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 wanted to share some in-depth insight on PCM and the reasons why Micron is supporting this technology. Greg Atwood, Micron senior fellow and resident PCM expert, has authored a paper on “The Evolution of Phase Change Memory
,” which offers some interesting technical perspective on the product, its benefits, and future potential.
