UCLA Engineers Develop ‘1,000 Times More Energy Efficient’ RAM

Researchers at UCLA’s Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have found a way to improve computer memory, making it faster and 10 to 1,000 times more energy-efficient, by using electric voltage instead of a flowing electric current.

The ultra-fast, high-capacity class of computer memory is known as magnetoresistive random access memory, or MRAM. The UCLA team says its improved memory, called MeRAM for magnetoelectric random access memory, has potential to be used in future memory chips for smart-phones, tablets, computers and microprocessors, as well as for data storage, like the solid-state disks used in computers and large data centers.
