RE shifting balance between DRAM and NAND - in response to current/forecasted growth in data requirements,server OEMs are aggressively modifying architectures to accommodate NAND and other emerging NVM in order to deal with the increasing power consumption of data centers.

Why is NOR revenue shrinking? Is it already being replaced by DRAM and NAND?

How do the units of memory (GB) storage sold compare between flash and DRAM? Is flash memory really taking over the market? Since flash is much more expensive, equal dollar sales do not equate to equal memory sales. Since flash memory suffers from limits on rewrite cycles, what is the likely balance in installed memory between the two technologies?

No, the way I read the above chart, DRAM revenue was $31.2 billion, while total flash revenue (both NAND and NOR) was $29.6 billion.

If you include both NAND and NOR flash, the revenue exceeded DRAM even before, right?

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
