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.
Intel and Numonyx announced practical advancements they believe will make phase-change memory meet its performance and capacity promise.
The companies will develop phase-change random access memory, an advance for memory chips that will allow storage of high data volumes, according to the Korea Times.
Phase change memory could actually make its debut later this year. It's only taken decades to wring out the problems.
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.
Crossbreed a millipede and phase change and what do you get? This chip, which is expected to be released in 2010.
Over three decades ago, a Berkeley professor theorized that there should be a circuit that can remember what's happened to it. Now, HP is demonstrating it actually exists.
In experiment, information scoots up and down a wire because of magnetic pulses. In a decade that could mean cell phones that can hold the contents of entire libraries.
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.
NAND technology is crushing the competition. Now the bad news: it's going to become much harder to continue to improve NAND chips.
