MRAM takes another step closer to the real world

The quest for faster storage continues, with Everspin releasing samples of its magnetic random access memory that it hopes to use to usurp DRAM. MRAM chips are only available in 64 Mb and are expensive, but Everspin says it can scale up.

Everspin takes MRAM to Dell, LSI and beyond

Everspin, the spin-out of Freescale Semiconductor attempting to make magnetic random access memory work, said it had shipped 4 million MRAM devices in 2011 and that Dell and LSI use its products. It also has a plan to take on the giant DRAM market.
