Crocus Technology to Present Technical Findings on Spin Transfer Torque Technology (STT) at the 11th Joint MMM-Intermag Conference

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - January 15, 2010) - Crocus Technology, a premier developer of Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM) technology, will present a series of technical papers on Spin Transfer Torque (STT) and MRAM technology at the 11th Joint MMM-Intermag Conference. The conference will be held from January 18 - January 22 in Washington, DC. Crocus, along with its affiliates at the world renowned Spintec Laboratories in Grenoble, France, will be presenting five technical papers including one invited paper. Crocus invites attendees, press, and analysts to attend the presentations below.

The results in the field of Spin Transfer Torque to be presented at the conference build on STT innovations previously announced by Crocus in October 2009. Crocus' team, with its development partner Spintec, has been focused on innovations in STT and other MRAM technology for more than 10 years. Additional papers to be presented detail the company's Thermal Assist technology for achieving high stability in MRAM memories.
