Demystifying Non-volatile Memory IP

Authored on: Apr 20, 2011 by Craig Zajac

Technical Paper

More InfoLess Info
As the use of non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP) expands beyond traditional embedded flash applications, an entirely new audience of designers is integrating NVM. For these new users, there are various NVM IP usage models and solutions currently available that are optimized to meet the requirements of these different applications. When selecting the right NVM IP solution, designers must take into consideration the specifications associated with the NVM IP as well as its nuances and overall impact on the system-on-chip (SoC) design.

Basically ignoring FeRAM/FRAM and MRAM, which is superior to ordinary FLASH regarding endurance and speed, does not meet my expectations! Regards, Kurt.

I think that since this paper discusses NVM embedded in an SoC, which implies (to me), using a standard logic CMOS process, discussing FRAM and MRAM is irrelevant, since they require a special manufacturing process. Nir.

Actually Nir, FRAM is only slightly different from the CMOS fab process, and has been embedded on CMOS devices for years. http://www.ti.com/ww/en/mcu/fram_ultra_low_power_embedded_memory/fram_mcu_faqs.htm#12
