PCM-based MCPs take cell phone performance to the next level

PCM (PCM) in the mobile handset market is a game-changer because of its performance, software simplification, and reliability. Cell phones today have enabled NAND-Based MCP solutions for read operations and random access capabilities; however, Micron’s PCM-based MCP solution will enable cell phone users to enjoy new experiences. “Instant-on” is becoming a reality thanks to the performance of Micron’s PCM and low-power double data rate mobile DRAM (Mobile LPDRAM) combined into a single package—now your phone will be able to read data (booting your phone up) up to 400 MB/s, much faster than most phones today.

Memory subsystems within a cell phone are getting more and more complicated with all of the different types of data that needs to be managed; however, PCM is a nonvolatile memory with a LPDDR2 interface, greatly simplifying software management. PCM also has endurance of >100,000 cycles and doesn’t face the reliability challenges that floating-gate technology does as it moves to smaller lithography nodes. Micron’s PCM-based MCP solution is going to improve the cell experience for both end users and manufacturers.
