Hi @Bert22306, thanks, but no, it's bits. Micron confirmed that once it went live as Bytes. It's a common error that people make with memory I've found (I use to freelance for a memory company). We live in a Byte world!

This is basically a 1GByte memory. The single chip with this level of density could definitely save a lot of board space.

I don't think so, Janine. The small "b" means "bit," while capital B means "byte" (8 bits). Total capacity of RAM is usually measured as the quantity of bytes it can hold, e.g. ASCII characters would be bytes, so it should be labeled as 8 GB, as you had it originally.

You can verify this in any number of places. Here are two examples.

You are correct. Error made in production. I'm fixing this now.

Should be Gb, not GB for the Micron part (not sure about the other).

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
