Silicon processes and engineering services provider MEARS Technologies Inc. and Elpida Memory Inc. have signed a commercial agreement to together using MEARS Silicon Technology (MST for CMOS) to create more efficient chip performance.

By enhancing the physical properties of silicon, MEARS has demonstrated the MST for CMOS claims to improve overall chip performance and reduce static power without introducing any new materials into existing manufacturing process flows.

"Partnering with MEARS gives us access to a company deeply experienced in materials technology for device scaling," said Elpida's chief technology officer, Takao Adachi. "This will help boost Elpida's memory products to a much higher technology level, especially in terms of power consumption."

"We are confident that our technology will help Elpida to increase market share with differentiated productswithout the need for sweeping changes in materials or huge investments in new equipment and facilities," said MEARS founder and president, Robert Mears.
