New memory architectures combine nicely with the research into new filesystem architectures. Are these companies working with or at least tracking advances like ZFS? Both the Microsoft and the Linux / UNIX guys are doing some fairly sophisticated changes these days.
Good question. Commodity DRAM and NAND are by far the majority of the memory market, and are used in PCs (DIMMs), servers (DIMMs), SSDs and smartphones. The first three are built into modules, the smartphone is an entire market onto itself. UFS is a memory subsystem, not really a memory? What about all the other markets and the memories that they require?
Mentioning HMC in the same article as commodity memory is odd, it is an embedded memory, and can't be built onto a module. There are lots of other memories for embedded applications worth mentioning.
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.
