Atomera Reaches 300 Patents Focused on Perfecting Atomic Level Engineering and Advanced Material Sciences for the Semiconductor Industry

Nov 17, 2021

LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atomera Incorporated (NASDAQ:ATOM), a semiconductor materials and technology licensing company, today announced the company now has 300 pending and issued patents. Throughout 20 years of advanced development, the company has built an expansive portfolio of atomic-level materials technologies that form the company’s Mears Silicon Technology (MST®). These inventions have enabled Atomera to improve semiconductors across the board, such as providing up to a 30% increase in circuit performance, improving transistor power efficiency, and reducing semiconductor die sizes by 15-20% without the need for major capital equipment expenditures.


Patents are the core asset of the company’s technology licensing business model. When partnering with customers, Atomera works together with customers using their proprietary know-how to find the optimal means of integrating MST into their semiconductor manufacturing process. Because MST integrates into existing manufacturing flows, customers can quickly take advantage of Atomera’s growing patents portfolio to improve power, performance and area (PPA) and address the slowdown of Moore’s law.

“MST is a sophisticated collection of innovative technologies which enhance semiconductor devices,” said Scott Bibaud, CEO and President of Atomera. “This milestone is a testament to the hard work that not only makes us successful, but is also providing new materials technologies enabling significant advances in mobile, AI, automotive, and other application segments.”
