Nanotechnology means big changes for memory
Memory and storage devices have new competition from ASU with technology that could outdate the most common forms of existing memory devices, according to University researchers.
ASU's Center for Applied Nanoionics received a patent last week for a technology worth millions of dollars, said Michael Kozicki, a professor of electrical engineering and the director of CANi.
"(We) jumped to the next level in many respects as far as storage density is concerned," Kozicki said.
The patented technique, which is CANi's 25th U.S. patent, is projected to produce a new memory chip using existing materials to make a product that is 1,000 times as energy-efficient as flash memory, Kozicki said.
The technology would revolutionize iPhones and other mobile technology devices that use flash memory, he said.
