Everspin to start sampling ST-MRAM chips soon

Update: this is now official, Everspin's EMD3D064M is the world's first ST-MRAM chip, will ship in 2013

We just got word that Everspin will soon announce their first ST-MRAM product. From what we hear, the 64-Mbit chip is already sampling and clients are already evaluation it. Everspin is targeting the enterprise SSD market. Everspin's ST-MRAM chips will feature non-volatility, low latency and increased reliability.

If this is true, this is a very exciting moment for the MRAM industry, as many believe that Spin-Torque (ST-MRAM) technology will finally enable MRAM to reach high densities, lower prices and mass market adoption.

Back in October 2011 Everspin announced that they are on track to release the first ST-MRAM chips in 2012, it's great to see that they were able to achieve that target. Everspin is currently mass producing toggle-MRAM chips. The highest capacity is currently 16Mbit.
