Neale this was a very nice analysis of the Sumsung paper. You mention that "Micron recently issued a statement that it has developed a new PCM process that it plans to deploy sometime this year". Is there more information on this anywhere?

Conroe-This was provided in the Micron Q2 2012 conference call for analysts to discuss earnings. Part of the quote that I have reads “….as well as our 20-nanometer DRAM node. We also made progress scaling up to 300-millimeter substrates on our 45-nanometer NOR process and in developing a new 300-millimeter phase-change memory process. Moving forward, we look to deploy both of these new 300-millimeter NOR and phase-change processes in the manufacturing fabs over the next year….” What would have been more interesting is to hear more on the type of PCM device (bit capacity etc.) they plan to use the process for and the timing for a fully qualified device. As IBM state they are reviewing seven technologies for the SKA perhaps a PCM device from Micron will be in that mix. In my original piece as submitted I characterized this as Micron’s much needed good news message, as the rest of the their news at the time was not so good. The reviewers and editor decided it was not part of my technical brief and did their job.

I am your fans and I like your article very much! This is really something that PCM guys should focus and solve. Recently, I kind of read that Hynix also published some paper showing 1GB PCM. Did you hear that? What do you think of it?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
