In this study, the authors propose non-conventional phase-change memory programming schemes using a comprehensive model, which integrates the underlying electrical and thermal theories. Various pulsing schemes aiming to reduce operation power without compromising performance are assessed based on a calibrated model. Our results suggest that optimisation of power consumption can be done simply by design of pulsing techniques.
