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...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

HMC Arrives Just in Time to Be Your New Standard for Memory Performance: Part 3

Tom Kinsley   |   November 20, 2013   |   All Products

Back again with part 3 of my blog series outlining the features and benefits of Micron’s HMC.  My last post covered HMC’s abstracted memory management, simplified and scalable interface, and superior performance.  Let’s finish up by discussing these additional key features: Uncomplicated Board Layout and Dense Package Our short-reach (SR) HMC device comes in two packages: the four-link, 31mm x 31mm package and the smaller two-link, 16mm x 19.5mm package, which are ea...

HMC Arrives Just in Time to Be Your New Standard for Memory Performance: Part 2

Tom Kinsley   |   November 14, 2013   |   All Products

In my last post, I touched on some obstacles of traditional memory for system designers and hinted at the reasons why so many companies have selected Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) as their new standard for memory performance. Here, let’s start to break down some of the key features—including abstracted memory,  unique interface, and superior performance—that make HMC such a breakthrough solution. Abstracted Memory Management and Communication The standard DDR4 data sheet excee...

Buzz from the Linley Tech Processor Conference – HMC and More

Jay Walstrum   |   October 31, 2013   |   All Products

The week before last, I traveled 20 minutes down Highway 101 from Micron’s San Jose offices to Santa Clara to attend the 7th Annual Linley Tech Processor Conference. The small (just over 400 participants), two-day event was like a breath of fresh air compared to some of the more massive conferences that I’ve attended. There were some targeted OEMs and a smattering of industry media, but most of the attendees were real engineers trying to solve real problems. The keynote session cover...

HMC Arrives Just in Time to Be Your New Standard for Memory Performance

Tom Kinsley   |   September 25, 2013   |   All Products

Hybrid Memory Cube

Time-to-market and the ability to “tweak” an existing design to achieve that next level of performance are paramount for system architects, board designers, layout engineers, and others responsible for developing high-performance, cost-sensitive, dependable systems. But if you’re reading this, you understand the frustrations and challenges in trying to meet those goals with traditional memory options. The design-to-market time requirements vary greatly by industry but are all ...
