Micron, Samsung back JEDEC plan for wireless memory News & Analysis 4/13/2012 2 comments The JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, formerly known as the Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC), has announced that the JC-64 Committee for embedded memory storage and removable memory cards has formed a subcommittee focused on the standardization of non-volatile memory for wireless data transfers.
Silicon dioxide nanometal offers alternative ReRAM Research 4/3/2012 13 comments Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, led by Professor I-Wei Chen, have developed a resistive-switching memory device based on silicon dioxide. Professor Chen is due to present an update on the technology at a one-day symposium on emerging non-volatile memory technologies due to be held Friday, April 6 in Santa Clara, California.
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.
