Samples of a ferro-electric CMOS random access memory chip that retains its state when power is cut off are due to ship this month from Ramtron Corp of Colorado Springs, Colorado. According to the Newsbytes wire, the prototype has an unlimited number of write cycles, and in contrast to an EPROM, can write or change only one bit at a time. Research on the chip began some years ago at the University of Colorado. Ramtron expects to hire 70 next year to make the new chips.
