ULTRARAM is a revolutionary new type of computer memory that was invented and is under development in the Physics Department at Lancaster University.
It combines speed, endurance, retention, and energy efficiency into a single memory concept.
These astonishing properties are achieved by harnessing a quantum mechanical effect called resonant tunnelling.
Benefits to end user:
Ultra-efficient - extending battery life and/or reducing battery weight in the field
Non-volatile - data retained in the absence of power, instant reboot for fast response when power is restored.
High endurance - high reliability with long lifetime
High performance - no compromise in speed despite non-volatility
Low carbon – reduces large system power consumption.
