I was surprised to see an article about phase-change memory (PCM) appear early this month in the well-respected British magazine The Economist. “Altered states” provides a good, basic introduction to PCM.
An investment site called Seeking Alpha has published a bit of strange forensic research that leads it to claim that the Apple iPhone 5 that will be announced tomorrow employs phase-change memory (PCM). What clue led to this conclusion? It … Continue reading
Tom’s Hardware is reporting that IBM recently obtained a patent on specially formulated phase-change memory (PCM) that will operate above 150°C. This is a significant achievement because PCM has a problem with ambient thermal annealing. If the chip temperature goes … Continue reading
Last week at the Flash Memory Summit, Dr. Sung Wook Park spoke about memory. No surprise there, but there were several surprises in Park’s presentation. The first surprise popped up in the slide immediately following the keynote presentation’s title slide: … Continue reading
Want more details about the new Micron 1Gbit Phase-Change Memory / 512Mbit SDRAM device? Here are several
Yesterday, Micron announced volume production of a new memory device containing one 1Gbit PCM (phase-change memory) die and one 512Mbit LPDDR2 SDRAM die. This morning, I had a conversation about this new device with Philippe Berge—Senior Director of the NOR, … Continue reading
Totally not expecting this. Today Micron announced high-volume availability of a multichip, packaged memory device that incorporates a 1Gbit PCM (Phase-Change Memory) and a 512Mbit LPDDR2 SDRAM. The PCM die is built with 45nm process technology. The multichip-packaged memory is … Continue reading
4th International Memory Workshop in Milan tackles all things non-volatile with respect to semiconductor memory. May 20-23
You will need to travel to Milan, Italy to attend the 4-day intensive event devoted to non-volatile memory, which seems to be the exclusive topic for the 4th International Memory Workshop Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits covers latest STT-MRAM … Continue reading
Professor Cristophe Muller of Aix-Marseille University gave an excellent overview of non-volatile semiconductor memory as the third ISQED keynote this week. It’s a very good overview of today’s landscape and well worth discussing in a wider forum like this blog. … Continue reading
