Direct Bond Interconnect (DBI®) hybrid bonding portfolio licensed to YMTC for its 3D NAND memory products.
Xperi Holding Corporation today announced that the company entered into a license agreement with Yangtze Memory Technologies Co., Ltd. (YMTC), a world-class memory solutions company based in China. The agreement includes access to a foundational portfolio of semiconductor intellectual property related to Xperi’s DBI hybrid bonding technology.
“Xperi’s DBI hybrid bonding is a key enabling technology for current and future generations of high performance, high-capacity 3D NAND flash memory,” said Craig Mitchell, president of Invensas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi. “We are proud to provide YMTC access to our foundational IP portfolio and look forward to further expanding our relationship.”
Hybrid bonding 3D integration technology is increasingly being utilized in various semiconductor devices such as sensors, memory, and logic devices to enable enhanced performance and functionality while reducing size and cost. In 3D NAND applications, DBI hybrid bonding technology enables the disaggregation of the memory array and logic circuitry allowing the optimal wafer process node to be used for each.
Xperi has pioneered fundamental advances in the semiconductor industry over the past 30 years. With a large and growing portfolio of intellectual property covering hybrid bonding, semiconductor packaging, and semiconductor processing technologies, Xperi licenses and partners with leading semiconductor companies around the world.
