Applications

Automotive memory is critical to many functions of vehicle applications, and it’s becoming increasingly important to partner with a trusted, long-term memory provider like Micron as vehicles become more feature-rich with innovations like these:

  • Infotainment: Delivering the highest possible performance in navigation, connectivity and entertainment.

  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS): Supporting safety-relevant features and assistance systems, supporting external sensors and managing complex algorithms, aiding communications, and ultimately enabling the future of autonomous driving.
  • Dashboard/Cluster: Replacing analog instruments in the dashboard with user-configurable displays and heads-up displays (HUDs), and guiding the potential fusion with infotainment.

  • Powertrain: Enabling functionality within engine and transmission control while meeting or exceeding the highest thermal requirements.

The experience for the driver is no longer about engine power and car size only. Nowadays drivers care about how they connect their mobile devices to the car and how the car can help to make driving safer and more convenient. This include not only their personal car, but also rental or shared vehicles.

“Beyond the practical benefits, autonomous cars could contribute $1.3 trillion in annual savings to the US economy alone, with global savings estimated at over $5.6 trillion,” wrote Ravi Shanker, Morgan Stanley lead analyst covering the North American auto and related industries, in a research note. For the US, it could represent 8% in annual GDP, the reallocation of which...

Smaller, faster, cheaper – This is the tenet of most companies designing consumer devices for a few decades now. Every component being designed-in is scrutinized to keep the device form factor small without compromising performance and cost. To push the envelope around overall system performance, memories need to be fast, dense and tiny too. As the performance metrics of...

MCP’s or Multi Chip Packages as they are commonly referred to in the memory industry, are single packages with multiple memory devices inside. While the traditional definition of an MCP could include packages with multiple die of the same technology (like DRAM, NOR or NAND), typically used to attain higher densities, the definition has expanded to include packages that...

Ripped from the pages of a science-fiction book, self-driving vehicles will soon be in our driveways instead of strictly in our imaginations. I was recently asked if I would be willing to do an interview for a middle school student’s school project. It was a neat chance for me to discuss what truly excites me about self-driving cars and how Micron plays a role in making them...
