Recall from my last blog that I have a mantra – Let’s stop thinking about NVM as fast storage and start thinking about it as (slow) memory! Well it seems I am not alone in that thinking, as this premise was very well represented at the NVM Workshop organized by two of the research groups at UCSD.
PMC had the pleasure of being a Platinum Sponsor at this year’s event and I always consider this to be the technical counter-point to Flash Memory Summit. The event is a lot smaller than FMS but more technically orientated with a nice mix of industrial and academic speakers. I have been attending for three years now and always find it a great place to catch up on people’s research and meet graduate students (who might be persuaded to come work for PMC).
