From DailyTech:

Innovative Silicon (ISi) and Hynix Semiconductor today announced an agreement for the Korean memory maker to license Z-RAM high-density memory intellectual property for use in its DRAM chips. The deal between the two companies is worth more than $10 million, with additional royalties in production.

Z-RAM was initially developed as the world’s lowest-cost embedded memory technology for logic-based ICs such as mobile chipsets, microprocessors, networking and other consumer applications.

Z-RAM-based DRAMs will use a single transistor bitcell – rather than a combination of transistors and capacitor elements – representing the first fundamental DRAM bitcell change since the invention of the DRAM in the early 1970s.
