Many people face a lot of issues with memory space. Whether it is memory space on phones, tablets and anything really. A lot of people have a lot of memories such as pictured and music and so on their phone. many enjoy looking through old pics and listen to older music they used to listen to. But unfortunately, there is not enough memory space for a lot of the things on phones. Usually the data fills up quickly especially with a lot of the applications that can be downloaded on the phones.

SanDisk knew of people’s issues and realized the inconveniency of this. Therefore they have launched a new high capacity Mobil memory solutions. Solution number one is the SanDisk Ultra microSDCX UHS-I card, they have transfer speeds for up to 95MB/s this memory card can hold up to 10 high quality video recording. It is waterproof, shockproof, X-ray proof and temperature proof. the second solution to this memory problem is the SanDisk Ultra Dual drive m3.0.  this one is a flash drive the is designed for Android smartphones and tablets. It features on the Go USB support.

It also lets users share files between their electronics such as android devices and laptop computers. Through this flash drive many users can view, access, and back up files from their phone memory in the SanDisk memory app. This app is available for free for everyone that wants to download it which makes it very convenient for users this also can have up a lot of time for user. This will be available only on Amazon which is a great site for inline shopping and it is a much more convenient way so people do not have to go and buy from the store. That way they can save time. other than all the great descriptions. They are offering a 5-year warranty which will be very convenient for people. offering reliable products is always a good addition.

In June 2015, NASA announced that they have teamed up with Microsoft to develop a new project called Sidekick which will use commercial technology to empower astronauts on the International Space Station. The goal of Sidekick is to enable station crews with assistance whenever and wherever they need it. It will use Microsoft HoloLens to provide virtual aid to astronauts working off the Earth, for the Earth. This new capability has the potential to reduce crew training requirements and increase the efficiency at which astronauts can work in space.

Sam Scimemi, director of the ISS program at NASA Headquarters in Washington, is looking forward to the collaboration with Microsoft. He said in a statement: “HoloLens and other virtual and mixed reality devices are cutting edge technologies that could help drive future exploration and provide new capabilities to the men and women conducting critical science on the International Space Station. This new technology could also empower future explorers requiring greater autonomy on the journey to Mars.”

Alex Kipman, technical fellow of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, is proud of their HoloLens product and is excited that NASA has chosen to team up with them. “Microsoft HoloLens is about transforming the ways you create, connect, and explore,” he said in a statement. “Sidekick is a prime example of an application for which we envisioned HoloLens being used - unlocking new potential for astronauts and giving us all a new perspective on what is possible with holographic computing."

Both NASA and Microsoft engineers have been testing Project Sidekick and the Microsoft HoloLens aboard NASA’s Weightless Wonder C9 jet to ensure that they will function as expected in free-fall before they are delivered to the microgravity environment of the space station. Sidekick works in two ways: The first way, known as “Remote Expert Mode,” and via Skype, part of Microsoft, to allow a ground operator to see what a crew member sees, provide real-time guidance, and draw annotations into the crew member’s environment to coach him or her through a task. Previously, crew members relied on written and voice instructions when performing complex repair tasks or experiments.

The second mode is called “Procedure Mode,” which augments standalone procedures with animated holographic illustrations displayed on top of the objects with which the crew is interacting. This capability could reduce the amount of training that future crews will require and could be an invaluable resource for missions deep into our solar system, where communication delays complicate difficult operations.

After the devices are delivered to the space station, crew members will test and verify the software and hardware functionality in the standalone mode. A second set of devices to be delivered on a future mission will test and verify Sidekick functionality with network connectivity to test the Remote Expert Mode. NASA expects astronauts on the station to start utilizing Sidekick by the end of the year.

Founded in 2010, Crossbar is a new startup company that develops a class of non-volatile resistive random-access memory (RRAM) technology.

Although the company employs just over 20 people, Crossbar is the exclusive holder of resistive RAM patents from the University of Michigan.

With over 100 unique patents, 30 of which are currently issued. Crossbar RRAM memory will be able to deliver up to a terabyte of memory capacity on a small single chip the size of a postal stamp. Compared to the current best NAND Flash memory, Crossbar‘s RRAM write performance is 20 times faster, 20 times lower power consumption, and 10 times the endurance.

Resistive random access memory is a type of non-volatile random access computer memory that works by changing the resistance across a dielectric solid state material (memristor).

Only a few companies are developing this type of memory which is slowly gaining popularity is becoming the most likely to succeed current market standard memory products.

In comparison to current market Flash memory, RRAM is faster, bit-alterable, and is more energy efficient. This allows the modules use in both embedded and SSD uses on various platforms.

ASAP Semiconductor is a leading distributor of both current and obsolete parts. Please browse our selection at ASAP Memory, the memory-related inventory of ASAP Semiconductor. We carry a wide range of memory products from companies like Crossbar that may not be sold anymore.

On October 22nd the Korean Conglomerate company, Samsung Electronics, announced their mass production of their new DDR4 module. This new module will be the industry’s first 8 Gigabit DDR4 based on 20 nanometer process technology. With their target focused on the enterprise server market, the 20 nanometer 8 Gigabit DDR4 DRAM will provide high performance, density, and energy efficiency to meet the standards of next generation enterprise servers.

Speeds of this new module can reach a data transfer rate per pin speed of up to 2,400 megabits per second. This increase in speed is approximately 29 percent higher than the current standard of 1,866 DDR3 server modules. Other features include enhanced error correction and 1.2 volt power usage. Along with enterprise server modules, Samsung offer 20 nanometer based DRAMs which will be available for PCs and mobile devices.

Samsung is a South Korean multinational company that is most well-known for is electronic products and services.
