GLOBALFOUNDRIES Launches Embedded MRAM on 22FDX® Platform

High-performance embedded non-volatile memory solution is ideally suited for emerging applications in advanced IoT and automotive

Santa Clara, Calif., September 15, 2016 – GLOBALFOUNDRIES today introduced a scalable, embedded magnetoresistive non-volatile memory technology (eMRAM) on its 22FDX platform, providing system designers with access to 1,000x faster write speeds and 1,000x more endurance than today’s non-volatile memory (NVM) offerings. 22FDX eMRAM also features the ability to retain data through 260°C solder reflow, industrial temperature operation, while maintaining an industry-leading eMRAM bitcell size.

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.

Everspin Aims MRAM at SSD Storage Tiers

by Gary Hilson, EE Times, Designlines

TORONTO – MRAM pioneer Everspin Technologies Inc. is continuing its efforts to expand the applications for its non-volatile memory by displacing DRAM as a persistent memory in enterprise storage applications.

In a telephone interview with EE Times, Everspin CEO Phill LoPresti said storage and servers OEMs have been evaluating its ST-MRAM products, and the company will deliver further density increases for its MRAM-based storage class memory (SCM) and expects to sample a 1Gb product based on its proprietary perpendicular magnetic tunnel junction (pMTJ) ST-MRAM later this year.
