STMicroelectronics has announced significant progress in the development of a new type of electronic memory that could eventually replace the Flash memory technology.

"[COLOR=#1951B9]Based on the highly-promising results it has obtained to date, ST already envisages the new Phase-Change Memory technology being used in medium-density, stand-alone memories and embedded applications. Moreover, by demonstrating the feasibility of the key features that make the PCM cell most attractive, ST has increased its confidence in the long-term scalability of the technology, which will eventually allow PCM to become a mainstream Non-Volatile Memory technology.[/COLOR]"
