fabricated with nanotechnology and which uses electron spin to store data. MRAM may have the potential to combine many of the best attributes of different types of semiconductor memories. VMRAM is a high-density type of MRAM that employs current perpendicular to the plane to switch spintronic memory elements. Defense Department documents have said VMRAM could be applicable in general ultra-dense nonvolatile memory or as a hard disk replacement.

The grant brings NVE's U.S. patent total to 41. The company has more than 100 patents worldwide issued, pending, or licensed from others. Links to the new patent and NVE's other U.S. patents can be found at the "About NVE" section of the company's Website ( http://www.nve.com ).
