Beyond 10 and 40 Gbps Next Generation Ethernet and SONET/SDH

MRAM may be one of the first complex nanotechnology products to generate significant revenues and it appears to have the commitment of more leading semiconductor firms than any other single nanoelectronics product. And already the hype has begun. For example, NVE, which claims some of the basic patents in the MRAM space, has seen its stock price rocket as naive investors rush in to make big money from the latest "nanostock." One of our competitors claims that by 2010, the MRAM market will be about the same size as the entire computer memory market is today.

This report provides a balanced analysis of the MRAM market. It examines exactly where the market for MRAM chips will be and the commitment that major semiconductor firms are making to MRAM. Such an analysis is long overdue, for while we expect MRAM to generate $12.9 billion in revenues by 2011, we believe it is important to understand what the capabilities of MRAM are and where the actual demand can be expected to come from. This report combines a technology assessment, eight-year market forecast and appraisal of the market strategies of leading firms active in the MRAM business.
