In mobile systems, the demand for the energy saving continues to require a low power memory sub-system. During the last decade, the floating-gate flash memory has been an indispensable low power memory solution. However, NOR flash memory has begun to show difficulties in scaling due to the device's reliability and yield issues. Over the past few years, phase-change random access memory (PRAM) has emerged as an alternative non-volatile memory (NVM) owing to its promising scalability and low cost… Expand
A 20nm 1.8V 8Gb PRAM with 40MB/s program bandwidth
An 8Gb PRAM with 40MB/s write bandwidth featuring 8Mb sub-array core architecture with 20nm diode-switched PRAM cells is presented and when an external high voltage is applied, the write bandwidth can be extended as high as 133 MB/s. Expand
A Sequential Write Scheme for Phase Change Memory Based Serial Interface EEPROM

An 8Mb multi-layered cross-point ReRAM macro with 443MB/s write throughput
An 8Mb multi-layered cross-point ReRAM macro with 443MB/S write throughput is developed, which is almost twice as fast as existing methods, using the fast-switching performance of TaOχ ReRAM and the following three techniques to reduce the sneak current in bipolar type cross- point cell array structure in an 0.18μm process.

Throughput Enhancement for Phase Change Memories
This paper develops a non-blocking PCM bank design such that subsequent reads or writes can be carried in parallel with an on-going write, effective in removing long blocking time due to serial operations and proposes novel memory request scheduling algorithms to exploit intra-bank parallelism brought by the non- blocking hardware.

A review of emerging non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies and applications
High-performance and low-cost emerging NVMs may simplify memory hierarchy, introduce non-volatility in logic gates and circuits, reduce system power, and enable novel architectures, and Storage-class memory (SCM) based on high-density NVMs could fill the performance and density gap between memory and storage.

It is argued that a PCM design not only has to consider normal wear-out under normal application behavior, but also must take the worst-case scenario into account with the presence of malicious exploits and a compromised OS to address the durability and security issues simultaneously. Expand
