The global memory market accounts for more than $57 billion which is expected to surge to $99 billion by 2015.

PCRAM technology, being non-volatile provides power saving opportunities to the end users. Although it is observed to possess features better than the conventional solutions such as SRAM, flash memory and DRAM, its reach in the mass markets is yet to gain momentum. While Micron Technology (HEADQUARTERS) and Samsung (Korea) lead the R&D activities with respect to PCRAM, there are also a number of other companies and universities such as Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Microchip Technology Inc (HEAD), Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (HEAD) and more contribute effectively to its R&D.

ReRAM utilizes materials that change their resistance in response to the applied voltage. This in turn facilitates its data retention capability which is considered to be one of their key advantages. In addition, they also have the ability to read/ write data at high speeds by utilizing limited voltage. These features have largely motivated the industry participants to further study the technology and develop products for the mass market. Some of the key companies involved in R&D activities related to ReRAM include Elpida Memory Inc (Japan), Sharp (Japan), IMEC (Belgium), Samsung (Korea). Its potential density and speed are expected to open up valuable markets for this technology in the near future.

STT-RAM is an evolution in magnetic storage from hard disk drives to solid-state semiconductor memory which uses spin-polarized current to write magnetic bits. The key building block for the STTRAM is the magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ).

STT-RAM has been acknowledged by key semiconductor companies as the leading memory solution for the 45 nm technology node and beyond. STT-RAM is expected to solve the key drawbacks of first-generation, field-switched MRAM.

Spin-transfer torque can be used to flip the active elements in magnetic random-access memory. Spin-transfer torque random-access memory, or STT-RAM, has the advantages of lower power consumption and better scalability over conventional magnetoresistive random-access memory (MRAM) which uses magnetic fields to flip the active elements. Spin-transfer torque technology has the potential to make MRAM devices efficient in combining low current requirements and reduced cost; however, the amount of current needed to reorient the magnetization is at present too high for most commercial applications, and the reduction of this current density alone is the basis for current academic research in spin electronics.
