I think Micron is going to have a tougher time in NOR now that Spansion is "back from the dead". EETimes just covered new charge-trapping solutions from Spansion and the performance is clocking Micron.

Micron going into NOR surprised many, since OTP is penetrating deeper into Mb scale.

OTP into deep Mb scale, NOR really a questionable choice for code storage...

As one astute reader observed, Micron's COO failed to mention the techno-Ponzi aka Phase Change Memory, yeah, yeah, the one supposedly commercialized by Numonyx in 2008. But who can blame him? After all, Micron already declared publicly in 2004 that PCM does not scale (having singed an exclusive royalty bearing license for the patents in PCM in 1994), and no product on the market (other than a couple of dvelopment boards) uses any PCM. So, what are the esteemed Mr. Atwood and Mr. Doller aka "Chief Ponzi Priests" going to do now?

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
