It's rife with errors, like where did they get 10 nJ per bit for NAND? And STT needs transistor isolation, that's at least 6F^2. MLC is not even an option with low MR ratio.

It's a Micron foil

@dnh I used foils provided by Micron at the largest size we can accommodate (did you note you can "click to enlarge" them?) Can you provide more specifics on what you would like to see improved? Also, don't hesitate to email me at rick.merritt@ubm.com

The placing of Flash on the DIMM is an exciting development, with the potential of greatly improving PC performance. Unfortunately the figures in this article are so bad that it lacks credibility: What is 25M ns? Is that 25ms? Also the figures appear to be scanned in at a low resolution and are very hard to read, especially in the General/PrintView. While this is unfortunately typical of EETimes articles, the author of a post is responsible for his/her own postings. Rick Merritt - please fix your own post, and try to exert your influence to fix this generic problem.

I've always felt DRAM and NVM (i.e., Flash) had different applications, almost exclusive of each other. Generally, I don't expect what is buffered in DRAM to be stored directly, nor what has been stored to be directly read into a DRAM buffer.

Sounds similar to what Spansion and Virident tried to do a few years back, but with NOR. EcoRam DIMMs.

Viking Technology's ArxCis-NV has this same basic architecture for DDR3, and it is on the market now.

FLASH requires ERASE and WRITE, Just the WRITE is much longer time than DRAM's WRITE. How is that taken care?

Micron also working with AgigA on NVDIMM http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/memory/display/20121114132456_Micron_and_AgigA_to_Develop_Non_Volatile_DIMM_Technology.html

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
