Micron Has Phase Change Memory in Volume Production
Micron said it is the first memory maker to have started volume production of phase change memory (PCM).
According to Micron, PCM enables faster boot times and overall improved performance, while providing high reliability and "very low" power consumption at the same time.
"Our commitment to innovation and continued development of advanced products to address the voracious demands of the wireless industry is clear and strong," said Tom Eby, Vice President of the Wireless Solutions Group at Micron. "We are determined to evolve and innovate by continuing to offer the best-tailored solutions for both today's and tomorrow's market requirements." Micron's PCM can be integrated via a system's LPDDR2 interface.
At this time the PCM is only suited for use in feature phones, while Micron believes that the technology will make its way into smartphones and tablets in the future.
