Memories for the Intelligent Internet of Things
Betty Prince, David Prince
A detailed, practical review of state-of-the-art implementations of memory in IoT hardware
As the Internet of Things (IoT) technology continues to evolve and become increasingly common across an array of specialized and consumer product applications, the demand on engineers to design new generations of flexible, low-cost, low power embedded memories into IoT hardware becomes ever greater. This book helps them meet that demand. Coauthored by a leading international expert and multiple patent holder, this book gets engineers up to speed on state-of-the-art implementations of memory in IoT hardware.
Memories for the Intelligent Internet of Things covers an array of common and cutting-edge IoT embedded memory implementations. Ultra-low-power memories for IoT devices-including plastic and polymer circuitry for specialized applications, such as medical electronics-are described. The authors explore microcontrollers with embedded memory used for smart control of a multitude of Internet devices. They also consider neuromorphic memories made in Ferroelectric RAM (FeRAM), Resistance RAM (ReRAM), and Magnetic RAM (MRAM) technologies to implement artificial intelligence (AI) for the collection, processing, and presentation of large quantities of data generated by IoT hardware. Throughout the focus is on memory technologies which are complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) compatible, including embedded floating gate and charge trapping EEPROM/Flash along with FeRAMS, FeFETs, MRAMs and ReRAMs.
