In this article, we report the first experimental demonstration of sub-20nm MTJ cells for investigating the downscaling feasibility of spin-transfer torque (STT) MRAM, one of the most promising candidates to replace conventional memories. We demonstrate the STT switching of 17nm node P-MTJ cells, the smallest feature size ever reported, utilizing perpendicular materials possessing high interface anisotropy of 2.5 erg/cm2 and improved integration processes to achieve reproducible switching with… CONTINUE READING
