Also the MR ratio is too small, even the transistor Ion range will cover it up.

I think getting well defined states in small, isolated magnetic elements is more difficult than once thought.

Also, as the elements gets smaller, they become more thermally unstable.

As a resistance-based memory, MRAM must scale by increasing its level resistance. For a given resistance-area product, this can be achieved by directly shrinking the MTJ. This is similar to the PCM approach. Still I don't know why it hasn't be pursued more actively.

It's been a long, hard slog for MRAM.
