Spin-Ion Technologies

Spin-Ion Technologies logoSpin-Ion Technologies, established in 2017 as a spin-off from CNRS, developed a unique patented process that increases the performance of MRAM magnetic layers - by improving the homogeneity, increasing the magnetic performance and increasing yields.

The process is based on an ultra-fast ion beam treatment of the multilayer stack enabling improved structural properties. Spin-Ion's technology can be integrated with the deposition system as a plug-in ion beam module that allows very high throughput.

Tokyo Electron

Tokyo Electron (TEL), established in 1963 is based in Japan and is a global supplier of semiconductor and FPD production equipment worldwide. Product lines include coater/developers, thermal processing systems, plasma etch systems, CVD systems, surface preparation systems, and test systems.

In November 2012 TEL acquired Magnetic Solutions, a magnetic annealing systems developer.


Toshiba is a diversified manufacturer and marketer of advanced electronic and electrical products. Toshiba has an active MRAM research program, focusing on Perpendicular STT-RAM.

Toshiba reported several advances, and in 2015 presented a highly-efficient test chip.
