Information storage at one atom per bit; a 1kB atomic memory

A team of scientists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University has achieved what may represent a limit in information storage density by creating a memory in which a single bit is represented by a single atom. By Graham Prophet @ edn-europe.com: Specifically, the team...

Memory upgrade for ESP8266

Pete show us how to upgrade your ESP8266 with 32Mbit memory chip. Some time ago I passed comment in here about converting an ESP-01 to 32Mb  (or 4MB).  And here it is in the flesh – a 32Mb ESP-01 – and also – at last – Sonoff Upgrades. Now, why would you want to do all...

IBM scientists achieve storage memory breakthrough

For the first time, scientists at IBM Research have demonstrated reliably storing 3 bits of data per cell using a relatively new memory technology known as phase-change memory (PCM). The current memory landscape spans from venerable DRAM to hard disk drives to ubiquitous flash. But...

Current bending yields low-power magnetic memory

by Harry Baggen @ elektormagazine.com: Magnetic random-access memory (MRAM) is faster, more efficient and more robust than other data storage media. MRAM stores data by making clever use of electron spin – a sort of gyroscopic property of electrons. Because it used magnetism...

Testing DRAM Using an Arduino

Chris @ insentricity.com wanted to test a few dozen individual RAM chips so he decided to use Arduino to make his life a little bit easier. In the article he explains the interface with Arduino and gives the code on github. My first thought was to test the chips in the TL866CS, but...
