STT-MRAM is the second generation MRAM technology, and it seems that most companies are focused on STT-MRAM (rather than Toggle MRAM) in their MRAM development efforts. Check out our new article that gives an introduction to STT-MRAM and the current market status.
We are happy to invite all our readers to follow the new MRAM-Info LinkedIn company page. LinkedIn is a great place to meet and find new professionals. If you follow the new company page, you will get MRAM updates directly to your feed, and also be able to connect to other MRAM professionals.
In addition to the company page, we have also setup a new MRAM interest group - which will hopefully become a new forum for discussions and an exchange of knowledge, news and opinions. All focused on MRAM, of course. Join our new group now!
MRAM-Info has been providing objective and up-to-date MRAM market news, as well as in-depth articles and commentary for over 10 years. We are now happy to offer the opportunity to embed our MRAM news directly in your web site, at no cost.
If you're looking to enrich the experience of your web site visitors, our market news can grant them a glimpse into MRAM technology, news and market status.
Here's an example widget, showing how this can look in your site:
MRAM-Info has been focused on MRAM technologies for over 10 years, and the technology has advanced a lot since then, with over 60 million chips produced and growing densities. A new memory technology is now starting to enter the market as well - RRAM, or Resistive RAM, which is based on memristors, materials that change their resistance.
RRAM is promising storage-memory candidate, and we are happy to announce the launch of a new site dedicated to this technology, RRAM-Info.com. We will post daily news, commentary and updates about RRAM memory technologies. This is certainly a technology that all memory professionals should be aware of! You can subscribe to our weekly RRAM newsletter here - and if you have not done so already, be sure to also signup for our free MRAM newsletter!
Today we're happy to finally finish the re-design effort we started in November last year, and MRAM-Info now has a new logo and background, to complement the new responsive design. We like it a lot, we hope you do too! :-)
Here's for a happy 2016, one with exciting and positive MRAM news!
2015 is pretty much over - and this has been another year of slow growth for the MRAM industry. Here are the top 10 stories posted on MRAM-Info in 2015, ranked by popularity (i.e. how many people read the story):
- Toshiba shows a new STT-MRAM test chip that consumes about 80% less power than SRAM memory (Mar 7)

Today we launched MRAM-Info's new design. The changes are not dramatic, but we changed some of the menu system, made the site (hopefully) cleaner and more modern. Most importantly, this design is now mobile-friendly and should prove easier to read on smartphones.
We hope this design will make the site nicer and easier to read, we'll be happy to hear your thoughts and comments!
Back in June 2013 Samsung Electronics launched a global research outreach program aimed towards STT-MRAM innovation. The Samsung Global MRAM Innovation (SGMI) wanted wanted to reach out to colleges, universities and research labs from all over the world to explore breakthrough and innovative STT-MRAM research.
Samsung ran a short ad campaign on MRAM-Info and Spintronics-Info to help discover partners. Samsung informed us that they received lots of best and most novel proposals on a range of compelling research subjects. They are now collaborating with 15 SGMI partners. Hopefully we'll someday hear of the advances made through these collaborations.
I'm happy to announce that MRAM-Info's infrastructure was updated today. MRAM-Info is based on the open-source Drupal CMS, and we updated from version 6 to version 7. As a reader you will not find many differences, but hopefully it will enable a more stable, safe and quick web site.
If you do find any bugs or glitches, please let us know.
