STT-MRAM also has potential to address technology scaling roadmap challenges of volatile memory such as Dynamic RAM (DRAM) and hence can greatly enhance the performance for many volatile memory applications as well.
Volatile memory refers to random access memory (RAM), which stores data in such a way that it can be read and written rapidly but loses it when the power is switched off.
DiskOnChip-based MCP will provide stacked dies of non-volatile memory (NVM) and volatile memory components, including M-Systems' Mobile DiskOnChip, NOR Flash, SRAM and SDRAM or PSRAM.
