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).

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.

Serial NAND

“Embedded applications” has become an umbrella term for some of the most compelling devices available, including intelligent or interactive toys, books, and games; Web-enabled printers and computer peripherals; and backward-compatible WiMAX boxes. In the past, these embedded designs relied only on serial peripheral interface (SPI) NOR Flash for code shadowing, data storage, or storing BIOS and firmware. But as embedded applications continue to evolve and require more density, Serial NAND devices, with the lowest cost-per-megabit of any serial flash solution, offer the right option for them.

With four times or more the density of SPI NOR, Serial NAND is a great alternative to NOR for many embedded designs. And since Serial NAND has the lowest cost-per-megabit of any serial Flash solution, it’s also a great way to lower your BOM cost.
