In smartphones we have space problems, in PCs other types of problems. Yet in many years it has not been possible to build a sort of single block that integrates RAM e storage memory. However, it seems that some scientists are succeeding in the enterprise and we will tell you about it by talking about the UltraRAM project. Physicists of the Lancaster University, based in the United Kingdom, issued an article on developing a hardware component that combines RAM and storage into one device, combining the best of both worlds.

Is it possible to merge RAM and storage memory on any device? Apparently yes: here is the UltraRAM project

RAM and storage memory directly affect the overall performance of a device. Clearly, however, each type of component has its own task and its operation does not disregard that of the other. The idea of ​​British physicists area of Lancaster University was that of try to combine the two components into one in order to solve some limitations. Here it is be born UltraRAM. This is an embryonic project at the moment, which currently has no release date.

The proposal is to combine the non-volatility of data storage memories, such as flashes (used in SSDs and USB sticks) with the speed, energy efficiency and resistance of internal memories, such as DRAMs. The RAM memory technologies we know they are volatile

, that is, they lose stored data when there is no power, functioning as a kind of temporary storage for the system. SSDs and HDs, for example, retain recorded data even when the computer is turned off, therefore they are not volatile  However, they are slower than the first in data transfers to the CPU.

In theory, Lancaster University researchers propose a type of non-volatile memory, but which, at the same time, can be as fast as a DRAM module. Studies point out that such a module can store data for over a thousand years but there are many other parameters that have yet to be evaluated, such as the reliability of data writing and reading performance.

This technology still is very far from reaching the market, or it may never be released. Either way, the search continues. Among the various factors to be analyzed, it is necessary that i Costi of manufacturing are feasible for the proposal to gain strength.
