IBM-Infineon-Macronix Memory Research Shifty

IBM, Macronix and Infineon announced another collaboration to work on Phase Changing Memory (PCM). The three companies will investigate the future of memory storage technology in the form of a device that will shift its structure.

The new technology will shift electronic memory from an amorphous to a crystalline format instead of the traditional. A laser will shine on the material, and depending on its form (crystalline or amorphous) will determine 1 or 0 in the binary language.


"This collaborative effort reinforces IBM's commitment to explore new phenomena for memory applications," said T.C. Chen, vice president of science and technology, IBM Research. "The project will aim to develop the materials for high performance, advanced nonvolatile memory and evaluate these materials in realistic memory chip demonstrations."


"The initiative underlines Infineon's strong momentum in the evaluation and development of interesting emerging memory technologies," said Wilhelm Beinvogl, senior vice president of technology and innovation at Infineon's memory products group. "With this partnership combining resources from specialists in different areas, Infineon continues its long history of R&D co-operations."

Companies have been fooling with this technology now for quite a few years. Gordon Moore over at Intel said Intel's Ovonics Unified memory would be the way consumers flew 3 decades ago and it hasn't even made it in the cockpit yet. The technology is expected to take 20 years or more to develop for these 3 companies.
