Paper Abstract

Ovonyx, Inc. is developing a nonvolatile memory that is potentially denser, faster, and easier to make than Dynamic RAM. It relies on phase transitions induced by nanosecond heating and cooling of small region of the memory cell. Initial target markets are FLASH memory, Embedded memory, and DRAM.
