Panasonic Japan prepares to release ReRam Nonvolatile Memory with Microprocessor Evaluation Kit

Panasonic Japan has a press release out detailing the availability of a microprocessor kit for evaluation that integrates a reram nonvolatile memory chip with a microcomputer. Are transputers back? Panasonic hopes to make the starter kits available for evaluation by May. They will “[…] make a direct connection to the USB port of your PC, […]

Programmable Nanocircuits Advance

Things are heating up in the nanoscale programmable logic circuit “circuit”… A paper submitted to Nature last August has been published this month detailing further advances into the “transputer” programmable logic grail, this time fabricated utilizing ge/si based FET nanowires. The researchers were able to reprogram a so constructed logic tile and implement multiplexer, demultiplexer, […]

This Week, in Memory

As spice modeling for memristive circuits matures and begins to show the possible scope of theoretical applications, and Apple pushes towards SSD adoption, and Sandisk flash memory conquers investor outlooks, and memcapacitance mutators are successfully modeled, and flexible graphene oxides move towards experimental reram fabrication, and spin computing gets its own graphene boost, it may […]

Processor In Memory: Return of the Transputer

The Memristor has recently brought about a lookback at early Processor In Memory attempts, one of which was the Transputer. INMOS, a UK semiconductor company from the early 1980’s, (later the familiar ST Electronics, NYSE:STM) invested heavily in concurrent computing microprocessor design, which, while missing the target on a viable “Plastic Pal who’s Fun to […]
