The Electronics Weekly magazine organized a new edition of the Elektra Awards, a contest where readers are asked to vote for different topics, and the ULTRARAM™ project won the “University Research Project of the Year” because readers considered it would make the largest impact on the commercial market in the next five years.
This category was represented by six universities: Birmingham, Cambridge, Durham, Glasgow, Lancaster and Sheffield. And the winning article was about Lancaster University’s research investigating the commercialisation of ULTRARAM™, a novel type of universal computer memory invented by Professor Manus Hayne.
ULTRARAM™ is a computer memory that combines the performance of DRAM with the non-volatility of flash into a single memory concept without any of their disadvantages and it stands for: “Ultralow-power, Non-volatile, Random-Access Memory Arrays for Datacentres and Space Applications”, and it is a highly disruptive technology which can store data for more than 1,000 years.
More information about the ULTRARAM™ project is available here.
