8 Issues 1 In order to enjoy “The Silence of the (other) RAM’s,” Reliability comes first to be focused on.*Ferroelectric materials: Should be stable under thermal budgets.*Fatigue: Some 1E+15 is required to compete with SRAM and DRAM.
9 Issues 2 Application: Cost: Limited to small capacity embedded memory. Some “killer applications” should appear to establish FeRAM market.Cost:Not competitive due to large cell size. 1T1C and 3D capacitor are mandatory to reduce cost.
