January 12th, 2006
For years the semiconductor industry has searched in vain for a “universal” memory technology that can retain data without a constant power supply and is fast, cheap and dense enough to replace the multiple technologies such as DRAM, SRAM and Flash now supplying the nearly US$50 billion ($65 billion) memory market.
Nantero is developing another promising technology that stores data by using carbon nanotubes. Nantero CEO Greg Schmergel calls nanotube memory “a technology with no fundamental physical limits” that could ultimately become a true one-size-fits-all memory chip.
