IBM has demonstrated Everspin's latest Spin Torque DDR3 MRAM in the ConTutto platform in a Power8 system. The demonstration showed how Everspin's DDR3 ST-MRAM operates as persistent memory, accelerating storage and server applications.
ConTutto is an IBM research configurable platform for innovation in the memory subsystem of an OpenPOWER node. The DDR3 interface on the Everspin Spin Torque MRAM makes it easy for developers to take advantage of the write speed and persistence of MRAM. In his keynote address, Brad McCredie, Vice President and IBM Fellow, described this as the first functional demonstration of a storage class memory in an enterprise system.
Everspin Technologies is designing, manufacturing, and commercially shipping discrete and embedded Magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) and Spin-Torque MRAM (ST-MRAM).
The company recently joined the OpenPOWER Foundation as a silver member.
