As projected, memory chip density has been quadrupling every two years and since an ISSCC panel assessed the road ahead for the 4K RAM, four years ago, this factor has become acute. As each new generation of memory chips is introduced, the time required to develop components for production, usable in real systems, is steadily increasing. As 64K RAM prototypes begin to emerge, we find that the approaches taken by different design groups are much more diverse, than those involved in 16K processing. Technology c…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
