Research and Markets: A Magnetic Moment: Prospects for MRAM Technology, Markets and Applications
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/w3dzts/a_magnetic)
has announced the addition of the "A
Magnetic Moment: Prospects for MRAM Technology, Markets and Applications"
report to their offering.
Current charge-based semiconductor storage technologies such as SRAM,
DRAM, NOR flash and NAND flash face scaling challenges as geometries
shrink below 20nm. As a result, a marked increase in research activity
focused on alternative memory technologies has occurred over the last
Non-charge storage-based memories such as FeRAM and MRAM offer fast
RAM (News - Alert)-like performance along with non-volatility and extremely high
endurance. Although in commercial production, both suffer from high
costs vis-à-vis current technologies and have only been able to address
All that is likely to change with the availability of samples of
in-plane spin-torque transfer MRAM (STT-MRAM) from Avalanch Technology
and Everspin Technologies. These achievements are a stepping stone to
next generation perpendicular STT-MRAM which promises a scalable path
with the potential to broaden its appeal into mainstream consumer
applications. As a consequence, the embedded and standalone non-volatile
RAM markets are on the cusp of explosive growth in the next few years.
A Magnetic Moment: Prospects for MRAM Technology, Markets and
Applications offers an independent view of the opportunities and
challenges presented by MRAM technology and its potential as one of the
leading contenders in the emerging memory space.
