Most memory module standards have not been specified with particular reference to extreme environments where shock and vibration may present significant risk. Rather, designers have had to use a number of workaround techniques, strapping or even directly soldering devices to the board. In addition, the drive toward smaller board sizes is presenting a number of [...]

Lane Mason Marc Greenberg DDR3 DRAMs still languish around the edges of the market despite their supposed attraction in terms of power and performance, the widespread availability of product, and the presence of a supposedly ‘evolved’ ecosystem and implementation infrastructure. Just over 18 months ago, Intel launched a major Go To DDR3 market initiative at […]

Since the early 1980s,most of the semiconductor business has been enthralled by the microprocessor, the PC and commodity DRAMs. For all the talk of potential ‘better markets’ and ‘more profitable businesses to be in’, PCs and their brethren came to represent 35- 40% of the industry’s output. They constituted the prime platform for not only […]
