Current trends in the semiconductor industry emphasize the inherent business and engineering risks associated with the development and production of a new chip. With very low incremental costs for implementing personalization design elements into system architectures, designers and technology leaders are now realizing tremendous value.

In this paper, methods are discussed that illustrate the opportunities for reducing costs and maximizing economic value with new trends in system architectures. These system architecture trends are enabled by the availability of high density Logic NVM memory solutions.
