I remember that piece, thanks. But what advantage toggle has over spin torque to stick with it is not clear.

My understanding is that it's first and foremost a question of different horses for different courses – toggle MRAM is best for some uses while ST-MRAM is best for others. I did a detailed write up on this work in early January reviewing operation, pros and cons, etc. You can find it at http://www.eetimes.com/design/memory-design/4404019/Tech-trends--Details-on-Everspin-s-ST-MRAM. Cheers, K

This should displace more FRAM. Buuuuuuut risky, If there will be a speaker designed near your MRAM. Speakers includes strong magnets inside. Will lose all your important data in MRAM... wow I still suggest FRAM solution more for non-volatile RAM needs. Many vendors also Fujitsu, TI, Cypress, Lapis, Panasonic...

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.
