I don't think anyone can get around the speed-density tradeoff. That's the trouble with dense arrays.

Resistion, I recall from you many previous posts on this subject that you have a wealth of facts in your head. So here is an unreasonable, simple minded question... How many shrinks will it take PCM assuming 90nm is the current state of affairs in order to reach densities on par with today's flash?

The 90nm PCMs are two years old and Micron and several other research organizations have 45 nm in various stages of development, but to rival flash they'll need to get below 22 nm.

Samsung showed 20 nm PCM at IEDM 2011 with substantial thermal crosstalk.

IBM has been achieving industry-leading density and performance (speed) in our current high-end Flash product portfolio. If you would like to read some published papers please email me at cia at zurich.ibm.com
