GIA announces the release of a trend report on Racetrack Memory. Exciting technology developments in the field of Spintronics or Spin Electronics is expected to give a boost to current R&D activity in racetrack memory. Transition towards paperless office and the growing need to readily and conveniently access large quantities of information represent factors which will drive the future potential of racetrack memory.

Racetrack Memory: A Trend Report

Racetrack Memory, also known as Domain-Wall Memory (DWM), is a new memory device being developed by International Business Machines (IBM). It is a non-volatile memory and on successful development, is capable of providing higher storage density and better read/write performance, compared to existing solid-state devices such as flash memory and disk drives. Development of racetrack memory is expected to benefit from technology developments in the field of “Spintronics”, which is widely touted as the new frontier in the field of computing. Studies indicate the potential of spin-polarized current in aiding the development of nonvolatile memory devices like racetrack memory capable of offering performance and reliability that outstrips the traditional solid-state memory. By leveraging spinning electrons to store data, racetrack memory is forecast to be cheaper and more cost effective than even the obsolete magnetic disk drive storage technology. Racetrack memory is forecast to play a critical role in the emerging era of three-dimensional microelectronic devices. Rising need to readily and conveniently access huge volumes of data coupled with the transition towards paperless offices wherein all records are stored in a digitalized format, will spur the need for new storage devices like racetrack memory.

The trend report titled “Racetrack Memory” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc. is a focused research paper which provides cursory insights into technology.
