Everspin's perpendicular magnetic tunnel junction (pMTJ) based ST-MRAM

Everspin's new gig: a gig or two of non-volatile RAM on PCIe

Non-volatile memory outfit Everspin's popped some of its Spin Torque MRAM onto a PCIe card in the hope system builders get excited about a new tier of memory. Or is it a new tier of storage? The first of the new “nvNITRO E” range will be a half-height, half-length PCIe card that can operate as an NVMe solid state disk, or as …

Everspin's Friday IPO goes pop: Moderate amount of champagne all 'round

Everspin has spun out its IPO; it offered 5 million shares at an estimated $8 a pop to rake in an estimated $40m, with shares starting trading on Friday October 7, opening at $9.10 and currently trading at $8.02. Not a disaster then. The magneto-resistive RAM startup has pulled in total funding of $80.3m since it was founded …

Magneto-resistant upstart Everspin gets itself into an IPO whizz

MRAM startup Everspin has filed for an IPO. Everspin_ST-MRAM_die Everspin MRAM die Magneto-resistive or Magnetic Random-Access Memory (MRAM) is non-volatile RAM that’s faster than NAND; think of it roughly as XPoint-class stuff. It’s been used by server and system vendors for niche needs requiring very fast and non- …

Non-volatile MRAM coming to servers in early 2017

Non-volatile RAM outfit Everspin says it's almost ready to ship non-volatile 256-megabit DDR3 chips and expects they'll soon find a home in your next server or array. 256 megabits is just 32 megabytes, which doesn't sound worthy of a DIMM slot even if, as Everspin claims, its kit can sustain writes 100,000 times faster than is …

US and Japanese chip firms team up on MRAM project

A group of over 20 Japanese and US chip companies are joining forces to develop a way to mass produce new low power memory chips that operate ten times faster than DRAM. Firms including Micron Technology – the world’s number two DRAM producer – Renesas, Hitachi and Tokyo Electron will send experts to Tohoku university to begin …

Dell and LSI now sporting impressive new set of MRAMs

Dell and LSI are using a new type of memory in servers, RAID controllers and routers, presaging the replacement of NAND flash. It is a form of non-volatile memory called MRAM for Magnetic RAM. MRAM has been in development for some time and is now being used for journal memory functions by Dell and LSI, according to Everspin …

IBM attracts Crocus to magnetic RAM biz

IBM has drafted in Crocus Technology in hope of blossoming its long-running MRAM flash follow-on technology effort. Where this leaves Big Blue's racetrack memory effort is unclear. Crocus Technology is a developer of magnetoresistive memory and has devised a thermally-assisted Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU), which caught IBM's eye …

NEC fumbles towards MRAM flip-flop

NEC has made more progress in its development of a flip-flop switch for system-on-chips that offers near zero electricity use in standby states by using magnetic RAM technology. Magnetic RAM uses the direction of a magnetic field in a memory cell to indicate a binary one or zero, and is one of the candidates posited to succeed …

CMOx shows its face in flash race

Heard of CMOx? Here we are in the midst of a rush towards NAND flash replacing fast hard drives and successor technologies are already jostling for prominence. Unity Semiconductor came out of stealth last month and has unveiled its CMOx technology with claimed technology advantages over NAND and manufacturing advantages over …

NEC breakthrough paves way for powerless standy-by modes

NEC has announced the development of a memory circuit element that, it claims, will allow chips to consume no power when they're put in stand-by mode. The circuit component is a non-volatile magnetic flip-flop (MFF) - not a reference to cheap footwear but to a transistor-based circuit of the type assembled by schoolboys to …
