Making Unforgettable MRAM Memory with OpenPOWER

By Adam McPadden, Lead Engineer, Burlington Systems Lab, IBM

One of the key tenets of the OpenPOWER Foundation’s collaborative model is that having open systems and published interfaces allows people to create innovative architectures at all different areas of the system, including ones where there hasn’t been much change in decades like memory.

In validation of this approach, OpenPOWER members IBM, and Everspin have demonstrated a new way for OpenPOWER members to improve application performance with STT-MRAM on the memory bus of a POWER8 server.

GF Debuts 7nm, Embedded MRAM

by Rick Merritt, EE Times

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Globalfoundries announced plans for a 7nm FinFET process that can deliver chips with up to 30% more performance or 60% less power consumption than its current 14nm node. The process will be in production in late 2018, delivering gate pitches as small as 30nm initially using only today’s optical lithography.

Everspin to show world's fastest SSD

by Robin Harris for Storage Bits, August 4, 2016

Non-volatile RAM -- NVRAM for short -- is the Next Big Thing in digital storage. Everspin has announced that the industry's first Perpendicular Magnetic Tunnel Junction chip is now shipping. The company will demo the worlds's fastest SSD using it next week.

At the Flash Memory Summit, Everspin will demo what it bills as the world's fastest SSD, a single PCIe card capable of 1.5 million random 4k writes per second. Since most Flash SSD-based arrays can't manage 1 million reads per second, yeah, it's fast.

Everspin's MRAM shoots for the NVM crown

By Robin Harris for Storage Bits

While Intel/Micron have made quite a splash with their 3D XPoint non-volatile memory (NVM) they are not alone in bringing new NVM tech to market. Everspin is ramping MRAM, which has critical advantages over 3D XPoint.

Everspin, the magnetic random access memory (MRAM) company, is forging ahead. They started shipping product 10 years ago and now have over 500 customers, so this is real technology, not a slide deck.
