Toshiba says MRAM is almost ready

Posted on Saturday, June 07 2008 @ 20:20:06 CEST by

Toshiba claims magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) is almost ready.
According to Toshiba, its work on magnetoresistive random-access memory is ready to bear fruit in the shape of postage stamp-sized 1 gigabit MRAM chips that are almost ready to replace the currently common DRAM [subscription link].

MRAM improves on DRAM by operating more quickly and holding data even when the power supply to it is turned off, meaning it uses only around 10 per cent as much electricity. Moreover, an MRAM-based computer would be able to boot up instantly.

Toshiba’s researchers have been able to overcome the vulnerability of MRAM to heat fluctuations by using a technique similar to that of IBM called spin-RAM, which manipulates the memory’s magnetic polarity using electric currents.
Toshiba expects MRAM will take over DRAM in the 2015 timeframe, that sounds like ages to us.
