MRAM: from STT to SOT, for security and memory

Abstract: "Spin Transfer Torque Magnetic Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM) is one of the leading candidates for embedded memory convergence in advanced technology nodes. It is particularly adapted to low-power applications, requiring a decent level of performance. However, it also have interests for secured applications. The PRESENT cipher is a lightweight cryptographic algorithm targeting ultra... » read more
