Anyone else remember core memory (magnetic circles read/written using multiple wires). Seems like a similar approach with different materials and finer lithography...

A transistor-free memory cell is the natural replacement of NAND flash, which is itself a transistor that is hard to manufacture. Also there should be a reduction of energy consumption per cycle. Lower read current takes too much time for error correction or prevention, resulting in excess energy consumption. CMOx still has low read current issue like NAND flash.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
