Ovonyx Inc. and Nanochip Inc. have signed an agreement whereby Nanochip will license from Ovonyx thin-film nonvolatile semiconductor memory technology. The license agreement permits Nanochip to use Ovonyx memory technology on a royalty-bearing basis in its MEMS based, ultra-high density data storage systems.

Ovonyx says their technology uses a reversible phase-change memory process that has been previously commercialized worldwide in rewritable CD and DVD optical memory disks. The Ovonyx array-addressed semiconductor memory technology can potentially be used in standalone applications, such as Flash and DRAM replacements, as well as in embedded applications in many areas including MCUs and reconfigurable MOS logic.

In probe-based storage systems, Ovonyx explains that the reversible phase change data storage technology can permit the fabrication of robust, low-cost mass storage systems with bit densities of 1 Terabit/in2.
