Thin film memory offers significant advantages over any other electronic verification solution and gives a highly secure label through the use of proprietary printed electronics technology. It is the world’s only printed rewritable non-volatile memory. It consists of permalloy, ferromagnetic material deposited on a substrate of thin glass. The pattern is determined by the shape of the mask. The thickness of each magnetized area is controlled by the amount of time the shutter opens.This thin film memory is also used in high speed projects. Military computers where the concern for memory storage is not so much there thin film memory is used. For instance, it can record the number of days a refill is in use or it can alert the consumer when the replacement is needed.
One of the main driving force of thin-film memory is the growing demand from the end user. The demand of thin film memory from the end user is responsible for the growth of thin film memory market at a very swift pace in the future. In addition, low manufacturing cost, environment friendly technology, growing demand for flexible electronics have escalated the growth of Thin Film Memory market. In addition, it also supports the integration with other electronic component and sensors and can be produced using high volume, roll to roll printing. There are certain restraining factor which impede the growth of global Thin Film Memory market. These restraints include storage density issue due to which the performance of the thin film memory gets hampered. Despite of the hindrances, the global Thin Film Memory market is aided by attractive opportunities owing to the rising demand and high performance of thin film memory .
