Flashy Solutions: New Tech From The Flash Memory Summit

By Joseph F. Kovar, CRN. Everspin, of Chandler, Ariz., moved to shake up the memory market when it demonstrated what it called the world's first commercially-available Spin Torque MRAM (ST-MRAM). Unlike conventional memory, where electrons are moved in a circuit to indicate a bit value of 0 or 1, ST-MRAM adjusts the actual spin of the electrons to increase performance while remain non-volatile. Everspin worked with Altera and Mobiveil to demonstrate a PCIe-based storage system featuring low latency and high endurance, and with SMART Modular Technologies to demonstrate DDR3 non-volatile DIMM using ST-MRAM.
