back to article All we wanna do is talk torque: Taiwanese boffins spin a better way to switch MRAM states

Taiwanese spintronics boffins have made an important finding in magnetic random access memory (MRAM) tech: a faster way to switch MRAM states by using a nanometre scale layer of platinum. Spintronics is a developing field of nanoscale electronics - and it uses not only the charge of electrons but also their spin to effect …

    Obvious question is....

    Is switching pulse current in switching layer + current in Pt layer < switching pulse current without a Pt layer?

    And if so by how much?
