Breakthrough in Resistive Random Access Memory

Samsung has announced that it has achieved a significant breakthrough in resistive random access memory (RRAM) technology. The company's engineers and scientists have reportedly made significant improvements in durability, enabling RRAM prototypes to switch between writing and deleting up to a trillion times. The milestone is said to be approximately a million times higher than standard flash-memory durability.

The company's RRAM technology utilizes tantalum-based structures rather than traditional silicon construction. Aside from the significant jump in rewrite cycles, the chips are also said to satisfy basic requirements such as high densities, fast switching speeds, and low power consumption.

The RRAM work is published in the current issue of scientific journal Nature Materials. It remains unclear if the technology will eventually make its way into production.
