Don't know much about the NAND FLASH technology; But the first thought that occurs to me is the numbers of write/erase cycles that could be allowed for a NAND FLASH before it loses its capability for reliable operation. Is that number high enough as compared to DDR SDRAM? If FLASH is written/erased so frequently as like SDRAM how long it will last compared to a SDRAM?
Otherwise it will be great to have NV memory in place of the volatile memory...can get rid of batteries/super caps for implementing battery-backed memory.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
