The first, and least important, is the fact that the term SSD or solid state drive should never have been used and adopted. Drive? What drive? The term itself is an oxymoron. Solid state by definition: designating or pertaining to electronic devices, as transistors or crystals, that can control current without the use of...

Scaling Up for 3D Challenges

At Micron, we’re always excited by the rise of a new 3D semiconductor architecture. So much so that on December 11, I gave an overview and outlook of 3D memory solutions to a full house at the 11th annual 3D Architectures for Semiconductor Integration and Packing (3D ASIP) event—during San Francisco’s strongest winter storm in five years! Not even this mega storm could stop us from discussing the challenges that are slowing Moore’s law.

The Workloads, They Are a-Changin’

Do you remember what “workload” meant back in the day? It was work assigned to us, often via printed request forms stacked in a physical inbox on our desks. Boy, have times changed! For most of us today, our workloads don’t develop in the form of paper requests—but through email and digital request forms. And we humans are not the only ones with workloads. Keeping true to 21st century prophecies, our machines have huge, critical workloads too.
