After digesting the announcement, investors are gearing up momentum, pushing the 4DS Memory share price higher.
In today’s release, 4DS Memory advised that it has been granted an additional patent to add to its portfolio. Approved by the United States Patent & Trade Mark Office, this brings the company’s total number of granted patents within the US to 30.
The new patent is titled Resistive Memory Device Having An Oxide Barrier Layer (patent number 10,950,788).
The company noted that its patents and applications were all developed in-house and were wholly-owned. This gives 4DS peace of mind away from royalty and licencing commitments.

Commenting on the approval, 4DS Memory CEO and managing director Dr Guido Arnout said:
The granting of the 30th 4DS patent strengthens an already extensive portfolio of patents for Interface Switching ReRAM.
These patents and additional filed applications are strategically important for the commercialisation of 4DS technology going forward.
