Researchers demonstrate the world's first flexible MRAM memory device

Jul 20, 2016

As flexible OLED displays are entering the market, researchers and developers around the world are aiming to introduce other flexible components - required to make truly flexible/bendable devices. We already have flexible batteries, and now researchers from Singapore demonstrated the world's first flexible MRAM memory device.

MRAM (Magnetic RAM) is a next-gen spintronics memory device that is non-volatile, efficient and fast. Future MRAM device may offer high-density memory too, but current MRAM chips are limited in capacity. Freescale spin-off Everspin is already producing 64Mbit MRAM chips commercially - and 256Mb and 1Gb chips are expected soon.
