Replacement for Flash Memory

Today flash memories or thumb drives are commonly used as devices that store information even without power—nonvolatile memory. However, physicists and researchers are of the opinion that flash memory is nearing the end of its size and performance limits. Therefore, the computer industry is in search of a replacement for flash memory. For instance, the National Institute of Technology (NIST) conducted research is suggesting resistive random access memory (RRAM) as a worthy successor for the next Read more [...]

What is 3D Flash Memory?

Slowly, but steadily, the memory market is veering away from magnetic disc storage systems to solid-state drives or SSDs. Not only are prices falling fast, manufacturers are producing SSDs with improved technologies, leading to denser memories, higher reliability and lower costs. For example, Samsung has recently announced SSD and systems designs that will drive their new 3-D NAND into mass markets. Samsung's latest SSDs are the 850 EVO series. According to Jim Eliot, a marketing executive for Read more [...]
