Good for Apple. Solid Stage Storage is no doubt an important components now and in the future. Endurance of NAND flash is a key to the future of computing. Apple has made a good step.

Fisr PA Semi and now Anobit. Apple will soon become becom semiconductor vendor and challenge Intel.

Nice one Apple but I never knew this NAND memory has good value for $390m. Thought this is a commodity business, but Apple is wiser.

Anobit got their payday. I'm sure that they are happy.

Probably Apple will stop Anobit from selling to others as a strategic move.

The NAND flash itself is. The controller that uses it isn't!

Did they stopped PA-Semi?

Smart move. They have the former PA-Semi engineers doing first the A4, then the A5 and most likely working on the A6, and now they have another hardware team with unique flash controller IP to extend the useful life of NAND flash. But this also raises an interesting question. A big part of Apple's sales come from its loyal fans who buy every new generation of Apple product, or perhaps every other new generation. What happens to all the older gen devices that still work perfectly -- still have useful flash memory life, useful battery life, etc.?

Most of the old iPhones are locked to AT&T and there is no unlock method for the current modem. When sold it looks like they re-flash the baseband and sell them as unlocked phones in India and China.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
