3D Thursday: Micron to present Hybrid Memory Cube status at EDPS in Monterey, April 6—there’s a lot of news

I’ve already written many blog entries about the Micron Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC), a 3D stacked memory device that can deliver a theoretical DRAM bandwidth of 128Gbytes/sec to a host system using a 4-die stack of DRAM (NOT SDRAM) on … Continue reading
