Ovonic Unified Memory (OUMR), also known as Chalcedony, is one of three types of complex multivitamin memories. The others are Chaletine and Unite Memory. Phase-transition memory is also a kind of non-volatile, random-access memory,
which is used in digital devices such as digital cameras and CD players. The latter two kinds of complex memories have their names from the types of media that store them.
Ovonic Unified memory, sometimes called random access memory, is basically a form of un-maintained random access memory found in many microprocessor based products.
It is comprised of binary and ternary operations on a memory chip that is in fact a miniature hard drive. Ovonic memory’s architecture is based on those of the classical PC.
An ovonic unified memory chip comprises four key components: an input apparatus including a microprocessor; a non volatile memory including random access memory (RAM) and SRAM, and an output device including a ROM.
The chip can be turned on and off electrically or magnetically depending upon the need. In its non-volatile form it can be wiped with a clean cloth or washed with water. The physical size of the chip is in the range of about one micrometer to about twenty micrometers. It has the ability to store approximately two petabytes worth of information.
The Ovonic memory chip is made of two different types of materials: a crystalline material and a polycrystalline material. In the case of the crystalline material the material is basically boron but in the case of the polycrystalline material the material is mostly a polyimide.
These two different materials are used in order to produce different types of memory: the hard drive or the solid state drive and the flash drive or the nonvolatile memory. In the case of the Ovonic chip this versatility is combined in order to produce an ovonic unified memory that is suitable for use as a computer or a mobile phone.
As compared to other forms of flash memory technologies, the Ovonic’s memory is more effective, faster, and smaller in size. In order to achieve these characteristics the Ovonic has to be designed in a very special way.
First of all the Ovonic test chip is not like other chips: it contains a nonvolatile memory technology in which it is possible to replace only one component at a time. This means that if you have to replace a part you do not have to remove the whole chip from your system.
Besides this, the Ovonic has to be designed in such a way that it is not affected by electromagnetic interference. The electromagnetic interference can distort and interfere with the signal which originates from the flash memory device. This problem cannot occur with the Ovonic, because it does not contain any metallic elements.
Finally the Ovonic flash memory has to operate at extremely high frequencies which ensure that no distortion takes place and also that the signal is made consistent and stable. These characteristics are the ones that make the Ovonic unified memory a superior and useful technology.
