ARM Sizes Up Moore's Law – Views MRAM positively for future scaling

Rick Merrit, Silicon Valley Bureau Chief for EE Times, reports on the keynote by Greg Yeric of ARM Research at the annual International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) in Washington D.C. 

Acording to Yeric, "The physical nature of resistive RAM and Phase Change Memory will most likely limit both density and endurance to below requirements for main memory,” he wrote. “If MRAM power and cost improve, its superior endurance makes it a potential candidate to enable memory as compute..."

Inside The MRAM

Mark Lapedus from Semiconductor Engineering interviews Everspin's president and CEO, Phillip LoPresti

Today, the industry is shipping various next-generation memory types, such as 3D NAND, MRAM and ReRAM. In fact, MRAM has been shipping for some time. To get a handle on MRAM, Semiconductor Engineering sat down to discuss the technology with Phillip LoPresti, president and chief executive of Everspin, a supplier of MRAMs.

Memory Hierarchy Shakeup

Semiconductor Engineering, by Mark Lapedus.  

Gaps in the memory hierarchy have created openings for new types of memory, and there is no shortage of possibilities.

The next big thing is a second-generation MRAM technology called spin-transfer torque MRAM (STT-MRAM). STT-MRAM is an effect in which the orientation of a magnetic layer in a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) can be modified using a spin-polarized current.

MRAM Hits Flash Arrays in M.2 Module

TORONTO — Everspin Technologies Inc. (Chandler, Ariz.) built its business as a magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) company through industrial and automotive applications, but it’s always been looking at broader applications for both its MRAM and Spin-Torque MRAM (ST-MRAM), particularly for applications that require data persistence and integrity, low latency, and security.

Now its MRAM has found its way into the M.2 form factor as part of Aupera Technologies' (Vancouver, BC) All Flash Array. The AupM001 is an M.2 MRAM module designed with Everspin’s EMD3D064M ST-MRAM. Its initial capacity is 32 MB, with higher capacities becoming available soon, said Everspin president and CEO Phill LoPresti in a telephone interview with EE Times. “We feel this is right in the sweet spot we targeted the products for when we started development."
