I would disagree @goafrit. $86M seems cheap to me and FRAM technology holds lots of promise. I don't think Samsung has FRAM development in house although I could be wrong...Kris

Psoc is uses flash to store code and system configuration. Using fram instead of flash could enable: 1. lower power 2. instead of optimizing memory size for 2 both ram and flash size,use one memory and let designer use it as it will. this will enable smaller size, less need for psoc variations and easier and more varied use. 3. write speed is much faster for fram, which enables faster reconfiguration. might enable better ways to design stuff. 4. higher fram endurace.

Not a smart move. Non-volatile memory business is Samsung world and in this commoditized sector, going in is simply not a good move. Also, Ramtron does not have great IPs to start with.

Ramtron, you need to resist with all your might. You do not want to become part of Cypress. Run for your life! That place is weird and a total misery pit.

Would a PSoC with Ramtron technology be a compelling product? Where else would Cypress use FRAM technology (other than just memory chips)?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
