Image RemovedEach year the Sunday before IEDM two short courses are offered. This year I attended Memory Technologies for Future Systems held on Sunday, December 6[SUP]th[/SUP]. I have been to several of these short courses over the years and they are a great way to keep up to date on the latest technology.… Read More


Patenting in the (Resistive Memory) Material World

Patenting in the (Resistive Memory) Material World
by Christie Marrian on 02-14-2013 at 8:10 pm

Image Removed(with apologies to George Harrison) Two recent Blogs over at ReRAM-Forum.com have focused on the latest in the IP field, particularly as it affects resistive memory. A high level overview of who is patenting what suggests a healthy amount of R&D is going on in the field. But looking a little deeper suggests there… Read More


Adesto Acquisition of Atmel Serial Flash: Strange Bedfellows?

Adesto Acquisition of Atmel Serial Flash: Strange Bedfellows?
by Ed McKernan on 11-14-2012 at 1:00 pm

Image RemovedOn October 1, Adesto Technologies announced that it had acquired Atmel’s DataFlash and Serial Flash business groups. At first sight, this seemed a rather counter intuitive move for one of the most aggressive (and visible) companies in the emerging memory field. The purchase raised many questions to those, not least… Read More

Image Removed
The recent (August) flash memory summit in Santa Clara had a session devoted to ReRAM as well as featuring prominently in the keynote address by Sung Wook Park of SK Hynix. The talk includes a summary of NAND’s well known scaling issues along with approaches to 3D NAND. It turns out that they are working on three different… Read More

ReRAM/CBRAM at the 2012 IEDM Conference
by Ed McKernan on 10-02-2012 at 8:10 pm

Image Removed
Time flies! IEDM time is coming up again (this year on the left coast) and the conference program is now on-line. Lots of interest to the ReRAM/CBRAM community. While some trends are emerging (Hafnium Oxide appears to be the material of choice) there are still plenty of other more contentious issues. ReRAM/CBRAM has… Read More


Micron ReRAM Patent Alert

Micron ReRAM Patent Alert
by Ed McKernan on 09-11-2012 at 3:16 pm

Image Removed
Micron recently was awarded patents related to ReRAM. As everyone knows, patents are the lifeblood of technology based industries and the memory business is no different. But what can you learn from a patent? In the first of a series of Blogs, Christie Marrian moderator of the ReRAM-Forum asks that question in the … Read More


What’s Next For Emerging Memories

What’s Next For Emerging Memories
by Ed McKernan on 08-17-2012 at 11:00 am

Image RemovedIn doing some digging in preparation for the start of www.ReRAM-Forum.com Christie Marrian asks if ReRAM.CBRAM technology is approaching a ‘tipping point’ relative to NAND Flash. You can read more of his analysis over at the blog he moderates (ReRAM-Forum.com). Also a note to readers. The blog is interested in collecting… Read More
