The main threat for the wide adoption of MRAM memories continues to be their lack of immunity to magnetic fields. MRAM magnetic immunity (MI) levels has seen significant research over the years and new data is continuously published from the main MRAM vendors.
This data, however, is rarely compared to magnetic field exposure scenarios… Read More

On the Sunday evening at IEDM last year, TechInsights held a reception in which Arabinda Das and Jeongdong Choe gave presentations that attracted a roomful of conference attendees.
This is the second part of the review of Jeongdong’s talk, we covered NAND flash technology in the last post. Jeongdong is a Senior Technical… Read More
An increasing percentage of SoC die area is being allocated to memory arrays, as applications require more data/instruction storage and boot firmware. Indeed, foundries invest considerable R&D resources into optimizing their array technology IP offerings, often with more aggressive device features than used for other… Read More
