Low Power Memory for IoT Wearables and Portable Medical Devices
Power consumption is critical in today’s embedded systems. Emerging low power applications include battery-powered Internet of Things (IoT) sensor nodes, wearables, and medical electronic devices that are power and energy-constrained. With the ultimate goal to reduce overall system power and increase battery life, these applications rely heavily on low power processors and energy-efficient memory solutions. The memory requirement can be fulfilled by several memory technologies available in the market. Each of these technologies have unique advantages. Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM) is finding its way into more applications, because of its instant non-volatility, low operating power, fast write speed and high endurance.
