I was just saying they only got a license from you guys, according to the announcement. How is it guaranteed to work?

Gary Bronner at Rambus told me in our phone interview that Tezzaron was in fact its first commercial customer for its ReRAM technology; I specifically asked.

Our team at Rambus published results of a working 256kb RRAM chip at IEDM 2014. You can find the paper at http://bit.ly/RRAM_IEDM14_Paper and slides of the talk are available at http://bit.ly/RRAM_IEDM14_Slides

I doubt users or makers of DRAM or Flash will seek to replace them with ReRAM, but they may try to fill gaps left by these mainstream technologies by using a technology like ReRAM.

I thnk they're just licensing CMOx, not really shown how to make it work?

There are other players in this field such as Adesto and its foundry partner Altis Semiconductor who already announced products a while ago.

It's never really said, but there's certainly an undertone here of "extremely expensive".  Sure, the military and aerospace guys can use exotic technologies, what's a little money to them?  But that sure doesn't scream semiconductor volume or significant DRAM or Flash replacements.

I think Rambus ReRAM is already licensed to Samsung, Micron, Hynix and Freescale. Tezzaron may not be the first customer.
