Scalability (cont.)

Since the dimensions of the PMCm are compatible with those of transistors, the technology evolution implied by the roadmap is directly applicable. More significantly, some roadblocks are also avoided. Power dissipation in small devices is a major problem and to reduce its impact, supply voltage levels have been systematically reduced in line with device dimensions. The prospect of operating current memorydesigns below 0.6 volts in 2014 is daunting but the PMCm does not face this limitation. The electrochemical dissolution process operates at potentials below 0.5 volts so the scalability requirement for future technology is satisfied. In this respect alone, the PMCm is unique among future memory contenders. Additional benefits come from scalability of other performance measures such as speed and power.
