New ReRAM chip consumes 50-100 times less power for IoT

Lucas Mearian | Feb. 24, 2016
By 2020, there will be 20.8 billion IoT devices requiring high speed, low power storage.

"These sensor nodes have very different requirements than your cell phone," Intrater said. "You don't need a processor with gigahertz speeds or high memory capacities. What they do need is intelligent integration and low power consumption."

A sensor in a building is in sleep mode 90% of time, but then it wakes up and reads environmental temperature, stores the data locally for a period of time and then goes back to sleep. Every so often, the  data is streamed out to a central "smart" HVAC system.

Adesto's Moneta products are available now as samples for device manufacturers. The family includes a range of four densities: 32Kbit, 64Kbit, 128Kbit, and 256Kbit devices

"Samsung shipped PCM (or PRAM) in a cell phone a number of years ago," Handy said. ""If you don't call PCM a ReRAM, then Adesto is the only company now selling product."
