The silicon industry is currently heading toward 10 nm technology in integrated circuits. Promoting this market trend is largely dependent on the development of super-resolution in silicon microscopy. We propose a novel method that provides the ability to probe the silicon under surface in super-resolution. More specifically, we developed a new concept for beam shaping…Read More
Embedded memories, typically implemented with a 6T SRAM bitcell consume an ever growing share of the total silicon area and power. Gain cell embedded DRAM (GC-eDRAM) is an alternative to 6T SRAM, offering higher density, lower leakage, and 2-port operation. However, gain cells: Rely on dynamic storage Results in very low data retention times Increases…Read More
The Problem Due to the growing demand for high-density embedded memories in modern microprocessors and other VLSI Systemon- Chip (SoC) designs, gain cell embedded DRAM (GCeDRAM) has emerged as an alternative to static random access memory (SRAM). GCeDRAM is known for its high-density, non-destructive read operation, low leakage power, and two-port operation. However, GCeDRAM requires…Read More
With advances in the Internet of Things (IoT) applications and the expansion of mobile devices, energy consumption has become a primary focus of attention in integrated circuit design. These mobile battery-operated devices need to operate for extended periods without recharging and therefore requiring ultra-low energy consumption. Many IoT devices require operation in a wide range…Read More
The huge amount of sensing devices found in future cars, homes, workplaces, and cities require a much stricter security requirement for identification and authentication. It is essential that during hardware communication, the two parties are capable of identifying each other through secret keys and reliable authentication protocols. A technique which has recently emerged is the…Read More
The Problem The huge amount of sensing devices found in future cars, homes, workplaces, and cities require a much stricter security requirement for identification and authentication. However, when the variation is small, the logical value will be determined by noise and can vary from run to run and the bit is unstable. The unstable bits…Read More
The Problem An important power management functions in commercial IC’s is temperature sensing. Since commercial processors can have as many as 40 sensors, the industry is constantly pursuing a small, low-power sensor. The Solution We present a promising, novel ultra-miniature ring-oscillator sensor which at 750 um2 is the world’s smallest integrated smart sensor and has the…Read More
BIRAD grants exclusive and non-exclusive licenses for the commercialization of BIU-based research findings, both to established companies and to new startup ventures established around University technology.
The licenses are granted for specific patents and/or know-how and are limited to a specific field and/or specific products. Licenses include diligence milestones for the development and sale of products covered by the license – to avoid technology "shelving" – and typically include a combination of the following forms of consideration: royalties, milestone payments, upfront fees, equity and/or annual license fees.
