Important facts of Magnetic Random Access Memory (RAM):

  • The Spin-transfer torque (STT) based nano spintronic device is expected to put an end to computer data loss due to interruptions of power supply.
  • This technology will have the capability to transform next-generation computers, smartphones, and other gadgets.
  • In magnetic RAMs, data are represented as the spin of electrons.
  • In magnetic RAMs uses spintronic technology and utilizes the spin of the electrons to transmit and process information, unlike normal electronic devices that are driven by electron charges.
  • It harnesses the spin of electrons and manipulates the magnetic state leads to what is known as Spin-Transfer Torque-Magnetic Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM).
