Self-taught scientist is credited with inventing the nickel-metal hybrid battery as well as a new class of semiconductors.
Phase-change memory chips (ovonics) have been a long time in the works. With the help of Intel and STMicroelectronics, their time may be soon.
Big Blue finds a way to double the data that a cell of phase-change memory can store for a long time. It expects the new memory technology in servers in 2016.
Magnets in a chip. That's the idea from Grandis, whose Spin-Transfer Torque RAM chips are set to hit the market late next year.
Phase change memory could actually make its debut later this year. It's only taken decades to wring out the problems.
Intel and Numonyx announced practical advancements they believe will make phase-change memory meet its performance and capacity promise.
