Fujitsu is planning to mass produce its first NRAM in 2019. This nonvolatile memory uses carbon nanotubes, it's based on the Nantero NRAM DIMM design and it will be fabbed on a mature 55nm node. In its marketing presentation, Fujitsu claims the non-volatile NRAM has the potential to replace DRAM.
Fujitsu reminds us of the attractive qualities of NRAM:
NRAM uses carbon nanotube technology,
It offers faster write speeds,
And lower power consumption compared to rival tech.
NRAM is persistent, which is good for functionality and power saving,
These features will make it attractive in various applications such as big data, IoT Edge, authentication, networks and wireless.
NRAM can operate at high temperatures,
So it is good for automotive, industrial and IoT applications.
Will be interesting to see if it lives up to the hype, and how it compares to other tech like 3D XPoint.
