The ups and downs of capacitor hold up in 2.5" flash SSDs
Back in the early 1990s it was not uncommon to hear about specialist server companies which were using peltier effect heat sinks to refrigerate the fastest workstation processors so that they could be run at higher clock speeds... One of the biggest bottlenecks in the past decade has been RAM architecture and DRAM implementation itself.

Rambus and Xilinx partner on FPGA in DRAM array technology
Editor:- October 4, 2016 - Rambus today announced a license agreement with Xilinx that covers Rambus patented memory controller, SerDes and security technologies.

Rambus is also exploring the use of Xilinx FPGAs in its Smart Data Acceleration research program. The SDA - powered by an FPGA paired with 24 DIMMS - offers high DRAM memory densities and has potential uses as a CPU offload agent (in-situ memory computing).
Tezzaron expects to ship ReRAM SSDs in 2016
Editor:- January 23, 2015 - Tezzaron Semiconductor today announced it will use Rambus's ReRAM technology in forthcoming storage-class 3D memory devices for military, aerospace and commercial applications. The first of these designs is scheduled for production in 2016.
Rambus aims at replacement for flash SSDs
Editor:- February 13, 2012 - Rambus recently announced it has acquired Unity Semiconductor for an aggregate of $35 million in cash.

As part of this acquisition, the Unity team members have joined Rambus to continue developing innovations and solutions for next-generation non-volatile memory.

With 9 years of development history, Unity's memory technology, CMOx, has been designed to accelerate the commercialization of the Terabit generation of non-volatile memories. Unity expects that devices using CMOx cell technology will (one day) achieve higher density, faster performance, lower manufacturing costs and greater data reliability than NAND Flash.

"At Rambus, we are creating disruptive technologies to enable future electronic products," said Sharon Holt, senior VP and GM of the Semiconductor Business Group at Rambus. "With the addition of Unity, we can develop non-volatile memory solutions that will advance semiconductor scaling beyond the limits of today's NAND technology. This will enable new memory architectures that help meet ever-increasing consumer demands."
