So true is said by @Michael Lorello...many would look for some better simplified applications and other better stuff!!

I would definitely like to see memory technology like FRAM become more popular and cheaper. The benefits such as speed and EEPROM-like behavior such as byte-level modification but with orders of magnitude better endurance could greatly simplify applications that normally require wear-leveling and page-erase handling algorithms. Let's hope Cypress doesn't do anything to mess things up.

T.J Rodgers understands this market very well, I would not be surprised if he pulls off a sunpower with this deal.

Discrete SRAM market is a rapidly shrinking, even Samsung & NEC left the market, only GSI and Cypress are left. Cypress as company has issues, Ramtron is not a cure for this. Problems at company are large in scale around PSUC, PSUC is not a competitive product against fixed function MCU.

So, alternative memories remaining expensive and low-density is a self-fulfilling prophecy of the market? Or are these technologies (like FRAM) truly viable?

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses?
