The concept gadget with the ability of flexible, can bend-bend, even transparent has long blown by fans of gadgets. In fact, many designers gadgets have made a video picture to the flexible design of the gadget. Until seems the dream of many a gadget freak design is starting closer to reality. After the discovery of a flexible touch-screen technology, now turn a breakthrough made by scientists to make the memory device of a transparent plastic material.
The combined research from several agencies have successfully developed a magnetic memory chip made of a flexible plastic material. These advanced components will certainly be an important component of any development of an electronic device with a flexible and super lightweight design. Some of the technologies are ready to apply this breakthrough include automotive, medical equipment, industrial motor control and robotics, electrical industry, to the world of aviation and military.
This study design memory chips operate with a system magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM), which uses magnetic material magnesium oxide (MgO) for storing data. Known MRAM technology is superior to conventional RAM, as capable of storing data when no power supply, data processing faster, and of course the low power consumption. The team of scientists build MgO material layer on the surface of silicon as the beginning of the process of making this memory. Furthermore, they erode the silicon layer when the layers of MgO had been ready for use. By using printing technology, they provide an implant earlier magnetic material to the surface of flexible plastic polyethylene terephthalate. The implantation process must continue to always pay attention to plastic tension so that the material is not damaged.
They have continued to experiment and improvise on their findings to get the most appropriate settings. They also plan to try to apply the flexible memory to other electronic components. Do not close the door as well in the near future there will be electronics companies that want to try their research results.
