what about a thermal copper pillar bump

you guys also mentioned memristors which people seem to think are promising. what about spintronics
If you are referring to mram or magnetoresistive random-access memory, it has advantages and disadvantages. The biggest issue is that DRAM is fast and has a very high density and scales down with newer smaller processes. The same applies for FLASH memory. As long as Fram and Mram do not scale as well as DRAM and FLASH memory, we are only going to see niches. Also DRAM and FLASH are mature technologies. FRAM and MRAM are available but at lower memory sizes and are more expensive. But i keep on hoping.
