Samsung expects PRAM to replace NOR flash in consumer electronic devices starting next year. PRAM stores data using phase change characteristics in a base material alloy of germanium, antimony, and titanium.
The PRAM storage has three times faster data performance per word than NOR chips and is non-volatile. The structure of the PRAM is also simple allowing handsets to more quickly and easily access data.
