Technology Landscape Report - Memristor

Dublin, Nov. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Technology Landscape Report - Memristor" report to their offering.

Memristor, a resistive memory element, is touted as the next-generation memory technology. The technology appears very promising for implementation in new products, but is still in the growth stage and, therefore, the exact time for implementation is difficult to ascertain. A road-map is envisioned in the report based on detailed analysis of patenting activity, availability of prototype/products in the market, and technical feasibility of implementation of memristor at different level of memory architecture in current computing systems.

The report has been strategically tailored to incorporate different types of memristive technologies through categorizing the available technologies into primary and secondary categories. Meticulous patents' analysis is included to uncover emerging technologies (such as carbon based memories, multi-bit memories and many more).

Major market players are bench-marked based on the qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis (based on the metadata related to the patents). The contribution of gamut of institutes/ universities along with their joint development research programs is highlighted. The report also reveals the top inventors in the domain. The value chain analysis and market dynamics elaborates the functioning of memory industry and provides valuable insights on market conditions. The report deciphers a detailed technology comparison for gauging the success of technology.
