+ - Could MRAM ultimately replace DRAM?->

Submitted by

angry tapir writes "A new form of nonvolatile MRAM memory with the promise to eventually replace DRAM is slowly making its way into products. Everspin says its MRAM (magnetoresistive random access memory) is trickling into products that require reliable, fast non-volatile memory that can preserve data in the event of a power failure. MRAM has been under development for decades, and Toshiba and Hynix last year committed to developing the new memory type to ultimately replace DRAM and NAND flash. MRAM operates just like standard memory, but uses magnetic properties to store data instead of storing a charge on a capacitor as with DRAM."
