Will ReRAM Replace Flash?

Flash occupies a unique position in the history of storage. Just as we're getting a good handle on how to take full advantage of the stuff, people are already saying we have just a few years before the chip boffins will have shrunk flash as much as they can and we'll have to find a replacement. The folks at Crossbar have their money on resistive random-access memory (ReRAM).

Resistive RAM (ReRAM) Squeezes 1TB on a Chip Smaller Than a Stamp

Most people have probably heard about RAM (Random-access memory), which lets you access any byte of memory without touching the preceding bytes, hence the random name. RAM is still the most common type of memory and you will find it in your computer, smartphone, tablet and many other electronics. Basically, it’s one of the features that are on the basis of the \$1.1 trillion electronics market.
