Paper Abstract

This paper demonstrates that electronically passivated Si-SiO2 interface enables the development of memories for both data storage and data processing. Experimental results on charge-retention times are presented to illustrate that the Si DRAMs would become nonvolatile memories if implemented into SiC. The disadvantages of the DRAM cell (1C1T), in terms of limited memory-capacity increase, are discussed to highlight the need for development of superior memory cells.
