From FRAM to CeRAM?

Is this the same Symetrix now promoting CeRAM? So they gave up their FRAM "day job"?

Some foundries (can't mention but guess) don't want to depreciate their embedded flash IP so soon.

And don't forget anti-fuse based one-time and few-time programmble memories. Actually FRAM is only slightly younger than phase-chnage memmory and precedes MRAM and ReRAM by a considerable time. Ramtron was founded in 1984 in Colorado Springs, Colorado and I was in the audience at the ISSCC at the unveiling of a prototype FRAM device in 1988. Symetrix Corp. was founded in 1986 by Carlos Paz de Araujo, also in Colorado Springs. So we could ask why has it taken so long to offer FRAM as an embeddede memory option?

After MRAM, Resistive RAM and now FRAM. It seems to be the momentum for alternatives to Nor Flash in the embedded world.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
