This memory is going to be the next replacement of flash based memory,it has high Read/Write cycles can be made much smaller than flash based memories…and has a much more life than its flash counter parts.
Main features of this upcoming memory technology:
* Uses 90 nanometer technology.
* 100 million write cycles.
* data storage and retention abilities of greater than 10 years
Recent research:IBM demonstrated the prototype of the
Phase change memory which is 500 times faster than the
