Phase change memory-based 'Moneta' system points to the future of computer storage

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (June 3, 2011) — A University of California, San Diego faculty-student team is about to demonstrate a first-of-its kind, phase-change memory solid state storage device that provides performance thousands of times faster than a conventional hard drive and up to seven times faster than current state-of-the-art solid-state drives (SSDs).

The device was developed in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the UC San Diego...

Hardware encryption developed for new computer memory technology

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (May 18, 2011) — Security concerns are one of the key obstacles to the adoption of new non-volatile main memory (NVMM) technology in next-generation computers, which would improve computer start times and boost memory capacity. But now researchers from North Carolina State University have developed new encryption hardware for use with NVMM to protect personal information and other data.

NVMM technologies, such as phase-change...

Revolutionary new paper computer shows flexible future for smartphones and tablets

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (May 4, 2011) — The world's first interactive paper computer is set to revolutionize the world of interactive computing.

"This is the future. Everything is going to look and feel like this within five years," says creator Roel Vertegaal, the director of Queen's University Human Media Lab. "This computer looks, feels and operates like a small sheet of interactive paper. You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping...
