RESET current around 150 uA, even at 22 nm will be stuck around 100 uA.

Very impressive achievement for Micron...I remember heated discussions just few years ago whether phase change memory will ever make it...I guess it did!

Stan Ovshinsky died on October 17th 2012. Energy Conversion Devices is at the tail-end of bankruptcy liquidation. Micron is buying the 1/3 of Ovonyx that ECD owned for 12 million. NOW Micron is producing PCM at a good pace. Dag-nabbit! I had missed Ron NEale's two articles on crystal electrodes that are linked in the "related information" box. (top-right) He seems to be learning more about the peculiar mechanisms in play. Micron's recent patents indicate that they are now a powerhouse in R&D. The world will benefit greatly from the fruits of their research. I do not expect Intel to let Micron run loose for much longer. Time will tell eh?

The so-called PCM is not in their spec.

Nokia Asha has more ROM than RAM, strange way to use PCM (not even mentioned still).

Hmm, Nokia must be out of their mind - paying their hard earned (and shall we say - scarce) cash for a technology that according to many forum-posters' (no less important and knowledeable people than that!) perceptions of strangeness :) /end sarcasm

If it is used merely as bootup ROM, worth a laugh.

Thanks for the link. Only 90 nm 128 Mb available. Any 45 nm Gb must be sampling.
