RRAM (Resistive Random-Access Memory) is a type of NVM (Non-Volatile Memory) with large storage capacity, and has the potential to replace the flash memories used in electronic products such as smart phone, AIoT (Artificial Internet of Things), IoT (Internet of Things) and automotive chips.
As the replacement of NVM, RRAM is becoming increasingly popular. Especially when the performance and energy efficiency of chips are constantly improving, RRAM has presented lower reading latency and higher writing speed. Compared to the NAND flash, RRAM also have the advantage of higher switching speed. Moreover, its power consumption is lower than NAND Flash, making it an ideal memory that can be applied in industrial, automotive, AIoT and IoT chips.
