More than 20 tech companies focus on joint MRAM development

More than twenty American and Japanese semiconductor manufacturers, including Renesas and Micron have joined forces beaten to stimulate the development of MRAM and phase it out. Dram in time In 2017, a joint production technology must be a fact.

Among the twenty companies are manufacturers Renesas such as memory and Micron also Hitachi, Tokyo Electron, which makes equipment for chip and wafer maker Shin-Etsu Chemical. The partnership will also try to persuade you to join. European Companies

Component includes a project to work extra researchers at Tohoku University in Japan MRAM writes the Japanese newspaper Nikkei. Manufacturers strive to obtain consensus and to worry about the material used for MRAM, the production specifications and manufacturing methods. Appointments In March 2017, the agreement on the technology to be around. Micron hopes to start. Mass production a year later

MRAM or magnetoresistive random access memory is widely seen as the successor of dram, but also SRAM and flash memory. The memory type is more efficient, faster and less prone to wear than current memory technologies.

Magnetoresistive memory is built up of two layers of magnetic material, wherein the first layer does not change and the second layer is influenced. Data is read by current through. Magnetic bilayer When both layers have the same magnetic polarization, the resistance which this stream are experiencing low, which corresponds to a binary 1 will, when the magnetic particles have an opposite polarization, then the resistance is high and a binary 0 to be recorded.
