TOSHIBA INTRODUCES LOW-CONTRAST VASCULAR IMAGING

Low-Contrast Imaging Improves Visualization of Soft Tissue to Improve Patient Care and Diagnostic Confidence in the Angio Suite
 To continue its commitment to advancing medical imaging technology and improving diagnosis, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. introduces Low-Contrast Imaging (LCI) for Toshiba’s Infinix™-i systems with mid (12” x 12”) and large (12” x 16”) flat-panel detectors (FPD). Toshiba will demonstrate its low-contrast imaging capabilities at this year’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual meeting in San Francisco, Sept. 21 – Sept. 25, 2009 (Booth #705).

“Toshiba’s low-contrast imaging enables better visualization of soft tissue to improve the imaging and treatment of patients,” said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Using low-contrast imaging in the angio suite improves patient safety and diagnostic confidence by offering CT-like images of soft tissue, including brain tissue, cerebral ventricles and hepatic visualization, without requiring additional exams.”

Beneficial for both physicians and patients, low-contrast imaging allows better visualization of soft tissue in the angiography suite and enables more accurate diagnosis of a variety of diseases using a single system. Additionally, this technology may be used to confirm appropriate endpoints during interventional procedures, such as aortic stent-grafting. Capturing CT-like images without the use of an additional test helps improve accuracy and workflow in the angio suite. It also leads to lowering overall health care costs by using a single system to treat numerous diseases and handle multiple procedures.

The Infinix-i line features a five-axis C-arm that enables head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage and allows greater clinician access to the patient for diagnostic and interventional procedures. The freely moving components, ergonomically friendly design and five-axis positioner enable physicians to obtain optimal angles for cardiac diagnosis and interventional procedures without repositioning the patient. Infinix’s unique, flexible design improves workflow and collaboration between cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, anesthesiologists and clinical staff during exams, especially in hybrid OR settings.

Toshiba Introduces Industry's First 512GB Solid State Drive

Toshiba has announced the expansion of their line up of NAND-flash-based solid state drives (SSD) with the industry’s first 2.5-inch 512-gigabyte (GB) SSD and a broad family of fast read/write SSDs based on 43 nanometer (nm) Multi-Level Cell NAND. The new drives provide a high level of performance and endurance for use in notebook computers, gaming and home entertainment systems.

In addition to the 2.5-inch, 512GB drive, the 43nm NAND SSD family also includes capacities of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, offered in 1.8-inch or 2.5-inch drive enclosures or as SSD Flash Modules. Samples of the new drives will be available in first quarter (January to March) 2009, with mass production in the second quarter (April to June) 2009.

Toshiba’s second-generation SSDs bring increased capacity and performance for notebook computers, utilizing an advanced MLC controller which is also compatible with further advanced process, that achieves higher read/write speeds, parallel data transfers and wear leveling to optimize performance, reliability and endurance. The drives enable improved system responsiveness with a maximum sequential read speed of 240MB per second (MBps) and maximum sequential write speed of 200MBps, enabling an improvement in overall computing experience, and faster boot and application loading times. The drives also offer AES data encryption to prevent unauthorized data access.

Toshiba, IBM, and AMD Develop World’s Smallest Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) Cell With High-k/Metal Gate

Toshiba, IBM, and AMD has announced that they have together developed a Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) cell that has an area of only 0.128 square micrometers (μm2), the world’s smallest functional SRAM cell that makes use of fin-shaped Field Effect Transistors (FinFETs).

toshiba_sram_cells

The cell, developed with a high-k/metal gate (HKMG) material, offers advantages over planar-FET cells for future technology generations. SRAM cells are circuit components in most systems-level, large-scale integrated circuits such as microprocessors, and smaller SRAM cells can help provide smaller, faster processors that consume less power. The technology was announced on December 16 in a technical paper presented at the 2008 International Electron Devices Meeting in San Francisco, California.

To reduce the transistor size when SRAM cells are created using conventional planar transistors, IC manufacturers generally adjust properties by doping more impurities into the device area. However, this adjustment creates undesirable variability and deteriorates the SRAM stability. This issue is becoming critical, especially at the 22nm technology node and beyond. The use of FinFETs — vertical transistors with fin-shaped undoped silicon channels — is an alternative approach to allow SRAM cell size reduction with less characteristic variation.

Researchers from the three companies fabricated a highly scaled FinFET SRAM cell using HKMG. It is the smallest nonplanar-FET SRAM cell yet achieved: at 0.128μm2, the integrated cell is more than 50 percent smaller than the 0.274μm2 nonplanar-FET cell previously reported. To achieve this goal, the team optimized the processes, especially for depositing and removing materials, including HKMG from vertical surfaces of the non-planar FinFET structure.

The researchers also investigated the stochastic variation of FinFET properties within the highly scaled SRAM cells and simulated SRAM cell variations at an even smaller cell size. They verified that FinFETs without channel doping improved transistor characteristic variability by more than 28 percent. In simulations of SRAM cells of 0.063μm2 area, equivalent to or beyond the cell scaling for the 22nm node, the results confirmed that the FinFET SRAM cell is expected to offer a significant advantage in stable operation compared to a planar-FET SRAM cell at this generation.

By successfully fabricating highly scaled FinFET SRAM cells with HKMG, the companies have positioned FinFETs as an attractive transistor structure for SRAMs in the 22nm node and beyond. The new technology is a step forward to more powerful practical devices.
