When this technology is applied to the second generation Digital Annealer, it is expected to be capable of handling problems up to 100 Kbits in size.
In the first model (see Table 4), given that PWRT and KBIT (vocabulary subtest) consistently correlated with PROLEC-C, these variables were selected as the most likely predictors of the PROLEC-C reading comprehension measures.
The study indicated a positive correlation of .96 between academic improvement and the KBIT ability scores.
"SST's 27 series MTP SuperFlash products, now offered in densities ranging from 256 Kbit to 2 Mbit, provide extra insurance and flexibility to the customer in case a program or code fix is required during manufacturing," said Kumar Prabhat, marketing manager at SST.
Duck's DK3 audio technology uses a proprietary form of adaptive delta modulation to digitize Red Book audio (44.1 kHz, 16-bit, stereo), compress it at a data rate of 132 kbits per second (better than 5:1), interleave it with video on a CD-ROM, and restore it.
The no-added mask MTP solutions are area-consuming, and usually limited to no more than a few tens of Kbits. Cost-efficient MTP solutions for middle-sized (< 1 Mbit) and large (> 1 Mbit) embedded memories are not available.
Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP) has announced an industry first by offering a 512 Kbit I2C serial EEPROM that fits into a standard 8-lead SOIC (.208) package.
The M50FW040 is a 4 Mbit Flash memory, organized as eight uniform 64 Kbit blocks, that performs the Firmware Hub (FWH) function, storing the system and video BIOS code and interfacing with other Hub Architecture devices via the Firmware Hub high speed interface protocol.
The model STTS424 is a stand-alone digital temperature sensor, while the STTS424E02 integrates the temperature sensor with a 2 Kbit serial presence detect EEPROM that is used on DIMMs to store timing parameters and other information about the module.
SST's SPI (serial peripheral interface) serial flash family will initially consist of three products: the SST45VF512, a 512 Kbit device, the SST45VF010, a 1 Mbit device, and the SST45VF020, a 2 Mbit device.
This development kit serves the company's AT88SCxxxxC family of cryptographic memories, covering EEPROM densities from 1 Kbit to 256 Kbits.
