Non-volatile Flash Memory alternatives: FRAM, PRAM and MRAM
World's most widely used non-volatile memory Flash memory is limited by performance such as data-access-speed, bit-access, and data retention life. The research trend now in memory technology is to find a single memory for both temporary storage and permanent storage in personal computers as well as embedded systems. Research trend now in memory is unification of memory, so that there should be no separate SRAM, DRAM and flash, it's going to be just one memory. In this article we are going to provide what are the commercial devices already available, which can replace flash memory and other semiconductor material silicon based memory.
This article provides details of non-volatile components and the IC chips that are available in the market today. Some of these devices hold content without power (non-volatile), but has the speed and random access capability of DRAMs/SRAMs
