NVM: Kilopass unplugged

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

 

Not surprisingly, Silicon Valley based Kilopass Technology continues to advocate for non-volatile memory, in particular the company’s VCM [Vertical Cross-point Memory] bit-cell technology. In a recent phone call with Andre Hassan, Field Marketing and Applications Director at the company, we discussed why Kilopass see the future going their way.

**********************

WWJD: In 25 words or less, what is NVM?

Andre Hassan: Non Volatile Memory [NVM], at least the Kilopass version, is a one-time programmable standard CMOS process anti-fuse memory that maintains its contents through power down.

WWJD: When did volatile memory become King of the Hill?

Andre Hassan: With the introduction of SRAM and DRAM from companies like IBM and Intel in the late 1960’s.

WWJD: When will NVM mean just memory and not a special form of memory?

Andre Hassan: Actually it started out that way with magnetic core memory in the mid-1950s. Since then, the industry has tried to come back to it multiple times. It’s the holy grail that people have been chasing as long as I’ve been in the industry.
