Elpida enters reRam production fray: 30nm DRAM competitor by 2013

Elpida Memory Inc. has produced a ReRam [nonvolatile resistance memory, a DRAM/flash memory competitor] prototype on 50nm at a 64-Mbits capacity, with 10ns write cycles, and 1 million read-write endurance cycles. The substrate material is undisclosed: The prototype was jointly developed with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), a Japanese-funded public institution. […]

Memristor-based Nonvolatile Synchronous Flip-flop Latch Circuits (Journal of Nanotechnology)

The Nanotechnology Journal Volume 21, Number 23 is out online today with the short paper by Stan Williams et al submitted this last March that details more specifics about HP Labs early attempts at a nonvolatile, memristor based flip-flop latch circuit: We describe the implementation of a nonvolatile synchronous flip-flop circuit that uses a nanoscale […]

elLoka’s Home Computer (HC), a 5w, ultra low-power home computing device

elLoka, a design company in India is promoting the release of an ultra-small, low power, 5 watt “home computer”, claiming its the first such product to be completely designed and manufactured in India. First or not, 5 watts or not, its still a great push towards really, really thin client computing: the design looks like […]

Flexible Flash Memory on the horizon

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology has developed a form of memristor built on a flexible substrate, its being widely reported. The paper, titled A Flexible Solution-Processed Memristor, details the researchers at NIST were able create a 14 day window for the non-volatile memristive state: The Nist research team created the memristor using […]
