Numonyx reveals Phase Change Memory [PCM] devices
Earlier this week Dutch manufacturer Numonyx BV - a joint venture between chip giant Intel Corp. and ST Microelectronics - have revealed their first series of Phase Change Memory devices. Phase Change Memory [or more commonly referred to as PCM, PRAM, PCRAM or C-RAM] could significantly increase performance and endurance for consumer electronics, PCs and other embedded applications.
Phase Change Memory is a type of non-volatile memory technology - similar to NAND Flash circtuits - that uses the physical behavior of chalcogenide glass to switch between crystalline and amorphous states, and is capable of retaining data even when not powered. PCM chips work well for both executing code and storing large amounts of data, giving it a superset of the capabilities of both flash memory and dynamic random access memory.
