Unless you are a major “Computer Geek” you probably don’t know that your current computer uses a product called DRAM to store its basic instruction set. This is the memory that is involved in starting your computer.
You probably also don’t know that DRAM’s days are numbered. Not only a USA company is one of the leaders in the manufacture of its replacement called MRAM. But Everspin Technologies, Inc. is located right here in the Valley or the Sun.
With MRAM, data is stored by means of magnetic storage elements instead of as electric charges or current flows.
More than 20 Japanese and US chip-related companies are joining forces to develop mass-production techniques for a next-generation chip technology called magnetoresistive random access memory, or MRAM, according to a report in Nikkei's Asian Review. Players in the new research push include Tokyo Electron, Shin-Etsu Chemical, Renesas Electronics, Hitachi, and US memory giant Micron Technology.
The companies "will dispatch a few dozen researchers" to Tohoku University in northern Japan, according to Nikkei. The effort at Tohoku University will be led by professor Tetsuo Endoh. Development will begin in February.
While most companies are just in the process of getting ready to prototype MRAM Everspin is already manufacturing MRAM>
Everspin Technologies is the leading developer and manufacturer of magnetic RAM (MRAM)...Everspin's MRAM is the industry's fastest non-volatile memory [MRAM has] SRAM read/write cycle time, unlimited read/write endurance, [and is] non-volatile for greater than 20-years... Everspin has established an MRAM intellectual property portfolio of more than 600 active patents and applications, many of which are fundamental and essential for MRAM technologies.
The short non-technical version is that MRAM is a better, faster more stable and longer lasting product when compared to the ubiquitous DRAM.
