Improved Memory Throughput Using Serial NOR Flash Download White Paper 1Mo

NOR flash remains the preferred non-volatile technology for discrete memories in embedded systems. Today's NOR based SPI memories have reached 108MHz clock rates with a QuadIO (x4) interface to achieve a 54MB/s sustained read throughput while remaining compatible with the original interface specified nearly 25 years ago. The legacy SPI interface and bus protocol is reaching fundamental timing limits that will make difficult further increases to the SPI bus clock rate. This paper will describe both system level and memory device strategies that deal with these timing limitations allowing higher SPI bus throughputs.

This month, Novelda is giving away two full XeThru Inspiration kits worth 1499 US Dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to experiment first hand with its XeThru technology.

Based on the use of radio waves, rather than infrared, ultrasound or light, the company's X2M1000 Inspiration modules can detect presence just from the chest movement while breathing, and measure both the rate and depth of breathing, allowing breathing patterns to be tracked in real-time for a plethora of presence and health-care monitoring applications.
