Is NAND flash memory fast enough? You tell me. Your mobile device is most likely using it right now. It seems speedy enough, but according to Sharp and Elipa’s standards, NAND is running at a snail’s pace. The two companies have teamed up to develop ReRAM (Resistive Random Access Memory), a new form of flash which improves the speed of NAND up to 10,000 times.
Sharp and Elipa say they expect to have ReRAM ready for mass production as early as 2013, which in company press release years, equals more like a 2015-2016 market date. The future? The future seems fast.
