From FRAM to CeRAM?

Is this the same Symetrix now promoting CeRAM? So they gave up their FRAM "day job"?

Some foundries (can't mention but guess) don't want to depreciate their embedded flash IP so soon.

And don't forget anti-fuse based one-time and few-time programmble memories. Actually FRAM is only slightly younger than phase-chnage memmory and precedes MRAM and ReRAM by a considerable time. Ramtron was founded in 1984 in Colorado Springs, Colorado and I was in the audience at the ISSCC at the unveiling of a prototype FRAM device in 1988. Symetrix Corp. was founded in 1986 by Carlos Paz de Araujo, also in Colorado Springs. So we could ask why has it taken so long to offer FRAM as an embeddede memory option?

After MRAM, Resistive RAM and now FRAM. It seems to be the momentum for alternatives to Nor Flash in the embedded world.

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.
