We demonstrate a dynamic Verilog-A RRAM compact model capable of simulating real-time DC cycling and pulsed operation device behavior, including random variability that is inherent to RRAM. This paper illustrates the physics and capabilities of the model. The model is verified using different sets of experimental data. The DC/Pulse parameter fitting(More)
The emerging paradigm of 'abundant-data' computing requires real-time analytics on enormous quantities of data collected by a mushrooming network of sensors. Todays computing technology, however, cannot scale to satisfy such big data applications with the required throughput and energy efficiency. The next technology frontier will be monolithically(More)
The vertical scaling for the multi-layer stacked 3D vertical resistive random access memory (RRAM) cross-point array is investigated. The thickness of the multi-layer stack for a 3D RRAM is a key factor for determining the storage density. A vertical RRAM cell with plane electrode thickness (tm) scaled down to 5 nm, aiming to minimize 3D stack height, is(More)
Disturbance characteristics of cross-point resistive random access memory (RRAM) arrays are comprehensively studied in this paper. An analytical model is developed to quantify the number of pulses (#Pulse) the cell can bear before disturbance occurs under various sub-switching voltage stresses based on physical understanding. An evaluation methodology is(More)
A methodology to analyze device-to-circuit characteristics and predict memory array performance is presented. With a five-parameter characterization of the selection device and a compact model of RRAM, we are able to capture the behaviors of reported selection devices and simulate 1S1R cell/array performance with RRAM compact modeling using HSPICE.
