Good point @resistion, with non-volatile functionality NRAM is more like MRAM

@Kris, what is being bragged about for this memory is usually what is bragged about for MRAM (like speed and endurance) rather than for RRAM or ReRAM (low power, speed, endurance) so I wonder if its electrical specifications would be similar.

thank you Peter...make sense that it takes that long, material science is hard, typically takes 10-20 years for a new material to be implemented commercially...tough business, writing an app for iPhone is quicker ;-)...but if they make it work the payoff would be enormous...anyone from Nantero interested in giving a talk on this technology at emerging technologies event in Whistler in 2013? details at www.cmoset.com, Kris

Kris Please note the company has been ploughing this furrow since 2000. So while they may have been first , they have also been trying for a long time. They have also worked with a number of semiconductor partners including LSI and ON semi. When something doesn't emerge it suggest this technology is not coming to market easily. On the other hand IMEC executives give a somewhat glowing reference form the technology. Looks like one or more of the major semiconductor companies is interested (perhaps after losing interest in PCM) and is asking IMEC to do some expensive rendering of NRAM in silicon.

Impressive...this must be the first time Carbon nano-tubes are tried for memory...this could be an interesting alternative to resistive RAM

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
