Innovative Silicon Inc. (ISi), the developer of Z-RAM™ (Zero Capacitor DRAM) high density memory IP, has announced that Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) has contracted to purchase a Z-RAM embedded memory technology license for potential use in its future microprocessor products.
Craig Sander, corporate VP of technology development at Advanced Micro Devices, commented: “The dramatic increase in density offered by ISi’s Z-RAM embedded memory can enable much larger on-chip microprocessor cache memories resulting in improved performance and reduced I/O power consumption.”

ISi’s president and CEO, Mark-Eric Jones, added: “We are very pleased to announce that AMD has contracted to purchase a technology license for our Z-RAM embedded memory technology. We are proud to have such a prominent and successful technology company with a strong reputation for innovation select Z-RAM memory, and underline the validity of the Z-RAM approach in comparison with other, less proven technologies. Working with AMD shows the increasing importance of using ultra-high density embedded memory in the semiconductor industry as embedded memory occupies larger and larger proportions of the microprocessor and embedded processor die area.”
