Description: 

Grandis was established in 2002 and is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California. Investors include Applied Ventures, Sevin Rosen Funds, Matrix Partners, Incubic and Concept Ventures. Grandis’ proprietary Spin-Transfer Torque RAM (STT-RAM™) technology has all the characteristics of an ideal “universal memory” and represents a breakthrough over first-generation, field-switched magnetic random access memory (MRAM) technology. Also known as STT-MRAM, STT-RAM’s unique synthesis of non-volatility, low power consumption, ultra-fast read and write speed, unlimited endurance, and extendibility beyond the 32nm semiconductor node, provides significant advantages over conventional memory technologies and offers system designers the ability to develop new products with high performance, low power consumption and low cost. Grandis was acquired by Samsung in August 2011.
