M600 SSD’s Dynamic Write Acceleration Boosts Performance and Value

Jon Tanguy   |   September 16, 2014   |   Storage

Micron M600 SSD for Client Computing and Ultrathin Laptops

Along with our release of the new M600 SSD for the client computing market, we are very excited to introduce a new feature called dynamic write acceleration. Dynamic write acceleration is the most efficient method of managing the SSD’s NAND media; it optimizes performance while delivering maximum value to the end user. In this post, I’ll provide a little background on what it does and why it’s needed.

Optimizing High-speed, Embedded Memory Interface Designs

Steve Durnal   |   March 8, 2013   |   All Products

On March 4, ECN published an article that I wrote where I address considerations in high-speed bus designs for a healthy “data eye.” Read the full article below: Optimizing High-speed, Embedded Memory Interface Designs Designers of energy-efficient, high-speed memory subsystems for small form factor or power-sensitive embedded and wireless products are often making the shift from traditional DDR2/DDR3 to low power (LP) DDR2/DDR3 memory solutions. This is largely in response to the ev...

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 ...

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...

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...

Look Out Laptops; Ultrathins are Moving In

Kris Kido   |   November 28, 2012   |   All Products

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...

PCM—Agent of Change for Future Architectures

Valentina Arrigoni   |   September 17, 2012   |   Memory

It’s no secret in the memory industry that existing technologies are running into scaling issues. As we all know, the problem is in the physics. But so is the solution, and that’s why we’re excited that The Economist’s Technology Quarterly took notice of phase change memory (PCM)—the emerging technology that the publication posits as being poised to “lead to a radical shift in computer design.” PCM’s bit-alterability, fast random reads, low power c...

Is Bandwidth per Watt Important to You?

Steven King   |   June 17, 2011   |   Memory

Today’s networking OEMs face the challenging task of designing for seemingly opposite goals—high performance in an energy-conscious “green” environment. The EPA estimates* that in 2006 the nation’s servers and data centers used about 1.5% of the total U.S. electricity consumption—a whopping 61 billion kilowatt hours (kWh)—at a cost of $4.5 billion. In 2011 these figures could nearly double, reaching more than 100 billion kWh, at a staggering annual cost...

For Anyone Who’s Ever Tried to Compare SSDs…

Steve Janzen   |   March 29, 2011   |   Storage

Micron's Senior Applications Engineer, Doug Rollins, is participating in Storage Switzerland’s “How to Compare SSDs” webinar this Wednesday, March 30. Doug will talk about the importance of establishing "specsmanship"—or industry-standard terms and tests—for SSDs. Listen in as he debunks SSD myths, defines important SSD terms, and highlights standardized testing methodologies that work. Register today to attend the Webinar on Wednesday, March 30 at 11:00 a.m. EST.
