Cadence and Everspin on Monday announced that Cadence’s DDR4 IP and verification IP now support Everspin’s 1 Gb STT-MRAM. Cadence’s support will make it easier for chip designers to support MRAM.

8-bit and 16-bit DDR4 memory controllers as well as verification IP from Cadence now support Everspin’s 1 Gb STT-MRAM in a JEDEC-compliant BGA package. This enables SSD controller and flash array manufacturers to add support for MRAM to their devices. Being aimed at enterprise-class SSDs (eSSDs), Everspin’s 1 Gb STT-MRAM offers lower latencies than traditional NAND flash memory, and the manufacturer envisions their MRAM being used to significantly lower the overall latency and increase the random performance of MRAM-equipped drives versus typical SSDs.

Everspin has done quite a lot for STT-MRAM promotion. In the last couple of weeks it announced support from Phison and Sage. Now STT-MRAM is supported by Cadence. When exactly we see the fruits of this work is something that remains to be seen.

    "When exactly we see the fruits of this work is something that remains to be seen." thats a very clunky sentence. This might filter down to us plebs in a year or two (if necessary).
    wheres the AMD 34ooge ? seems to be late appearing ..

    While I don't really care how they make NV-RAM, as long as it's fast, cheap and high capacity, I still would like to know which wall the titanium dioixde aka memristor technology hit against: Years and years of building up expectations and then.... zilch!

    I'd welcome an explanation, a link, anything...

    SSDs still have to deal with durability, usually by massive over-provisioning.
