As artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) integrated into business operations, company reliance on the cloud is becoming stronger than ever. Modern networking equipment my allow for modular and automated updates to keep adapting.
SMARTsemi has added 2Gb x8/x16 DDR3 SDRAMs to its growing lineup of components for embedded automotive applications. The new devices are certified and tested to the AEC-Q100 specification and operate from -40°C up to 105°C and are found embedded in controls inside the cabin compartment including infotainment and navigation systems.
The past year has been challenging for memory suppliers. Independent analysts report that customer inventory levels have been depleting while demand has been increasing. Supplier production levels and capacity investments have been cut back.
Additionally, a new post-COVID supply/demand balance has been reached with price stabilization after price declines not seen in 15 years.
The Changing Market
Industry pundits forecast that suppliers will be slow to increase capacity as they need time to recover. DDR4 supply is expected to tighten as mainstream demand shifts to DDR5. And eMMC growth is expected to continue. Price increases are projected to resume and accelerate as we enter a period of undersupply by 2024.
