Title (EN) CAPACITOR BLOCK COMPRISING CAPACITORS THAT CAN BE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER AND METHOD FOR CHARGING AND DISCHARGING THE CAPACITORS TO WRITE A PHASE CHANGE MATERIAL MEMORY
(FR) MÉMOIRE DE MATÉRIAU À CHANGEMENT DE PHASE DÉCHARGÉE
Abstract:
(EN) An information storage array includes a programmable material at a storage location and a capacitor set. A switching network puts the capacitor set in a first configuration wherein each capacitor of the capacitor set is charged to a first voltage, and puts after the capacitor set in a second configuration such that the capacitor set generates a second voltage. The second voltage is greater than the first voltage and it or a waveform derived therefrom is applied to the storage location to thereby change a state of the programmable material.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un réseau de stockage d'informations qui comprend un matériau programmable au niveau d'un emplacement de stockage et un ensemble condensateur. Un réseau de commutation charge l'ensemble condensateur à une première tension et décharge l'ensemble condensateur à une seconde tension. La seconde tension est supérieure à la première tension et celle-ci ou une forme d'onde issue de celle-ci est appliquée à l'emplacement de stockage pour ainsi changer un état du matériau programmable.
