Non-Volatile Memory Tradeoffs Intensify


Non-volatile memory is becoming more complicated at advanced nodes, where price, speed, power and utilization are feeding into some very application-specific tradeoffs about where to place that memory. NVM can be embedded into a chip, or it can be moved off chip with various types of interconnect technology. But that decision is more complicated than it might first appear. It depends on the ... » 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

A Comparison Of Embedded Non-Volatile Memory Technologies And Their Applications


With complexity of SOCs growing and time to market cycles shortening, designers need to have an arsenal of tricks to deliver highly differentiated products to market quickly. The arsenal may include SystemC, EDA tools to achieve a faster timing closure, and IP from high speed I/Os to memories. The most pervasive memory IPs are SRAM and ROM. Less pervasive memory IPs include non-volatile memory ... » read more
