Hardware, Embedded Systems Thinking that HP's memristors can't arrive early enough on the market? Here's competition already! A team at North Carolina State University, led by Dr Paul Franzon, has unveiled the "double floating-gate field effect transistor", a component based on the same principles as flash memory which would allow to store data for "a couple of years" in around 15 nanoseconds.

A cool development. The SWITCHING time between the on and the off state is 15ns and this state can be preserved for a few years. The first time I read that it sounded like it could transfer two years of data in 15 nanoseconds! Granted that doesn't make much sense!
