"Paying Our Dues" Paid off with PCM

Paolo Cappelletti   |   January 21, 2013   |   All Products

"Paying Our Dues" Paid off with PCM

“I commend Micron for being able to put silicon down and show volume production of PCM. This blows naysayers away—of which I was one—and shows that the technology can work. It also drives home the lesson that you must pay your dues in terms of development and production time—including the ability to work around a variety of issues like thermal disturb—to achieve a good, production-ready, innovative design.”  - Alan Niebel, CEO of Web-Feet Research ...

PCM—Agent of Change for Future Architectures

Valentina Arrigoni   |   September 17, 2012   |   Memory

It’s no secret in the memory industry that existing technologies are running into scaling issues. As we all know, the problem is in the physics. But so is the solution, and that’s why we’re excited that The Economist’s Technology Quarterly took notice of phase change memory (PCM)—the emerging technology that the publication posits as being poised to “lead to a radical shift in computer design.” PCM’s bit-alterability, fast random reads, low power c...

PCM-based MCPs take cell phone performance to the next level

Brian Bradford   |   July 27, 2012   |   Memory

Phase change memory (PCM) in the mobile handset market is a game-changer because of its performance, software simplification, and reliability. Cell phones today have enabled NAND-based MCP solutions for read operations and random access capabilities; however, Micron’s PCM-based MCP solution will enable cell phone users to enjoy new experiences. “Instant-on” is becoming a reality thanks to the performance of Micron’s PCM and low-power double data rate mobile DRAM...

PCM Real-World Demo

Brian Bradford   |   September 26, 2011   |   Memory

By now, you’ve probably heard about phase change memory or PCM. PCM is an innovative new memory technology that blends the best attributes of EEPROM, NOR, NAND, and DRAM to deliver unprecedented features in one memory device. But how do PCM’s unique features translate to user experience? The video below shows how PCM’s nonvolatility, high endurance, fast program performance, and overwrite capability can eliminate the need for multiple memory types in a digital video camera...

Demonstrating Phase Change Memory

Brian Bradford   |   September 13, 2011   |   Memory

When we first talk to customers about phase change memory (PCM), we’re often asked two questions: how is PCM different, and why would I want to use it in my device? PCM is a radically different memory technology that records information via the shifting state (phase change) of a unique material. PCM is able to merge the attributes of NOR, NAND, and DRAM in a single, nonvolatile memory chip. This allows designers to consolidate their different memory solutions and reduce the bill of materia...

It's Time for the Flash Memory Summit!

Alyson Outen   |   August 10, 2011   |   Memory

I’m at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California where final preparations are underway on the tradeshow floor. We're a long-time participant in the Summit and are really excited for the opportunity to speak and meet with our partners and peers in the industry. On Tuesday, Micron’s Vice President of NAND Solutions Group, Glen Hawk,  gave a keynote address to an overflowing crowd of nearly 1,000 tech industry enthusiasts. In his speech on the “Alchemy of NAND Fla...

Is PCM the Next Big Memory Technology?

Ed Doller   |   August 10, 2010   |   Memory

Future Memory: What Will Replace DRAM? That’s the title for the panel I was asked to sit on at last week’s MemCon 2010 event. It may seem premature to think about replacing DRAM now (we still see several generations of DRAM development ahead with a long-term home in computing systems), until you think about HW and SW design cycles. Hardware platforms for 2015, 2016, and even 2017 are being developed right now. So we need to pick the best option that’s working today and start thinking about how w...

What’s the future for PCM?

  |   August 4, 2010   |   Memory

With the recent Numonyx acquisition, we’ve heard lots of questions about Micron’s commitment to phase change memory (PCM). Ed Doller, Vice President and Chief Memory Systems Architect, addressed some of these questions in a recent keynote at the MemCon conference in San Jose. His talk focused on PCM’s future as a viable, next-generation, nonvolatile memory and its position in the memory hierarchy. We’ll provide a video of his full presentation later this week on our blog. In the meantime, we wa...
