MEMCON 2009 Defines Memory Advancements
June 25th, 2009 by Graham Bell
Denali is the sponsor of MEMCON 2009, which going on this week in Santa Clara. I spoke with David Lin at Denali regarding the conference and what some of the announcements will be. In particular we talked about the DDR-PHY Interface (DFI) spec version 2.1 (at the www.ddr-phy.org wb-site). It includes low-power features supporting DDR3 and the newly released LP-DDR2 memory technologies from JEDEC. As well, at MEMCON, is a track on “Beyond Flash – Defining Storage Class Memories (SCM),” sponsored by Web-Feet Research (now that’s a name you can remember!).
You can here the entire interview at: “MEMCON News”, Dave Lin, VP of Marketing, Denali
What I found most interesting about Storage Class Memories is that the vision for the future is to have a memory system that has a file interface but with the speed and performance of fast silicon. Smaller system stacks and lower power are some of the claimed benefits.
If you couldn’t attend the conference, you can see the picture gallery of the exhibits and luncheon at: MEMCON Exhibits.
