A Perspective on Nonvolatile Magnetic Memory Technology
Ronald B. Goldfarb
Magnetic random-access memory (MRAM) is characterized by nonvolatility, low energy dissipation, high endurance (repeated writing), scalability to smaller dimensions, compatibility with complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) processing, resistance to radiation damage, and short read and write times. The most intriguing of these, nonvolatility and low energy dissipation, are the main drivers of the technology. Recent accelerated growth in data centers and their demand for energy are bringing the need for new computer logic and memory to a head. There is a need to prototype, test, and benchmark the energy dissipation, high speed performance, reliability, dimensional scalability, temperature margins, and fabrication reproducibility of MRAM materials, devices, and circuits.
