MRAM Technology and Business 2019

Yole Développement

MRAM promises life beyond eFlash: the embedded MRAM market is taking off and is expected to reach $1.2B by 2024.

Key features of the report

  • Overview of the spectrum of (STT-)MRAM technologies, along with their manufacturing processes and related technical/economic challenges
  • Description of three stand-alone and three embedded (STT-)MRAM applications
    • Stand-alone:
      • industrial, transportation, defense and other applications requiring low-density memory chips
      • enterprise storage, including accelerators and SSD caching
      • persistent memory such as NVDIMM
    • Embedded:
      • code/data storage memory, as an eFlash replacement
      • working memory, or “slow” SRAM, for ASSPs/ASICs such as AI edge accelerators
      • last-level cache memory, as eDRAM/SRAM replacements, in CPUs and mobile processors
  • 2018-2024 market forecast for stand-alone and embedded applications in $US, Gb and equivalents of 12’’ wafer starts
  • Overview of the latest R&D developments and next-generation magnetic memories such as SOTMRAM and VC-MRAM
  • Overview of potential applications in the long term, including L1-L2 caching based on SOT-MRAM, execute-in-place (XIP) memory such as high-density NOR replacements at 2Gb and above, and storage class memory via STT-MRAM crosspoint architectures
  • Mapping of the embedded and stand-alone MRAM supply chain with key partnerships
  • Analysis of the ecosystem’s maturity, challenges and strengths and description of the players’ activities at different levels of the supply chain
  • Presentation of the latest MRAM developments within the growing Chinese memory business
