The 0.9 V is for read operation. It still needs 3V for write. Speed is 800 ms for write (target). Code storage is low endurance but Mb density, data is higher endurance but lower density.

Peter, you missed Altis' CBRAM announcement too...,

@Gil Russell Did I? If you mean this announcement http://www.eetimes.com/design/memory-design/4411095/Altis-upgrades-embedded-non-volatile-memory from April 2, then I did not. If you mean something else, then possibly I did.

My apologies. Sometimes your valued contributions are overlooked. Noticed in your write-up the last part that you commented on: "..,full compatibility with standard manufacturing back-end-of-line flows, including robust data retention through the solder reflow process." said Narbeh Derhacobian, CEO of Adesto, in the same statement." A broadside on Phase Change from Narbeh - the high temperature experienced during reflow will erase it...,

Good for the start, but too early for cheer. From years ago Fujitsu and TI is promoting FRAM MCU, non-volatile RAM, which reads and writes data at 1.8V with low power consumption. Actually Panasonic also has a very talented but too closed FRAM team beside ReRAM. Panasonic still needs much more time to be able to stably manufacture and be accepted by the market. You can write infinite with FRAM, But ReRAM will always have limited write cycle(100K) which is extremely unuseful for frequent logging applications. They say smart meters as target application in the video, with 100K write, forget it.

It is surprising why Panasonic wouldn't push their FRAM.

@GermanInTI Thanks for your comment on FRAM MCU (Wolverine). However, I am not sure about ReRAM ALWAYS having limited write cycling. Some of the learned papers on metal-oxide ReRAM have shown extremely high cycling endurance. Samsung and KAIST reported on a tantalum-oxide bilayer structure (same as Panasonic) with 10^12 cycles endurance. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4217799/Samsung-trillion-cycle-ReRAM

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
