There will be more surprises coming with the CBRAM...,

Adesto claims to have 'product', but no data sheets, or even part codes ? Hard to see customers making a design-in decision, on that platform. Supply operating range looks relatively narrow, and no mention on write-cycle endurance, or byte/page write speeds, or SPI speeds, or Quad or DDR SPI support....

Kinnar--Others are interested in CBRAM, if you go back to EETimes http://www.eetimes.com/design/memory-design/4214734/Phase-change-memory--PCM--progress-report--part-2?pageNumber=3 You will find that Micron have CBRAM on their list of a number of potential NV memory technologies under evaluation. Listing the various areas of risk, they attribute the highest risk to manufacturing. The other problem that will require careful consideration, especially with respect to scaling is the matrix isolation device which must be bi-directional. The sold state "plating" process itself should work just as well at dimensions of sub 100nm as above.

Seems a very good achievement in memory technology, from the article it proves to be the best in all the aspects, package density, access-time and power consumption. But as most of the other manufactures are not after it, it means there will be some kind of hurdles in the manufacturing of CBRAM.

So I'm curious how Altis plans to scale below 130 nm, since it's key customer is projecting to 20 nm.

It's good to see that CBRAM technology consumes power that is 100 times lower than that of a FLASH memory...what about the cost? Cheaper than FLASH as well? Could not find the data sheet of the CBRAM memory devices on the Adesto's website.
