Samsung delivers 20mm x 16mm x 1.5mm 512GB SSD

image

Samsung says it has begun mass producing the industry’s first NVMe PCIe solid state drive (SSD) in a single BGA package. The new BGA NVMe SSD, named PM971-NVMe, contains all essential SSD components including NAND flash memory, DRAM and controller while delivering outstanding performance. “Samsung’s new BGA NVMe SSD triples the performance of a typical SATA SSD, in the smallest ...

SureCore SRAM IP runs at 20MHz on 0.6V

image

SureCore, the Sheffield low power SRAM IP specialist, says its ultra-low voltage SRAM IP operates at 0.6V on on TSMC’s 40nm ULP CMOS process, delivering from 20MHz at 0.6V to 300MHz at 1.21V. “Standard SRAM is not reliable below 0.9V, but SureCore’s single supply rail, Ultra-Low Voltage SRAM allows operating voltage to scale in tandem with the logic,” says SureCore ...

PiDrive from Western Digital gives Pi 300GB

Pi314 pidrive WD

Western Digital has produced a hard disk for the Raspberry Pi 3, the PiDrive. The USB-connected 300GB drive is 7mm tall and aligns, says Western Digital, “with Raspberry Pi’s USB data and power design to reduce the electrical power load of the hard drive on Raspberry Pi, while still maintaining sufficient performance to deliver maximum USB data transfer rate.” “Upon ...

SMIC to produce RRAM

image

SMIC is to manufacture Crossbar’s Resistive Random Access Memory (RRAM) for embedded applications like MCUs. SMIC will provide Crossbar RRAM blocks made on SMIC’ 40nm CMOS manufacturing process. This will enable customers to integrate low latency, high performance and low power embedded RRAM memory blocks into MCUs and SoCs. “Designers of highly integrated MCUs and SoCs need non-volatile memory technologies ...

Samsung launches 256GB V-NAND modules

image

Samsung says it is mass producing a 256GB UFS embedded memory capable of storing 47 full HD movies in a module smaller than a micro SD card. “By providing high-density UFS memory that is nearly twice as fast as a SATA SSD for PCs, we will contribute to a paradigm shift within the mobile data storage market,” says Samsung executive ...

Connected car needs big memory for big data, says Toshiba

02mar16Toshibaflash

Connected cars, with more on-board data processing, are increasing demand for automotive-qualified memory device and storage systems. How is memory technology adapting to this changing market, asks Volker Schumann The birth of automotive storage can be traced back the mid-90’s and the adoption of built-in car navigation systems in high-end cars. Since 1996, automotive specific hard disk-drives (HDDs) have steadily ...

Fujitsu samples Quad SPI FRAM

image

Fujitsu is sampling a Quad SPI FRAM. By using four bi-directional I/O pins, the  device can reach a data transfer rate of 54MByte/s at an operating frequency of 108MHz. Called MB85RQ4ML, it is over four times as fast as Fujitsu’s existing parallel 4Mbit FRAM device and outperforms the 45ns parallel SRAM, the company says. MB85RQ4ML is offered in an SOP-16 package – ...
