Technology and Market Reports


Convergent Semiconductors

Edison Labs and Convergent Semiconductors have jointly developed a series of technology reports on Hybrid Memory. Hybrid memory is a new memory category that includes devices that can act as stand-alone memory devices, as logic, processor or analog devices or both at the same time. These reports explore this emerging device category, market impact product categories and applications.

Service 1: Hybrid Memory (HM) Technology

These reports explore the emerging Semiconductor category of Hybrid Memory (HM). These devices are able to continue to act both as a stand-alone memory component or a device with Memory and other logic/processing/and analog functions. These reports provide an overview to this new category and explore in detail how HM devices can impact a diverse set of semiconductor device markets. Since HM devices are so new, a series of 4 stages of HM devices are defined, and the properties of these stages explored.

Service 3. New Memory Technology Applications

New memory technologies are rapidly entering the market for the first time in several decades. As these memories become available Hybrid Memory devices offer the platforms for early adoption of the new Memory technologies, by reducing risk and enabling niche markets to trial the technologies before broad market adoption. HM devices also offer new methods for IP licensing, and new business models for the emerging memory Companies. Applications and System architectures will also be transformed as HM devices change what is possible when designing electronic products. These reports cover a number of key topics in this area.
