Micron's enthusiasm for PCM has been slowly eroding since its transfer to Micron from Intel. PCM has a thermal erase problem hindering application in production environments that use of reflow. High write current has not been solved satisfactorily and does not have a good outlook on prospects of improvement going forward.

Micron has become quiet on the next generation NVM front - speculation that they are pursuing CBRAM persists.

It helps to have talked with the Micron people involved in the HMC effort over time. They always say after speaking about TSV stacking of DRAM dies add "..., and that's not the only thing you can stack". Also, there is a lot of activity at the company's Lehi, Utah facility.

It was pointed out to me by a reader through email that Micron is still in fact in the PCM business, although the perception is that they aren't from some analysts. Thoughts? Are there other companies working on PCM development that is worth mentioning?
