Memory Solutions for the Internet of Things and Beyond

Almost every "Thing"—from wearable devices to industrial machinery, to cars, homes, and personal electronics—is becoming intelligent and getting connected to other “Things” via the Internet. Memory is the common denominator among these “Things”, and can be found in millions of connected devices throughout the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Industrial IoT (IIoT) is transforming the world of manufacturing, extending automation and connectivity beyond traditional factory walls and into a wide range of verticals. It is estimated 20 billion+ new smart connected devices will be deployed over the next decade.

Micron’s Industrial Quotient (IQ)

Industrial Quotient (IQ) is all about making intelligent choices for your industrial product design that not only help you to meet the functional product requirements, but ensure the long term reliability and quality of your designs, in wide range of rugged/industrial use cases, while keeping simple the product life cycle management.  For every dollar spent on an industrial device, over ten dollars will be spent on developing software and business services around it.  It becomes even more critical to make right design choices upfront, and not let hardware field or lifecycle issues get in the way of business performance.

IQ Matters

IQ Matters reflects the mindset that the electronic components and storage solutions you select up front in the design process matters to your long term success.  This would include application specific firmware tuning, ruggedized products qualifications, temperature reliability testing, extended product availability to more efficiently manage your hardware product line, minimize costly field failures and maintenance downtime, and in turn drive down the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Micron has been a trusted advisor to our Embedded customers for over 25 years. We truly understand the unique needs of this market and have developed deep application level expertise, and a portfolio designed with application-tailored reliability, quality, performance and longevity in mind.  Most importantly, we bring to the market a mindset to deliver sustainable value to our customers—because we firmly believe that IQ Matters in our customers’ success.

By definition, edge computing is pushing the frontier of computing applications, data, and services away from centralized nodes to the logical extremes of a network. It enables analytics and knowledge generation to occur at the source of the data. This approach requires leveraging resources that may not be continuously connected to a network and as such needs a storage...

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...

The need for reprogrammable external memory has always existed and this hasn't changed with modern day computing. In years past, Parallel EEPROM used to be the non-volatile external storage solution of choice - primarily used to store boot code, program code, configuration and data storage. SRAM was used as an external storage solution to store working memory. This...

Join us Thursday, February 25, at 11 a.m. PST for our webinar called A Managed NAND Flash Guide to the Industrial Galaxy. We will discuss memory trends in the industrial segment and how Micron® e.MMC and SSDs are enabling this industrial revolution.

Blog

For most people, a wearable is synonymous with a smartwatch or a fitness monitor, devices that have grown over the years into mature products. While there continues to be room for innovation in each of these device categories, both have “crossed the chasm” – a marketing concept first coined by Geoffrey A. Moore in 1991. In simple terms, this concept refers to products that...
