Unity has also struggled. After years in R&D, Unity in 2009 finally unveiled its nonvolatile memory technology and also obtained $22 million in funding. The company's technology, called CMOx, is based on the use of new materials called conductive metal oxides. With the technology, Unity claims to have devised a passive rewritable crosspoint memory array that requires no transistors in a memory cell.

Unity has been processing 64Kb and 64Mb products. The 64Gbit chip was slated for pilot production in the second half of 2010, with volume production in 2Q 2011.

Niebel believes that it will take four years to bring the technology into production, rather than the previous target.

Meanwhile, Unity announced its new leadership team today. David Eggleston has been named as CEO, and Christophe Chevallier, as COO. Louis Parrillo, former head of Spansion's flash memory R&D organization, joins Unity as chief technology officer. Eggleston joined the company in 2007 as vice president of engineering and marketing.
