You don’t usually hear people bragging about how much storage their car has, instead, the focus was on better brakes, entertainment systems or more horsepower. Now, cars are like phones and computers, people want to know if the storage is big enough, rugged enough, safe enough for them. Automotive applications have many specialized requirements for non-volatile […]Read more "Non-volatile Memory Technology Enabling ADAS Systems"
Trends in memory chips such as NAND flash and non-volatile memory show the parts are gaining importance in the data center. Data centers are beginning to transition from CPU-centric systems to data-centric systems. a positive for memory makers Micron and Everspin. a negative for processor makers Intel and AMD. The primary message from NAND Flash […]Read more "NAND Flash Memory Are Gaining Importance in the Data Center"
Tesla is testing samples of a machine-learning chip that it developed in collaboration with Advanced Micro Devices. Tesla is working with AMD to refine its new chip, which will likely reduce its reliance on Nvidia. The chip was developed by Tesla’s Autopilot group, a team of about 50 engineers under Jim Keller, a veteran microprocessor […]Read more "Tesla and AMD to develop its own A.I. chip for self-driving cars"
DRAM and NAND prices are going up and projected to rise further. Many people perceive the current memory market situation as a temporary imbalance between supply and demand. Or, they expect the market to settle when the manufacturing of 3D NAND flash reaches maturity. There is extreme competition in the NAND market. Based on expectations […]Read more "DRAM and NAND Prices Are Rising and Projected to Rise More"
Artificial intelligence in your hand, not in the cloud! Apple’s new iPhone X is the future of the smartphones, with new facial recognition and augmented reality features presented as the credentials to back up this claim. But these features wouldn’t be half as slick without a little bit of hidden futurism tucked away in the […]Read more "iPhone X’s A11 Bionic Neural Engine Chip Demonstrates Apple’s Approach to AI"
Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in “smart pills” to diagnose and treat diseases. This new technology’s location can be precisely identified within the body, something that was challenging before. A smart pill contains a one-square-millimeter sensor . Once swallowed, the sensor is activated by electrolytes within the body. […]Read more "New Microchip Technology to Track ‘Smart Pills’"
DRAM and NAND prices are going up and projected to rise further. Many people perceive the current memory market situation as a temporary imbalance between supply and demand. Or, they expect the market to settle when the manufacturing of 3D NAND flash reaches maturity. However, no one knows when DRAM supplies will improve. The demand: […]Read more "Memory Prices Are Climbing"
