Everspin announces production of the first MRAM with a Quad SPI interface

The MR10Q010 1Mb Quad SPI MRAM runs at 104MHz, offering the fastest non-volatile write speeds in the industry and is now available in both SOIC and BGA packages.
Chandler, AZ, Feb 22, 2016 - Everspin has announced production availability of the world’s fastest non-volatile memory with a Quad SPI interface, the MR10Q010, 1Mb QSPI MRAM. This high performance device can read and write data at 104MHz without the write delays encountered in other non-volatile technology such as NOR Flash. Combined with limitless write cycle endurance, the MR10Q010 is ideal for applications that require continuous recording of critical system data with the added benefit of protection of the data in the event of unexpected power loss, without the need for batteries or capacitors. Applications such as enterprise RAID controllers can take advantage of these features to enhance the reliability of mission critical data storage systems by using the MR10Q010 as a journal memory that records continuously updated system metadata.

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..."

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.
