What is the Hybrid Memory Cube? Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) is a revolutionary innovation in DRAM memory architecture that sets a new  standard for memory performance, power consumption and cost. [1] HMC advances beyond traditional  DRAM system and setting itself as a new standard that can keep up with advancements of CPUs and  GPUs. What type of material could engineers use to produce a new type of flash memory? Standard material in most common flash memory is silicon.  However, scientists may have discovered a  new standard material that will surpass, in theory, the physical limitations of current silicon chips and  electronic transistors. [2] The scientists at EPFL’s Laboratory of Nanometer Electronics and Structures  (LANES) created this new potential material by combining molybdenite and graphene.  The process is  almost like making a sandwich.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
