Lessons from Linley

Ryan Baxter   |   February 21, 2014   |   Events

Though I left Boise the morning of February 5 at 0-dark-hundred to catch a puddle-jumper down to SFO, my morning fatigue soon waned as I found myself standing under bright lights at a Hyatt Regency podium a little after 10 a.m. addressing a room full of engineers and system architects. This was my second appearance at the annual Linley Data Center Conference which was held in Santa Clara, CA February 5-6.  One of several conferences put on by the well-respected research group, this event co...

Accelerating System Bandwidth with Serial Memory Solutions Using Hybrid Memory Cube Technology

Jay Walstrum   |   January 29, 2014   |   All Products

For over 4 years, Micron and Altera have been collaborating on HMC technologies. This ongoing work led to the industry’s first demonstration of a working HMC controller, announced last September and demonstrated at the Supercomputing ’13 Conference in Denver. The working demonstration board consists of one Micron® HMC short reach (SR) device and four 28nm Altera Stratix V FPGAs, each of which has 40 GB/s of bandwidth for 160 GB/s of total bandwidth. This demonstration of Strati...

Micron's Chief Technologist Featured in EDN's Profiles in Design Series

Susan Platt   |   January 28, 2014   |   All Products

Last week, our very own Tom Pawlowski was featured in EDN's Profiles in Design series leading up to his keynote address at this year's DesignCon. If you're planning to attend DesignCon at the Santa Clara Convention Center (January 28–31), make a point to check out Tom's keynote presentation on emerging technologies. Tom is a fellow and chief technologist in Micron’s Architecture Development Group. He has participated in the creation or co-creation of numerous groundbreaking memory ar...

PCIe SSD Installation Is Easy: Part 2

Doug Rollins   |   January 15, 2014   |   All Products

In my last post, we debunked the myth that installing PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs is hard. In fact, it’s about as easy as turning a screw and counting to four. We’ve already turned the screw (see part 1), so now let’s finish up the installation in four easy steps. "Counting to Four" I’m using a Windows server in this example, but a Linux setup is easy too. Micron supplies the driver and a PCIe SSD management application in a single package. How cool is that?  So we&rsqu...

PCIe SSD Installation Is Easy: Part 1

Doug Rollins   |   January 8, 2014   |   All Products

PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs are like a good cup of French Roast coffee with a nice, fresh bagel on a crisp winter’s morning…when the sun’s just coming up over the horizon… Good stuff. So how on earth do coffee and bagels relate to SSDs? I can’t roast my own beans, but I like coffee; and I can’t make my own onion and garlic bagel from scratch, but I sure like it when the bagel shop does. We tend to think of PCIe SSDs in the same way. We know we can buy a system w...

Automata Processor: It’s Not Just About Speed and Power Consumption

Paul Dlugosch   |   December 19, 2013   |   All Products

At Supercomputing 13 (SC13), I participated in a discussion panel on the topic of reconfigurable computing.  One recurring theme expressed by the audience was disappointment that the industry is not moving more quickly toward exascale-class performance despite the fact that we have some very powerful CPUs, GPUs, and reconfigurable logic engaged in this effort.  Several panel members pointed to insufficient programmer productivity as the root of this problem.  In other words, ...

Addressing the tFAW Effect for DDR3

Troy Quick   |   December 17, 2013   |   All Products

Today we announced a solution for an intrinsic DDR3 timing constraint that has been impacting our customers’ system performance. This is great news for networking apps, where tRRD and tFAW timing specifications can restrict much-needed data throughput. Here’s a little background on the issue. Activation delay or tRRD is the amount of time that must elapse between two ACTIVATE commands being issued to different banks.  Four-bank activation window or tFAW is the amount of time i...

A Look Back at SC13

Richard Murphy   |   December 13, 2013   |   All Products

I attended this year’s Supercomputing Conference (SC13) a few weeks ago and have finally had a chance to sift through all the news announcements, technical sessions, and meeting notes to provide you with a few highlights. Our very own Todd Farrell gave an overview of HMC technology to conference-goers while Micron and Fujitsu announced the integration of our HMC technology into a supercomputer! I think this is a game-changing system design, which will provide flatter, more powerful memory ...

Standout Features of New Serial NOR

Massimo Fava   |   December 10, 2013   |   All Products

We’ve just released our latest 45nm Serial NOR MT25Q high-density product family that brings several benefits to embedded designs like set-top boxes (STBs), networking infrastructure equipment (routers), and industrial applications. Today, I’ll give a brief overview of two of these benefits. Instant Power-On Most of us have experienced the convenience of almost-instant device startup and wake from sleep when using our tablets and smartphones. And we only want more instant power-on ...

Automata Processing: Like Mining Gold From Seawater

Michael Leventhal   |   November 21, 2013   |   All Products

At last, my friends, my mother, and the rest of the world get to learn what I’ve been working on—in secret—since I came to Micron exactly three years ago. At the venerable Supercomputing Conference this week, Micron announced a technology that is extremely rare—even to experts immersed in the exotic world of the highest-performance computing systems on the planet. It’s a completely new way to compute, and I’ll tell you why.  Serial processors improve by ...
