Research and Markets: Surveying the Field of Novel Computer Memory Devices That Are Being Enabled by New Technology and Materials Platforms
As Moore's Law continues to challenge the memory chip industry and there is a growing need for high-capacity low-power memories to support advanced mobile equipment, new memory technologies are increasingly in demand. This report surveys the field of novel computer memory devices that are being enabled by new technology and materials platforms. It examines the key drivers for the emerging alternatives to conventional DRAM, SRAM and Flash and reviews the commercial prospects for these alternatives. Near-to-medium term memory technologies covered include MRAM, FRAM, ovonic memory, nanotube memory, holographic memory, molecular memory, and scanning probe-based memories. The report also takes a look at longer-term memory solutions such as molectronics and single-electron memories. In addition, the report contains a table profiling approximately 30 players active in the new memory technology space and a forecast of advanced memory revenues broken out by application.
