The Key Foundations and Future of DRAM - Industry Standards - Click for Proceedings:
Jonathan Hinkle, Principal Researcher, Lenovo

Christian Gyllenskog, , Micron



Session Description:
DRAM is one of the core technologies required for all computing systems and most electronics in the world today. For many decades, DRAM has improved and met the needs of each generation of new technologies and workloads, while amazingly remaining drop-in compatible across suppliers. This has been accomplished through JEDEC, the global standards organization that leads the development of the industry's memory standards, including DRAM and NAND flash. With more than 3,000 volunteers representing over 300 member companies, JEDEC has been the key forum where companies have come together to decide and define the future for memory. This talk will provide an overview of the industry's key standards related to DRAM plus related implications for performance, power, and reliability, with a look back to where they've been and then forward to where things are going. It will highlight key technology initiatives that will be important to the industry and emerging trends for DRAM that will be critical to planning for the future.

Session Description:
It has been well-understood that the blockchain ecosystem is being grown up togive rise to an impactful change of the network infrastructure. In particular, theexpansion to metaverse, NFT, IoT, physical distributions, and/or smart usage ofeverything are extensively discussed. However, one may worry that thoseexpansions widen the border to face increased risk of cyber-attacks, thoughblockchain is powerful enough to prevent the manipulation of the history of datatransactions among assumed nodes (logical nodes) while secret keys areprotected. However, data is input from the external of the blockchain.Blockchain itself is neither a method to prove that assumed nodes are real andnor that to protect secret keys. For the trust data source, we may need tomonitor data sources and exclude it from the network as necessary. For theprotection of secret keys, it may be helpful that the functions of the master ID isdivided to plural replicas of an anonymized-ID share. The spoo'ng of datasources (physical nodes) and theft of secret keys may cause a similar problem.Thus, we can see that both secret keys and the connection to physical nodesshould be treated with especially. Nevertheless, someday, a fake tree will befound. A resilient reproduction of trees is also necessary. In this session, theseproblems will be discussed.

New Memory Architectures for AI - Click for Proceedings:
Steve Pawlowski, CVP, Advanced Memory Systems, Micron Technology



Session Description:
CXL is set to allow for a reinvention and mass expansion of form factors and solutions, and this has led to a wide array of options. This presentation will walk through how the DRAM DIMM is set to evolve into new form factors, but how selecting the right form factor is not a simple choice as there is no clear guidance for this important issue. We will show a few of the front runner form factors, and how the controller layout & packaging can vary dramatically based on the routing and solution choice. As such, there is a clear need for the industry to agree to at least a couple of the solutions (and their associated controllers) to help reduce cost, and to make CXL Memory Solutions successful.

Session Description:
The panel will address a range of sustainability topics being broad and wide, as well as narrow and deep. What are the top priorities a storage technology company should focus on (and in general, any electronics technology manufacturing company) to address regional and global sustainability objectives for carbon footprint, resource conservation, product reusability and longevity. For engineers designing storage device and system products, what are top considerations addressing circularity, sanitization, and power efficiency objectives. For CIOs who oversee and deploy IT infrastructure including storage, there are trade-offs and many decisions for selecting technology in-house and choosing service offerings that meet SLA and sustainability objectives. Panelists will reference relevant industry programs, policies, and regulations - where some are voluntary, some will become compulsory, and what lays ahead in the near-term.
