Abstract:
Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c31317 ) has announced the addition of The Market For Nano-Enabled Memory and Storage - 2006 & Beyond to their offering.

Examine the Current State of the Market for Nanotube, Molecular & Polymer Memory

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on March 8th, 2007

This report covers the markets for FRAM, MRAM, ovonic memory, nanotube memory, molecular memory, polymer memory, holographic memory, MEMS-based memory systems and other memory technologies likely to be commercialized in the next decade.

The report identifies and quantifies the opportunities presented by these technologies and the timeframes in which they will emerge. The current state of the market for each of these technologies is identified are they in R&D, sampling, pilot production, full-scale production? as are the markets for these products are to be found. The report discusses which kinds of end product would use each of these technologies and in what context do they replace DRAM, SRAM, Flash, disk storage or some combination of these? Will they create entirely new products?

The role of key semiconductor companies and OEMs is also discussed, including the progress of some of the smaller firms active in this space. Particular attention is paid to how many of the competing nanomemory solutions can succeed and which ones they are most likely to be.

Topics Covered

Chapter One: Introduction

* 1.0 Background to Report
* 2.0 Objectives of this Report
* 3.0 Scope of this Report
* 4.0 Methodology of this Report

Chapter Two: Nano-memory Technology Assessment

In this chapter we will briefly review the key nanomemory solutions and how they work. For each of these technologies we will then discuss in depth how far the development work has come, which semiconductor and OEM firms are giving each of the technologies backing and which start-ups in each space are showing promise. University-based research should be discussed only where it shows promise for near-term commercialization. This chapter also contains an in-depth analysis of the commercial advantages that each nanomemory promises. These may include non-volatilty, rad-hardness, ability to create entirely new products, and cost advantages. We will also discuss where new materials will enable new/better production methodologies.

* 2.1 Storage Technology: Advantages, Disadvantages and Timeframes
* 2.2 Limitations of Existing Technologies
* 2.3 Magnetic Drives and Tapes
* 2.4 MRAM
* 2.5 FRAM
* 2.6 Holographic Memory
* 2.7 Non-Optical Phase Change Media/Ovonic Unified Memory
* 2.8 Molecular Memory
* 2.9 Nanotube RAM
* 2.10 MEMS-Based Memory
* 2.11 Polymer Memory
* 2.12 Other Types of Nanostorage

Chapter Three: Applications and Markets

This chapter covers the applications in which nanomemories are most likely to be used in the next eight years. The chapter looks at which types of conventional memory they will replace and where they will be used in entirely novel applications. In addition, this chapter discusses in depth which types of products are most likely to require nanomemories. The range of products considered includes notebook computers, home computers and consumer electronics, business computers and networking products, cell phones and other handheld communications devices, portable recoding and display/playback devices, control systems and embedded computers, sensors, smart cards, RFIDs and military/aerospace products.

* 3.1 Introduction
