Weg zu weiterer Miniaturisierung von FeRAM
Jülich / Aachen, 2 February 2021. Ferroelectric Random Access Memory, or FeRAM for short, offers both working memory and data storage in one. This saves on the time and energy needed by conventional computers to transport data between the two units. In addition, the saved data is retained even without a power supply. The write performance and service life of these components are already outstanding and the first FeRAMs are already in use, for example in chip cards or RFID tags. However, comparatively small amounts of data can as yet be stored on a FeRAM, as the space required for storing individual bits is too large.
