We present an InAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) memory structure with all-electrical data access which uses holes as charge carriers. Charging and discharging of the QDs are clearly controlled by a gate voltage. The stored information is read-out by a two-dimensional hole gas underneath the QD-layer. Time resolved drain-current-measurements demonstrate the memory operation. Present write times are 80 ns.
