Nanotechnology: Realizing the Promise of Universal Memory
Volume 2, Issue 3

Ben Schlatka, Nantero, Inc

Nanomaterials are likely to serve as the building blocks for future semiconductor devices. One of the first commercial impacts of nanotechnology on the semiconductor industry could be in the domain of memory. There are three commercially available families of memory: dynamic random access memory (DRAM), static random access memory (SRAM) and nonvolatile memory (Flash). Most consumer and business products use combinations of these three memory families, but there is a growing need for a universal memory that combines the positive attributes of each. In this article, Ben Schlatka examines the key trends and requirements that set the stage for a universal memory. He identifies several possible candidates for universal memory, engages in an in depth analysis of nanotube-based devices, and highlights markets where universal memory could have the greatest impact.
