Spin Torque Transfer switches the state of the bit with sufficient voltage of either polarity. See also above comment.

While there is a potential for disturb when applying high voltages of either polarity across the bit the circuitry needs to be carefully designed to avoid this problem...

I thought current had to go through a spin polarizing layer?

I thought the read current is spin-unpolarized, sensing the resistance - while the write current is spin-polarized, setting the resistance. If that is indeed the case then read-disturb should not be a problem...

If read long enough, the read current spin torque could flip the bit, no?

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.
