Since Toshiba doesn't make DRAM (or want to play in that market either) and it is highly unlikely for MRAM to replace NAND or HDD, I wonder if Toshiba (and Hynix) are striving to create a new application for MRAM. It seems hard to do without a customer, or when most customers are accustomed to just Flash and DRAM.

Yes, and some smartphones with built-in compass or magnetic strap holders pose this problem.

If it goes all the mobile devices using MRAM needs to be given special protection against magnetic fields. Otherwise they will loose their data in the vicinity of the strong magnetic field.

They're trying to distinguish a subtle difference of two different tunneling barriers. That will be hard to do as you scale down since tunneling is still a random process.

Will perpendicular MJT have better scaling characteristics than other approaches? Can it be implemented with multiple layers and multiple bits per cell? These are the types of things I'd be interested in reading about.

If it offers an order of magnitude improvement in speed and power consumption at reasonable density levels, things could change quickly with the economies of scale of the mobile market.

Technology, materials, process knowledge improves over time and a revival of MRAM technology (more than current suppliers) with spin-transfer torque magneto-resistance would be welcomed in the market. But let's give the DRAM and Flash technology a big applause since these two technologies have carried the ball for many years.

Hynix has considered MRAM as potential nonvolatile DRAM. But MRAM has been around for a while. I think it's considered too costly compared to DRAM, but would have thought many would consider worth it.

@pixies Everspin (www.everspin.com) has got a product line card that goes from 256-kbit up to 16-Mbit.

People have been talking about and working on MRAMs for almost 20 years, where are the products?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
