The article reports that Crocus Technology is planning to provide the first commercial memory products in 2007. The Grenoble, France-based magnetic random access memory (MRAM) developer has raised $17 million in first round funding. Jean-Pierre Braun, Crocus' chief executive, said that they would try to bring MRAM that will fulfill the customers' expectations.
