Why ST-MRAM Will Soon Make A

Major Market Impact



Barry Hoberman,

Chairman & CEO,

Spin Transfer Technologies



 Thin film magnetics has been the heart of high density, high latency data storage for decades. Semiconductor memory has filled the province of high throughput, low latency data storage. 

Advances in semiconductor memory, particularly Flash, have enabled SSD’s to  encroach on the disk storage world. Conversely, a technology from the historical disk drive domain of thin film magnetics will soon drive a new segment of semiconductor memory. 

The magnetic tunnel junction, or MTJ, implemented with perpendicular magnetic orientation, and leveraging ‘spin transfer torque’ switching, will soon emerge to enable a significant new position in the semiconductor memory market. 

New techniques for improving the switching characteristics of pMTJ devices will advance the state of the industry.



Barry Hoberman has served as CEO  & Chairman of Spin Transfer Technologies since 2012.  

He has over 35 years of management and engineering expertise in the semiconductor industry. Prior to his current role, he served as chief marketing officer at Crocus Technology, a semiconductor company.

Earlier, Hoberman was the founder and CEO of inSilicon, a leading semiconductor IP supplier, which was acquired by Synopsys in 2002. His leadership experience also includes CEO positions with Virtual Silicon and T-Zero Technologies. Earlier in his career, Hoberman held management positions at AMD and Monolithic Memories.

Hoberman holds B.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and over 30 US patents.

Job Seeker Assistance at this event:

 In response to recent new layoffs, and continuing concerns for people seeking employment,

 SFBA Nano is offering assistance to job seekers.

 1.  A table with CVs/resumes available for people to pick up, and

 2.  An "Announcement Slide" which will be projected during the initial networking session


Job Seekers:

 1. Bring copies of your resume for distribution & display on the resume table.

 2. Send a one-line description of yourself, to be displayed on the “Announcement Slide” listed above in item 1.

    Example, “John Paul Strachan, over 35 yrs experience in Circular Arguments; seeking Marketing position”

 Send your one-line description by March 19 to:


Please feel free to forward this invitation to any of your own colleagues who may be seeking jobs.  


* Please help us manage our event planning. When too many free registrants do not attend, and we have many walk-in attendees ... This makes it difficult for us to order the proper amount of food for lunch.
