Follow up: Chalcogenide phase-change memory materials for high-speed, low-power data storage

By Eileen De Guire / June 9, 2011

I’ve received some follow-up information from Gang Chen, whose work on phase-change memory chalcogenide materials I wrote about earlier this week. He provided some numbers that illustrate the potential for very impressive reductions in power consumption for nonvolatile data storage based on PCMMs. Chen notes that the quoted 30-50% reduction in power consumption from lowering…
