SANTA CLARA, Calif.--Memoir Systems, the startup memory ip company
that quietly changed CEOs earlier this year, is planning a new
product launch later this year to expand beyond its role as a
specialized solution provider to huge systems companies such as IBM.
"Memory is a ubiquitous problem," co-founder and new CEO Sundar Iyer
said in a recent interview here at company headquarters, which looms
high above its next-door neighbor, Intel. "The platform we're
building is a clean way to solve performance, area and power issues.
We want to open this up and allow customers to innovate and make it
about them, rather than us."
To date, Memoir
has touted the benefits of its Algorithmic Memory approach to
design. Memoir’s algorithms increase the performance of existing
memory macros by implementing a variety of techniques such as
caching, virtualization, pipelining, and data encoding.
Last fall, Memoir Memoir Systems announced
the availability of its Renaissance 4X product, which it
claims increases the memory performance of existing embedded memory
macros by delivering up to a 4X increase in memory operations per
second (MOPS). The company has since rolled an 8X product.
