What is an AVR microcontroller?AVR microcontroller is an enhanced 8-bit and built-in Flash RISC order set developed by ATMEL. Compared with CISC, RISC is not just to reduce the command simply, but make the structure of the computer more simple and reasonable to improve the speed of the operation. The design absorbs the advantages of 8051 and PIC microcontroller, and has the ability to execute one instruction in a single clock cycle. The speed can reach 1Mips/MHz. AVR microcontrollers are widely  ...
How much do you really know about memory, or RAM and ROM specifically? Here we will tell them in different aspects, this article will act as a guide to basic memories.RAM | ROMROM and RAM belong to the semiconductor memory. ROM is the abbreviation of read only memory, and RAM is the abbreviation of random access memory. ROM can keep data when the system powers off, and RAM is in the opposite, a typical RAM is the computer memory.RAM | Two Major CategoriesRAM Upgrade Guide - What You Need to Know ...
Warm hints: The word in this article is about 3000 words and  reading time is about 16 minutes.SummaryNowadays, solid state drives are used in many fields. In this article, we will make a complete guide to solid state drives. Solid State Drive, also called solid state disk or SSD, is a hard disk made from an array of solid-state electronic memory chips, consisting of a control unit and a memory unit (FLASH chips / DRAM chips). It is widely used in military, vehicle, industrial control, ...
SummaryAs the emergence of a range of electronic technologies appear,major changes in the design of real-time embedded systems like the internet of things,augmented reality,or artificial intelligence occurred. The unifying thread between all of them is a greater focus on the use of distributed systems coupled with a need for high performance to deal with the data they generate and consume.Different design directionThere are tensions that pull the engineering of real-time devices employing such t ...
SummaryRecently engineers discover the two-dimensional atomic sheets for memory storage when they were developing alternative ways to provide greater memory storage capacity on thiner computer chips. Most of us are curious about how engineers discover them?DiscoverA team of electrical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with Peking University scientists, has developed the thinnest memory storage device with dense memory capacity, paving the way for faster, smaller an ...
SummaryMemory is one of the most important part for electronics. Computers and Smartphones woludn't be nearly as useful without room for lots of apps,music and videos. Devices tend to store that  information in two ways: through electric fields (think of a flash drive) or through magnetic fields (like a computer’s spinning hard disk). Each method has advantages and disadvantages. However, in the future, our electronics could benefit from the best of each.There are some questions put by  ...
A device that turns light into sound has allowed researchers to capture lightning in a bottle, in a sense, slowing down the light beams enough so that they can be easily stored and manipulated.Researchers at the University of Sydney in Australia, have figured out how to turn a light wave into a sound wave, creating an acoustic memory that they say will help data centers save energy by eliminating some electrical connections between processors. They reported their work in a recent issue of Nature ...
An entirely new model of the way electrons are briefly trapped and released in tiny electronic devices suggests that a long-accepted, industry-wide view is just plain wrong about the way these captured electrons affect the behavior of hardware components such as flash memory cells.The model which devised by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (abbreviation NIST),a measurement standards laboratory, and a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerc ...

A Tomsk Polytechnic University study reveals how topological vortices found in low-dimensional materials can be both displaced and erased and restored again by the electrical field within nanoparticles. This may open exciting opportunities for memory devices or quantum computers in which information will be encrypted in the characteristics of topological vortices.(Vortices in nanoparticles exposed by the electrical field.

(Steve Cain is a senior research support specialist in the Integrated Electronics Engineering Center (IEEC) at Binghamton University. Credit: Jonathan Cohen/Binghamton University)While investigating mass transit accidents, especially in air travel, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) officials often rely on digital clues left behind in flash memories of any and all electronic devices—both personal and professional—at a crash site. With the physical forces and high-temperature fires assoc ...
Toshiba Memory has announced development of the world’s first BiCS FLASH three-dimensional (3D) flash memory utilising Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology with 3-bit-per-cell (triple-level cell, TLC) technology. Shipments of prototypes for development purposes started in June, and product samples are scheduled for release in the second half of 2017. The prototype of this ground-breaking device will be showcased at the 2017 Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California, United States, from Augu ...
