EETIMES – June 10, 2014 – TORONTO — The Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable devices are putting even more pressure on memory to consume less power — even beyond the requirements of today’s smartphones and tablets. They also have other specific needs, depending on the use-case.
Requirements vary significantly with IoT, according to Hung Vuong, chairman of JEDEC’s JC-42.6 Subcommittee for Low Power Memories. Criteria such as packaging and size, integration, interface, low power, low voltage, density, performance, and temperature are all factors. Beyond smartphones and tablets, there are consistent needs driving demand for lower power memory from all industries, he says, including the automotive and the wearables industry, albeit to different degrees.View all Press Releases
