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?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
