Metalgrass launches a new knowledge hub to focus on Micro-LED displays

We are happy to announce a new Metalgrass knowledge hub, MicroLED-Info.com. This new site will focus on Micro-LED display technology and its future market. MicroLED is quickly becoming a promising future display technology.

Many expect the first Micro-LED devices to hit the market in the very near future, with first applications in the wearable market - and also in HUDs and HMDs. MicroLED promise great performance, very high efficiency and brightness - but of course there are still many technical challenges ahead.

The best of 2016 - top MRAM stories

2016 is soon over - and this was a very exciting year for the MRAM industry. Everspin floated on the Nasdaq and started sampling 256Mb STT-MRAM chips, other companies also announced and launched MRAM devices, and IBM announced that the "time for STT-MRAM is now". Interest in MRAM technologies is certainly on the rise!

Interview with Bo Hansen, CEO at Capres A/S

Bo Hansen, Capres CEOCapres A/S was established in 1999 in Denmark to develop a unique probe technology designed for in-line production monitoring in the semiconductor industry. The company, in collaboration with IBM, developed a resistivity measurement technique to characterize MTJ stacks.

Bo Svarrer Hansen, the company's CEO since 2002, was kind enough to answers a few questions we had, and share with us his views on the MRAM market and the company's measurement systems for MRAM and STT-MRAM device developers.

Q: Can you update us on Capres' current offers to the MRAM industry?

Capres customers are using our CIPTech® tools for R&D on small samples as well as volume production on 300 mm wafers. Depending on the configuration the tools measure with an in- plane or an out- of- plane magnetic field on blanket as well as patterned wafers.
