IBM Scientists Discover New Molecular Technique to Charge Memory Chips

Published on March 21, 2013, in Future Flash.

As we are reaching the end of the geometry road for NAND Flash memory manufacturing technology, we need new materials beyond silicon to keep the power draw down in chips as their performance goes up. It may keep future circuitry extra-lean through a new technique that puts a metal oxide in silicon’s place and allows for non-volatile memory.
