Image Removed
In a paper at the VLSI meeting in Hawaii, Professor Ken Takeuchi described using an ReRAM buffer with an SSD. He points to some major performance gains that one can expect from such a configuration in terms of energy, speed and lifetime. Is this an opportunity for ReRAM that could spur development of the technology? … Read More
