Emerging Memories Author : Betty Prince Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media Total Pages : 280 Release : 2007-05-08 ISBN 10 : 9780306475535 ISBN 13 : 0306475537 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Emerging Memories Book Description: Emerging Memories: Technologies and Trends attempts to provide background and a description of the basic technology, function and properties of emerging as well as discussing potentially suitable applications. This book explores a range of new memory products and technologies. The concept for some of these memories has been around for years. A few completely new. Some involve materials that have been in volume production in other type of devices for some time. Ferro-electrics, for example, have been used in capacitors for more than 30 years. In addition to looking at using known devices and materials in novel ways, there are new technologies being investigated such as DNA memories, light memories, molecular memories, and carbon nanotube memories, as well as the new polymer memories which hold the potential for the significant manufacturing reduction. Emerging Memories: Technologies and Trends is a useful reference for the professional engineer in the semiconductor industry.
