Development of Industry’s First Ever High-Speed Non-Volatile Resistance Memory as a Promising Next-Generation Memory
In the world of memory there is no in between. There is always a compromise at some point or another. While dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) enjoys a superior read/write speeds and endurance over its non-volatile memory counter part, it has a tendency to quickly losing data when the power supply is turned off. On the other hand NAND flash memory a leading example of nonvolatile memory has it own set of performance issues while being capable of retaining data even when the power has turned OFF.
Now, in order to take advantage of best of these two worlds, while distancing ourselves away from their shortcomings, Elpida has come up with first ever high-speed non-volatile resistance memory for short ReRAM prototype. This new type of non-volatile memory, a promising next-generation semiconductor memory technology has a capability of high-speed read/write with very little voltage spent. Read more
