Was always curious why didn't Elpida develop an STT-MRAM instead of the ReRAM they claimed as intended to replace DRAM?

i don't know about anyone else but im getting tired of "this new thing" just around the corner, only one more YEAR to go and then.... forever i dont care what's available in years from now, i could be dead by then.... make something i want to actually buy, advertise it and sell it to me NOW, whatever that might be.

We have a comparable situation on our urban lake. A clutch of ducks from a mating between a domestic duck and a mallard has resulted in a dozen ducks with colors ranging from white to full-male-mallard. The walking and quacking are not different.

Unity Semiconductor had published a 64 Mb prototype oxide-based resistance memory back in 2010.

The merger appears to be more likely: "Elpida merger talks in final stage / Combined firm could have 2nd-largest share of DRAM chip market The Yomiuri Shimbun (Jan. 25, 2012)" http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/business/T120124005436.htm From a 2010 article on Bright Side it appears that this Elpida project involving Sharp is likely a thin-film device. The resistive mechanism being exploited is still not being explained. This is the brouhaha bubbling every which way: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4234678/Memristor-brouhaha-bubbles-under#

It needs some time to replace DRAM with RRAM or other emerging memory technology.

Is Elpida suggesting time for everyone to get out of DRAM and into ReRAM? http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2012/1/25/elpida-announces-resistance-ram-prototype-end-of-road-for-nand-flash.aspx

Elpida is panicking, they also announced work on charge trap flash previously with spansion. I doubt they will want to exit the DRAM game, to focus solely on ReRAM or flash. Whatever happened to their 4F^2 DRAM cell, I thought that would bring more interest and confidence in Elpida. At this point, will Micron seriously let Elpida take the driver's seat?
