Why Attend Flash Memory Summit?
Flash Memory Summit (FMS) is an all-inclusive international memory and storage showcase. It is the event for the memory and storage industry. It is the one-stop place to catch up on the latest technologies, see the hottest products, and learn about what’s happening and where the latest trends… Read More
In an era defined by digital transformation and data-intensive applications, the solid-state device (SSD) market has emerged as a critical player in reshaping storage solutions. While there are several types of non-volatile memories, each with its own unique characteristics and use cases, Flash memory is increasingly overtaking… Read More
Embedded memory makes computing applications run faster. In the early days of the semiconductor industry, the desire to utilize large amount of on-chip memory was limited by cost, manufacturing difficulties and technology mismatches between logic and memory circuit implementations. Since then, advancements in semiconductor… Read More
It should not come as a surprise that the vast majority of IoT devices are insecure. As an indication, one survey estimates that 98% of IoT traffic is unencrypted. It’s not hard to understand why. Many such devices are cost-sensitive, designing security into a product is hard, buyers aren’t prepared to pay a premium for security … Read More
Why Attend Flash Memory Summit?
FMS is the best networking opportunity in the storage industry!
The 2022 conference is expanding beyond flash memory to address all forms of high performance memory. Summit organizers welcome your submissions on a range of memory technologies including NAND Flash, DRAM, MRAM, ReRAM, and DNA storage.… Read More
At the 2021 VLSI Technology Symposium, Imec presented on Ruthenium (Ru) and Molybdenum (Mo) as alternate Word Line (WL) materials for 3D NAND Flash “First Demonstration of Ruthenium and Molybdenum Word lines Integrated into 40nm Pitch 3D NAND Memory Devices”. I had an opportunity to interview one of the authors: Maarten Rosmeulen.… Read More
When I started dabbling in hardware again for fun using Arduinos about five years ago, it had been a long time since I had played with microprocessor chips. The epiphany for me was seeing how easy it was to load programs onto the onboard flash on something like an Atmel AVR using the SPI interface. My previous experience decades early… Read More
18 months ago Renesas announced they were prototyping their SG-MONOS eFlash on 28nm, and at the time we said it would be a couple of years before actual product. Yesterday, Renesas revealed their partner in this effort is TSMC – no surprise – and hinted things are moving, with better performance than expected but on a longer qualification… Read More
In a consolidating semiconductor business environment and innovation in semiconductor fabrication already scaling new heights with existing strong players, where do you think the wafer capacity should concentrate? It’s pure-play foundries or pure-play-like foundries, and those who supply high-volume common components… Read More
When first interested in computers while I was in junior high school in the early 70’s I remember seeing a core memory board for the first time. It was a seriously large circuit board with a myriad of wires woven across it going through the tiny metal doughnuts that stored the bit values. The computers it went into only had a total of around… Read More
