Advances in Memory Technology Could Lead to Mobile Phones Lasting for Weeks on a Single Charge

University of Illinois engineers have developed a form of ultra-low-power non-volatile memory could someday provide consumers with hand-held devices that go without recharging for weeks or even months.

The research is based on an existing technology known as phase-change random access memory, or just phase change memory (PCM). However, instead of using metal wires as resisters, the research team used carbon nanotubes that are 10,000 times thinner than a human hair and that require far less power than standard PCM.
