Industrial Electronics Gain Greater Manufacturing Flexibility With Embedded Memory


While IoT continues to capture the semiconductor industry’s collective imagination, not to be overlooked is the industrial electronics market. Just consider the wide swath industrial electronics cuts. It could be anything related to electrical equipment in an industrial setting, and includes everything from control systems, instrumentation, mechanicals and diagnostics to signal processing and... » read more

In The Era Of Driverless Cars, OTP Will Rule


Visit any car dealership these days and prepare to be amazed by the amount of electronics that comes standard with each car. That’s about to get even more evident as we head into the era of the driverless car, otherwise known as the connected or autonomous car. Who isn’t ready to leave the driving to electronics? The typical driver won’t be all that interested to learn that embedded me... » read more

A Closer Look At One-Time Programmable Embedded Memory


Being the first month of the year, chip designers have probably reflected on 2015 and are thinking ahead to upcoming projects this year. They want to produce a product that reflects tomorrow’s needs for electronic devices that include low power, high performance and high security. Now, they’re thinking about embedded memory, a requirement for all electronic devices. It’s captured the atte... » read more

OTP Dynamic Power Cut By Factor Of 10


Of the challenges being addressed by Internet of Things (IoT) designers around the globe, none is more pressing than the need to reduce edge-node power. While eyes often turn to the radio as primary consumer of energy, memory, including NVM memory, also contributes a substantial portion of the energy consumed by an edge node. Power reductions in all memories will be essential for meeting this c... » read more

Emerging IoT Applications Require Careful Consideration


The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating opportunities in the existing space held by traditional semiconductor applications, typically falling into categories that include industrial, fitness, health and lifestyle to apparel, safety and productivity. But there also are new, inventive devices. In the last several months, we’ve seen the launch of a canine Fitbit, a hybrid dog collar, and dyn... » read more

Memories Offer Measure Of Security For IoT Devices


Consumers are going to extremes to keep their electronic devices secure. A first-person account in The New York Times offered a novel way to thwart thieves from breaking into a car with a remote keyless system and stealing it — the author kept her car keys in the freezer. As extreme as this seems, it may only get worse as we move into the era of the Internet of Things. A recent Hewlett-Pac... » read more
