Emerging memories have the potential to disrupt the memory hierarchy if they satisfy stringent requirements needed to integrate them into a high-density memory. As traditional memory ( DRAM and NAND) scaling is becoming increasingly difficult, various emerging memories are being considered as options for future memory scaling as well as for niche applications in compute systems. In this talk we will specifically discuss traditional memory scaling issues, fundamental limitations, scaling and integration challenges associated with emerging memories like Ox-ReRAM, Metal-ReRAM and STTRAM.
