Phase-change memory devices fabricated using MOCVD-deposited 30% Ge, 20% Sb, and 50% Te atomic composition, GST325 alloy, are fully characterized. In 100-nm-size test devices, a more than 2x reduction of reset current and set resistance were demonstrated compared with equivalent devices using PVD-deposited GST225. The devices show set speeds of 175-260 ns and a ten-year data-retention temperature of 102°C, comparable with devices made using a PVD GST225 alloy. Cycle endurance of up to 7 × 109 was also demonstrated.
