Samsung could use its fast MRAM technology for wearables


Smartphones may be the devices we write about the most, but wearables are also rather popular. This is why companies have developments in that area so that they can improve the smartwatches we wear. In particular, Samsung wants to use MRAM with wearables.

According to The Elec, magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) has a smaller die size than the SRAM currently used in wearables. Its use will allow Samsung to fit more memory modules in the same space, which should greatly enhance performance. Besides that, MRAM should deliver significantly faster read and write speeds.

For those who are unaware, MRAM chips are normally used in the IoT and AI fields. But it may take some time before if Samsung wants to use it in consumer tech. Fortunately, the global MRAM market is expected to grow to USD 1.2 billion (~RM4.89 billion) by 2024, which means we will see consumer products in a few years.

In short, MRAM could provide better overall performance. If that's the case, what more would you like a wearable to be able to do with all the extra power? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
