Crossbar Unveils Major Technical Innovation Behind Terabyte Storage-on-a-Chip
by BWW News Desk - Jun 30, 2014

1TnR makes it possible for a single transistor to manage a very large number of interconnected memory cells, enabling very high capacity solid-state storage. Other memories utilizing passive cross-point architectures, such as Resistive RAM, PCM (Phase Change Memory) and neuromorphic systems, experience unintended electrical current when accessing high density storage due to a phenomenon called "sneak path current." Until now, these memories have not been able to access data and have consumed excessive power, making dense memory configurations impractical. For the past decade, many of the world's experts have attempted to solve this issue, but with limited success. Crossbar is the first company to deliver a solution to this industry-wide problem by enabling a single transistor to drive over 2,000 memory cells with very low power, producing super-dense Crossbar RRAM semiconductor memories.
