Actually, Mr. Niebel is mistaken. Numonyx (now Micron) was supposed to have the 45nm 1-Gbit thing by mid 2009: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4191577/Numonyx-confirms-45-nm-jump-for-phase-change-memory Of course, Micron had already determined (and declared so publicly) in 2004 that PCM does not scale, 10 years after signing that exclusive royalty-bearing license for the PCM patents. So, what's news?

Volatile Memory, Micron is embracing Unity's RRAM. That is news to me. What do you have against PCM?

mark.lapedus: I have nothing against PCM. I have quite a bit against the perpetrators of the longest-running TechnoPonzi scheme and their willing and unwilling collaborators. As some have said, PCM = Phantom-change memory or phony-change memory.

Micron trying to cover with investment in NOR, PCM and CMOX. I think their confidence in NAND and DRAM is faltering. CMOX is even more one-off than (other) RRAM.

Never heard of the Unity Semiconductor. If they had gone, I might not have noticed. Nonetheless, Micron is smart to snap one - hope it is a good value.

VM, Who are the perpetrators?
