Feast or famine. that's pretty much as it's always been. however, I can never seem to need more memory when it's famine time....

Absolutely. Now they can enjoy a big year and then build a bunch of fabs to get back into a state of severe overcapacity. But maybe with fewer players, it might be different this time? Maybe?

It usually works that way (e.g., Intel never lost money, even in downturns, as it dominated the MPU marketplace).  With no new startups entering the DRAM field to crash prices and go after marketshare, at least the leaders in DRAM (Samsung, Hynix, and Micron) should be able to make some money now.  It really has been a long time coming!

Thanks Bill for your reply.

 

So it is not per Gb or something as we see in standard  market research reports.  Still, the trend you captured is impressive.  Wonder if the oligopoly will lead to profitable DRAM business for years to come!!

The historical ASPs are from WSTS which is takes the total DRAM market divided by total DRAM units shipped, so essentially it is a blend of all DRAM densities.  The DRAM sales and unit shipment data comes from DRAM suppliers so it is really contract pricing and not spot market pricing.

Can you clarify if this is ASP/Gb or ASP/2Gb? Also, is this SPOT or Contract and Commodity or mobile  or some blended average?

 

Thanks

@mcgrathsylan: Yes. The article is from the future.

 

I just feel sorry for poor old "X-REL Emmanuel" who has now been deleted from this timeline. I wonder what his/her replacement will be like (hopefully not quite so observant :-)

My mistake, which has now been corrected. Thanks for pointing out my error (and for having such a good time with it).

Someone obviously slipped up here ... there is a directive at EE Times that nobody should post articles from the future, because this would reveal our awesome power ... now we will have to make you "dissapear" in this timeline (sorry :-)

Here's some more insight on mobile memory from elsewhere on the EET site: Industry View: Doug Wong of Toshiba on the Future of Memory

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.
