plans to seek partners to make the device ubiquitous, in a similar fashion to the firm's Ovonyx venture (owned 39.5% by ECD with venture capital from Intel), which aims to commercialize OUM--Ovonic Unified Memory--technology to replace FLASH and DRAM technologies.--KMK

Universal Memory (OUM) thin-film semiconductor memory technology, was originally invented by SR Ovshinsky, the president, chief scientist and technologist and co-founder of ECD Ovonics
' Production Technology and Machine Building Division will build the manufacturing equipment for the joint venture.

: In partnership with ChevronTexaco, developed tank for storing hydrogen in solid form and converted a Toyota Prius hybrid to run on hydrogen fuel.
Hydrogen Systems (TOHS), an ECD Ovonics
joint venture, is showing how this can be achieved today by demonstrating the use of its breakthrough low-pressure, metal-hydride hydrogen storage system in a modified hydrogen-electric hybrid Toyota Prius.
No one understood ovonics
before Ovshinsky invented it.
General Motor's Ovonics
unit donated 28 solar modules this past May to the tiny hamlets of El Sabino, El Naranjo and Sicuandi, which are tucked away in the Sierra Sur mountains in the southern state of Oaxaca, but the local government still had to spend $300,000 on installation and related expenses.
Some of the scrap would be sold to companies such as Ovonics
, which produces nickel hydride batteries for scooters, cars, computers and children's toys.
