Five Trends That Will Shape the Future Semiconductor Technology Landscape

Is Moore’s Law still alive, and which applications will benefit from ultra-scaled technologies? How will data centers cope with the overwhelming amount of data? And will we be able to break the memory wall in traditional Von Neumann computing architectures?

How COVID-19 is Impacting the Memory Industry

Heading into 2020 both the DRAM and NAND industries were projected to have turn-around years after suffering through much of 2018 and 2019. However, with the global lockdown triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic the outlook for the industry has changed considerably, and not all the change is for the worse. In this article we explore the impact on memory demand, how suppliers are expected to react to the pandemic, and the likely impact to pricing over the near-to-midterm.
