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.
The chipmaker and ST come up with phase change memory that can hold more than one bit per cell--but it's still not out.
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.
Intel and Numonyx announced practical advancements they believe will make phase-change memory meet its performance and capacity promise.
