NRAM Makes Significant Progress

  1. Nov 8, 2012 #1
    Just as HP announces they can place 2gb of memristors on any chip and the corsortium of manufactures makes progress with creating a new hybrid memory cube standard this new development caught me unprepared from out of left field. A company named Nantero claims to have made serious progress with a form of nonvolatile nanotube memory. In their own words their goal is:

    "to deliver a product that will replace all existing forms of memory, such as DRAM, SRAM and flash memory, with NRAM serving as universal memory."

    These are one nanometer thick nanotubes as conductive as copper, hard as diamond, stronger than steel, and incredibly heat resistant with write speeds already down to 3ns and over one trillion cycles tested suggesting unlimited endurance. Memristors or some other type of phase change memory is likely to make it to market first, but these are 4 times smaller with unlimited cycles and already significantly faster. How they work is unique and interesting from a physics point of view:
