Samsung lied. Samsung's press release promised that the introduction in mobile handsets will happen by June 30th. Never happened. No product on the market uses any phase-change memory, for obvious reasons. Samsung and Numonyx have both lied repeatedly about the status of their phase-change programs.

"Greg Atwood is a senior fellow at Micron Technology, Inc. He received a M.S. degree in physics from Purdue University in 1979, joining Intel Corporation in the same year. " And you wrote "In 2008, ST and Intel combined their NOR, NAND (ST's NAND), and PCM business to form a new flash company called Micron."? Wow. This is supposed to be a professional web site for the industry. and you work for Micron?

Hey you wrote this whole article about the background environment and history of PCM. I would expect that you know about "Micron". Stating that Intel formed Micron in 2008 is the most ridiculous false statement I have ever seen on EETimes

Looks very interesting , but from what i see Samsung will beat Micron to the market with PCM. Samsung has stated it will introduce PCM in Mobile Handset first. Good Luck Micron

Phase change memory really compares unfavorably with spin torque MRAM and ReRAM in performance and compares unfavorably with Flash and ReRAM in cost. So ReRAM (or some call it RRAM) will eat PCM's lunch.

Incredible! Mr. Atwood claims that phase-change memory writes at 100 MB/s, yet the datasheet of Numonyx (now Micron) own PCM Omneo chip shows that it writes at less than 1 MB/s. When will the lies stop?

The phase change material interaction with nitride or other materials is nontrivial, especially when current density heating (which moves atoms) is needed to activate the mechanism.

"In 2008, ST and Intel combined their NOR, NAND (ST's NAND), and PCM business to form a new flash company called Micron. The formation of Micron has further accelerated progress in the development of PCM resulting in the first commercial PCM product at the end of 2008." You mean Numonyx, right?
