Abstract:

The advantage of ODRAM relative to existing memory technologies is speed and capacity for a competitive price. The unit cost in early production will be in the range of 20,OOO-25,OOO for 100 Gigabytes of capacity. The nonmechancial access of ODRAM will enable much higher data throughput rates and much faster access to small records in large databases. ODRAM offers three orders of magnitude improvement in data access rates relative to mechanically-accessed memory technologies.
