Flash, despite its vast success, is hardly an ideal storage medium - for one thing it gets slower and more fragile as it shrinks - so many expect resistance RAM - ReRAM - to win long term. Crossbar announces the first ReRAM that could replace flash.
Crossbar, a start up in California, announced today their resistance RAM or ReRAM product. Their nonvolatile memory technology promises several advances:
• Up to 1 TB of storage on a single chip
• Simple 3-D stacking for multiple terabytes
• Very low-power that helps extend battery life
• 20x faster writes than NAND flash
• Low-cost manufacturability - CMOS compatible process
• Half the dice size of current flash
