We present a study of the electric-field-induced switching of magnetic memory bits exhibiting interfacial voltage-controlled magnetic anisotropy (VCMA). Switching is analyzed in the single-domain approximation and in the thermally activated regime. The effects of external magnetic fields, magnitudes of the perpendicular anisotropy and VCMA effect, and voltage pulse width on the switching voltage are discussed. Both in-plane and perpendicular magnetic memory bits are considered. Experimental results are presented and compared to the theoretical model.
