MRAM's main selling point is endurance, but that hasn't been enough to get a big market. DRAM still much cheaper. Or maybe the replacement cycle is too long?

MRAM is non-volatile memory. It is an alternative to Flash memory and potentially a replacement of Flash memory.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
