Micron 16nm NAND Awarded Semiconductor of the Year

Corporate Communication   |   July 31, 2014   |   Storage

Last week, Ramin Ghodsi and I had the honor of accepting TechInsights Semiconductor of the Year award on behalf of our process and product development teams. It’s the second time in a row our NAND process technology has won this award, and marks an important third-party recognition of our cell designs. TechInsights does an exceedingly thorough analysis of the semiconductor design—down to the cellular level—and chooses winners based on the innovation in the design and its impact on the marketplace.

Mono-what Counter?

Lance Dover   |   September 10, 2013   |   All Products

Today, we’ve released the industry’s first SPI Flash memory device available with an integrated replay-protected monotonic counter (RPMC). A what, you say? To understand what the RPMC is, you must first understand some of the fundamentals of cryptography. By practical and modern definition, cryptography is the secure transmission of information. By most metrics, it involves one or more basic characteristics associated with a transmitted message: privacy (confidentiality), integrity,...

It’s a Great Time to Work in Storage

  |   April 11, 2013   |   All Products

Flash is revolutionizing how we store data. It is the solution of choice for truly reliable portability in today’s popular smartphones and tablets, and it is gaining momentum as the “performance operator” in the data center. And these two applications are undeniably linked—as we demand more mobility and instant access, we need bigger, faster, and more efficient data centers to serve up the content. It’s an exciting time for us. As a start-to-finish developer of soli...

Looking to Save Space in Your Ultrathin Design?

Kris Kido   |   February 7, 2013   |   All Products

Single-Sided SODIMM

Today’s ultrathins are all about being the sleekest, lightest, and highest-performance devices available—and we have the DRAM solutions to help you get there. Let’s look at how Micron’s new DRAM form factors reduce system height and saves valuable board space. In an effort to further reduce z-height, a majority of ultrathin laptops have opted out of module form factors in favor of onboard DRAM. And while onboard DRAM is the best solution for z-height, modules bring an ele...

Transforming the Ultrathin Experience, Part 1

Ben Thiel   |   January 15, 2013   |   All Products

How do SSDs help your ultrathin be even more ultra-mobile? Two ways: form factor and power savings. In today’s era of portability, the days of lugging an 8 or 10lb laptop through the airport are over. SSDs come in slim, caseless, and lightweight form factors that take up less space, enabling even sleeker ultrathin designs. Our mSATA SSDs measure in at about one-third the size of a credit card, while our incredibly small M500 M.2 form factor is about the size of a stick of gum! Speaking of ...

M500 M.2 SSD – The Secret is Out

Matt Wokas   |   January 11, 2013   |   All Products

M500 M.2 SSD

Until now, SSDs have been limited to the same form factors as HDDs—but not for long. This spring, our M500 SSD will be available in the ultra-compact M.2 form factor, which is the size of a stick of gum. Built using our 20nm MLC NAND Flash, the M500 M.2 is offered in high capacities from 120–480GB. It also delivers strong performance, like fast boot and application load times and almost instant wake from sleep. We’re doing everything in our power to deliver an ideal solut...

DDR3L-RS: Reducing DRAM Power Consumption in Standby

Kris Kido   |   January 8, 2013   |   All Products

Standby power savings are becoming increasingly important as computing devices continue to shrink leaving less room for large batteries, and come loaded with advanced features such as instant-on and Microsoft’s Connected Standby. DDR3L-RS (formerly referred to as DDR3Lm) is the first mainstream PC DRAM with a focus on reducing IDD6, doing so by cutting in half the self refresh rate at room temperature (standby conditions) and by selecting lower IDD6 devices. First, TCSR (Temperature C...

Improving Ultrathin Boot Performance with Quad I/O

Redge Villanueva   |   January 2, 2013   |   All Products

Random Read Access Performance vs. Data Size

In today’s fast-paced world, consumers need faster system boot times in their ultrathin devices. But other advanced system features, like security, can interfere with boot-time performance targets, posing a challenge to ultrathin designers. The new quad I/O feature in Micron’s N25Q SPI NOR Flash memory can help. N25Q SPI NOR is the first in the market to support quad I/O mode at a 108 MHz clock rate, reaching read transfer rates up to 54 MB/s and improving read bandwidth up to 85% co...

Made for One Another: SSDs and Ultrathins

  |   December 19, 2012   |   All Products

As the landscape of personal and mobile computing continues to intersect, our storage devices are becoming smaller and lighter while boosting system performance and adding features. Ultrathin notebooks are a new breed of mobile devices that boast the portability of a tablet and the power of a laptop. The broad range of the target market, from business people to college students and even children, means that ”the inside” needs to be tough, versatile, and can’t compromise on spee...

Ultrathin Infographic

The brutal fight to stay relevant in the rapidly changing client computing market spurred CPU vendors and computer OEMs to rethink their approach to personal computing. They went back to the drawing board and began defining new form factors, energy-efficient processors and systems, and touch displays. The Intel-inspired Ultrabook™ devices are breaking new ground for powerful, sleek, power-efficient ultrathin laptops. ARM vendors, who traditionally played only in the mobile segment, have m...
