In Search of the Next Memory Inside the Circuitry from the Oldest to the Emerging Non-Volatile Memories

by Roberto Gastaldi

In Search of the Next Memory Inside the Circuitry from the Oldest to the Emerging Non-Volatile Memories Synopsis

This book provides students and practicing chip designers with an easy-to-follow yet thorough, introductory treatment of the most promising emerging memories under development in the industry. Focusing on the chip designer rather than the end user, this book offers expanded, up-to-date coverage of emerging memories circuit design. After an introduction on the old solid-state memories and the fundamental limitations soon to be encountered, the working principle and main technology issues of each of the considered technologies (PCRAM, MRAM, FeRAM, ReRAM) are reviewed and a range of topics related to design is explored: the array organization, sensing and writing circuitry, programming algorithms and error correction techniques are reviewed comparing the approach followed and the constraints for each of the technologies considered. Finally the issue of radiation effects on memory devices has been briefly treated. Additionally some considerations are entertained about how emerging memories can find a place in the new memory paradigm required by future electronic systems. This book is an up-to-date and comprehensive introduction for students in courses on memory circuit design or advanced digital courses in VLSI or CMOS circuit design. It also serves as an essential, one-stop resource for academics, researchers and practicing engineers.

About Roberto Gastaldi

Roberto Gastaldi was born in Reggio Emilia, Italy in 1953. He received the laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from Politecnico of Milano in 1977. He attended a postgraduate course in solid-state physics at Perugia University in 1978 and a postgraduate course in Business management at Bocconi University (Milano) in 1995. In 1977 he joined SGS-ATES (later STMicrolectronics) in Agrate Brianza (Milano) where he was involved as a device engineer in central R&D department. In 1980 he moved to memory design team working on first EPROM and EEPROM products development and later as a responsible of EPROM design team he was in charge of the EPROM ...
