Does memory need more respect? Memory Designline Blog 2/27/2012 1 comment Like offensive linemen, memory performs an essential task but (like offensive linemen) it often only attracts attention when it fails.

Biting into exabytes Memory Designline Blog 2/7/2011 4 comments I am pretty geeky and live with a geeky family. We throw around the term Terabyte with some frequency here (really, we do). But exabyte? No. Never said that one before.

Seagate gaining bidders? Memory Designline Blog 11/28/2010 7 comments Do you think it is more logical for Seagate, one of the world's largest maker of hard drives, to be consolidated with one of the other big memory players (and its current rivals), or would you rather see Seagate remain an independent company?
HDD: not dead yet? Memory Designline Blog 11/4/2010 2 comments In the wake of all of the solid state drive SSD activity lately, I wasn't surprised to see another alternative make a bid for some attention.
Apple changing the game with memory Memory Designline Blog 10/21/2010 25 comments As a newly-minted Mac fan, I was happy to see the news this week that its new MacBook Air would be dropping the traditional hard drive for some nice solid-state flash memory ranging from 64 to 256GB.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
