NVE Corporation has been notified by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office of the expected grant today of two patents relating to spintronics.

The first patent is number 7,390,584 and titled "Spin dependent tunneling devices having reduced topological coupling." Spin-dependent tunnel junctions, also known as magnetic tunnel junctions or tunneling magnetic junctions, are spintronic structures that can form the heart of spintronic magnetoresistive random access memory technology, commonly known as MRAM.

The second patent is number 7,391,091 and titled "Magnetic particle flow detector," and is related to spintronic biosensor technology, which could be used in laboratory-on-a-chip systems.
