A new type of super-fast memory is on the cards, thanks to the creation of the first purely silicon oxide-based Resistive RAM memory chip that can operate in ambient conditions.
HP has worked up quite a reputation for being the king of drama over the last several years. However, this week the company shifted the drama where it belongs: with the products.
Hewlett Packard (HP) and Hynix are teaming up to promote the use of ReRAM in future electronic devices. The next-generation chip - which is based on memristor technology - could eventually replace flash memory used in today's mobile phones and MP3 players.
A recent discovery by a team of Hewlett Packard researchers could eventually help redefine the capabilities, speed and capacity of conventional memory.
