Memory, the behind the scenes star of a high-tech world is about to experience a revolution. The first volley was fired this week when Everspin Technologies announced the availability of their first DDR3 ST-MRAM chip, the EMD3D064M magnetic memory chip.
The new DDR3 ST-MRAM chips combine the speed of DDR3 RAM with the non-volatile nature of NAND flash ST-MRAM. These two qualities provide the potential to unify the memory sub-systems used by today’s gadgets. Blurring the lines between installed and running applications, both becoming the same.
Magnetic memory this fast also opens the interest possibility of a truly always on computer, instant on and off with the hard drive and RAM unified. Many things have to change before that day but it is an interesting possibility none the less.

Micron, memory makers of the silicon kind have released a revolution into the memory market, Glass. In the race to get the latest technology to market there can be only one winner, this time Micron gets the prize. While many have demonstrate PCM or Phase Change Memory technology Micron is the first to release a real, working PCM product.
PCM is a brand new technology that has been trying to burst onto the scene for the last decade, with research going back nearly 50 years. IBM and HP have recently demonstrated the technology but Micron beat both giants to the prize.
“Our commitment to innovation and continued development of advanced products to address the voracious demands of the wireless industry is clear and strong,” said Tom Eby, Vice President of the Wireless Solutions Group at Micron. “We are determined to evolve and innovate by continuing to offer the best-tailored solutions for both today’s and tomorrow’s market requirements.”
