So, alternative memories remaining expensive and low-density is a self-fulfilling prophecy of the market? Or are these technologies (like FRAM) truly viable?

Discrete SRAM market is a rapidly shrinking, even Samsung & NEC left the market, only GSI and Cypress are left. Cypress as company has issues, Ramtron is not a cure for this. Problems at company are large in scale around PSUC, PSUC is not a competitive product against fixed function MCU.

T.J Rodgers understands this market very well, I would not be surprised if he pulls off a sunpower with this deal.

I would definitely like to see memory technology like FRAM become more popular and cheaper. The benefits such as speed and EEPROM-like behavior such as byte-level modification but with orders of magnitude better endurance could greatly simplify applications that normally require wear-leveling and page-erase handling algorithms. Let's hope Cypress doesn't do anything to mess things up.

So true is said by @Michael Lorello...many would look for some better simplified applications and other better stuff!!
