ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 1 -- S. Aqua Semiconductor, Wilmington, Del., has been assigned a patent (8,363,451) developed by G.R. Mohan Rao, Richardson, Texas, for a "random access memory with CMOS-compatible nonvolatile storage element and parallel storage capacitor."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems, methods, and memory device with row lines and column lines arranged in a matrix configuration with a memory cell coupled to one of the column lines and one of the row lines. The memory cell includes a storage capacitor with a first plate coupled to a storage node, a CMOS-compatible non-volatile storage element having a node coupled to the storage node and configured to hold a charge corresponding to a binary value, and an access transistor coupled to the storage node. The access transistor includes a word line gate, a first node, and a second node, the word line gate being coupled to the one of the plurality of row lines, the first node being coupled to the one of the plurality of column lines, the second node being coupled to the storage node and to said node of the CMOS-compatible non-volatile storage element."
The patent application was filed on June 22, 2012 (13/530,378). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,363,451&OS=8,363,451&RS=8,363,451
