We propose an improved scheme for low-power writing of binary bits in non-volatile (multiferroic) magnetic memory with electrically generated mechanical stress. Compared to an earlier idea [N. Tiercelin et al., J. Appl. Phys. 109, 07D726 (2011)], our scheme improves distinguishability between the stored bits when the latter are read with magneto-tunneling junctions. More importantly, the write energy dissipation and write error rate are reduced significantly if the writing speed is kept the same. Such a scheme could be one of the most energy-efficient approaches to writing bits in magnetic non-volatile memory. (C) 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.
