The client had developed a new resistive random-access memory technology that is printable, and includes the key advantage that it can be manufactured in a transparent and/or flexible form factor. The client wished to highlight the transparency feature of the memory technology and demonstrate its functionality by incorporating it into a futuristic application that would appeal to the client’s current and potential investors.
Boost Design completed the following activities:
- Work with the client to develop options for a technology concept demonstrator – the application was a touchscreen kiosk that included numerous transparent electronic functions in addition to the RRAM memory
- Collaborate with the University of New South Wale’s School of Materials Science & Engineering in order to specify the memory requirements
- Develop the custom RRAM read and write circuitry for use in authentication and for pre-programming user access codes as part of prototype setup, respectively
- Development of high-quality and photorealistic prototype images, suitable for marketing purposes
- Development of basic display graphics, such as a static image for each functional state (ready to receive pin code, pin code correct, pin code incorrect).
- Development of a fully functioning prototype, suitable for operation and use in the promotional video
The demonstrator product has assisted the client to secure funding for further development of the technology: https://smallcaps.com.au/strategic-elements-government-funding-nanocube-printable-memory-device-project/
