"The market research firm has ranked manufacturing companies by their installed capacity in four categories
Samsung leads followed by Intel, Toshiba/SanDisk, SK Hynix and Micron (see figure 2). The ranking reflects the significance of memory to production volumes, but not necessarily revenues."
How many metal layers do Intel CPU have compared to NAND and DRAM?
I figure 4X
A meaningless comparision
Interesting comparison. It would be more interesting to include market share and fab utilization numbers. Intel with greater than 15% semi market share and Samsung with less than 7% shows that having the most capacity does not translate into the most efficient utilization.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
