Crossbar Startup Develops RRAM High Density Memory Device

Over at MIT Technology Review, Tom Simonite writes that a new technology called crossbar RRAM memory can store 40x more data as the most compact memory available today with the added benefit of being significantly more energy efficient than both flash and DRAM.

It will be much denser and faster than flash because it is not based on moving electrons around or on transistors,” says Wei Lu, a professor at the University of Michigan whose research led to the development of crossbar memory.

According to the Crossbar Startup, their RRAM-based memory technology can scale up to 1 terabyte and can be incorporated into the back-end-of-line of any standard CMOS manufacturing fab.
