Everspin recently announced they have begun pilot production of their 1Gb STT-MRAM (Spin-transfer Torque Magnetoresistive RAM) nonvolatile memory, after shipping the first pre-production samples in December. The new MRAM parts are fabbed on a GlobalFoundries 28nm process and are a significant advance in density and capacity compared to their current 40nm 256Mb parts. Production will be ramping up through the second half of this year. The new parts offer 8-bit or 16-bit DDR4 interfaces at 1333MT/s (667MHz), but as with the older DDR3-based MRAM components, timing differences mean they're not necessarily a drop-in replacement for DRAM. Low capacities have kept discrete MRAM components largely confined to embedded systems, where SoCs and ASICs can more easily be designed with compatible DDR controllers. The new 1Gb capacity...
