Memory can be a complicated matter. We've got DIMMs, SODIMMs, DRAM, NAND, Flash, Error Correcting RAM, RDRAM, and the list goes on. Numonyx has been a major memory player for awhile now, and just a few months after being acquired by Micron, the company is now introducing a set of products based on the new class of memory technology called phase change memory (PCM). These new devices deliver higher performance, endurance and simplicity for wired and wireless communications, consumer electronics, PCs, and other embedded application. We're told that the new embedded memory products blend many attributes... Read more...
NOR doesn't receive nearly the attention that NAND does in the memory world, but it's just as important for companies in the industry. In many ways, the two technologies are similar, but two main differences set them apart: first, the connections of the individual memory cells are different, and secondly, the interface provided for reading and writing the memory is different (NOR allows random-access for reading, NAND allows only page access). Why's this important? Because Micron, a mainstay in the sector, just announced their intentions to purchase Numonyx, which is a rather pricey way to get... Read more...
Intel and Numonyx held a press conference earlier today to discuss a phase change memory (PCM) breakthrough many years in the making. The companies have been jointly exploring the possibilities of multi-layered or stacked PCM cell arrays, and have finally been able to demonstrate a 64Mb test chip that has the ability.These vertically integrated memory cells, dubbed PCMS (phase change memory and switch), will be comprised of one PCM element layered with an Ovonic Threshold Switch (OTS) in a true cross point array. Intel and Numonx PCMS, Phase Change Memory and Switch PCM memory uses material state... Read more...
