The Weebit Nano Ltd (ASX: WBT) share price is charging higher today, gaining 19% in early trade to $2.33.

It’s now settled at $2.22, up 13.27% on yesterday’s closing price.

Shares in the company – which develops next-generation memory technologies for the global semiconductor industry – closed yesterday at $1.96 each.

So, why are investors bidding up the ASX tech share’s price today?

A maiden public demonstration

The Weebit Nano share price is off to the races after the company reported today it will hold the first public demonstration of its ReRAM IP module.

That demonstration is intended to show the technology’s real-world capability as a “non-volatile memory (NVM) integrated into an actual subsystem”. It will take place at the three-day Leti Innovation Days event, currently underway in France.

According to the release, the interactive presentation will demonstrate its Weebit ReRAM functioning as an NVM memory block. The module will be fed live images and should retain that data while powered off, then display the data separately.

The Weebit Nano share price could also be getting a boost from the company reporting it expects its ReRAM module to publicly demonstrate its faster write speed compared to typical flash memory technology.

Commenting on the demonstration, CEO of Weebit Nano Coby Hanoch said:

This is the first time we are publicly demonstrating our ReRAM embedded in silicon, less than a year after taping out the module. The demo of our ReRAM technology represents yet another key technical milestone as we progress toward full productisation. The demo will be a great asset for use in our sales activities with potential customers.
