Spam?[edit]

This device was developed at a university and is being brought to market by a university-derived spin-off? Sounds like an attempt to interest venture capital. Delmlsfan 14:41, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

It's not spam... it's a new development and I'm looking forwards to it. The article could be considered a bit advertising though, I'll fix it up when I find time :) Fredil 15:00, 3 November 2007 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fredil Yupigo (talkcontribs)
And, indeed, Adesto Technologies brought it to market in 2012 as CBRAM. p.r.newman (talk) 14:50, 17 January 2013 (UTC)


This appears to lean on the spam side - very little practical information here. Where are the cycling lifetime and write speed numbers? Wikibearwithme (talk) 07:25, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Comparison Section in error?[edit]

Shouldn't the Comparison Section read:

Flash is based on the floating gate concept, essentially a modified transistor. Conventional MOS transistors have three connections, the source, drain and gate. The gate is the essential component of the transistor, controlling the resistance between the source and drain, and thereby acting as a switch. In the floating gate transistor, the gate is isolated and embedded in an insulating layer base that allows it to trap electrons, leaving the transistor switched on (or off) for extended periods of time. The floating gate can be re-written by imposing a relatively high voltage across it from the source-drain circuit and a second gate electrode.

I agree. I also don't think it is worth while to give a full breakdown of how a floating gate transistor works. It will be better to compare the performance of the two technologies and link readers to respective wiki pages if they want to know more. JLTaggart (talk) 21:55, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Nanoionics[edit]

Nanoionics was coined in 17 January 1992. (Despotuli (talk) 12:14, 11 December 2007 (UTC))
