San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Able to provide ultra-fast memory, integrated Multimedia Cards (MEM) are rapidly deployed in mobile computing devices like the Android-based tablets, smartphones, digital book readers, digital cameras, navigation devices and portable terminals, among others. The evolution of embedded systems technologies have played a key role in enabling the eMMC memory architecture to be mounted directly on the circuit board. A eMMC solution typically includes multimedia card interface (MMC), a flash memory component, a flash memory controller with a HS-MMC driver software that controls the eMMC. Embedded memory solution, eMMC enables device manufacturers to reduce product development time and accelerate time-to-market rates. Integration of the component of the memory at the chip simplifies system design and integration and development saving valuable time engineering design.
The use of eMMC also helps to ensure the conformity of the product to the growing demand for greater memory densities . The eMMC memory architecture should attend a high adoption among memory chip designers, since the time to market (TTM) fast time-to-volume (TTV) and time goal profit (TTP) are essential keys to manufacturer competitiveness and customer satisfaction in the electronics industry. Extended data storage capacity; low power consumption; ability to increase memory density; low cost; compact seized; higher bandwidth of data transfer; and flexible configurability are the main benefits of eMMC solutions. The trend towards miniaturization will continue to drive the adoption of eMMC, given that the technology offers a perfect solution for high performance memory products with small form factors.
eMMC market growth will be fueled by technological developments that improve the functionality of the eMMC architecture. Currently developed and marketed is the integrated Multi-Chip Package (CGMP) Architecture memory that incorporates the integrated controller directly on the memory chip eliminating the need to develop separate software interface for NAND memory. PCMC provides the ability to meet the highly integrated modern mobile computing devices miniaturized memory requirements. A key advantage of the memory architecture comprises emcp space conservation, as it allows vertical stacking of a plurality of memory functions. Furthermore, ECP eliminates the need for separate memory expansion slot allowing the development of smaller and thinner devices. eMMC should attend the widespread adoption in low-end smartphones in the coming years as the technology moves up the value chain resulting from lower prices and better performance and functionality. A key factor in the adoption of eMMC in low-end smartphones is the memory of the architecture’s ability to make these smart phones and significantly improve the relationship cost benefit ratio. higher transmission speeds of eMMC allow video and graphics capabilities of superior quality in low-end phones and separate eMMC controller reduces the load on the main processor thus improving the calculation speed no extra cost.
The growth of smartphone sales should benefit the market for eMMC. Factors such as the ubiquity of the mobile Internet, features such as advanced messaging, email, web browsing, browsing, data streaming, and faster 3G / 4G create the need for higher density memory in smartphones. As the amount of data downloaded and stored increases, the demand for eMMC is expected to grow because of its superior memory management capabilities. Benefits such as low cost of advanced memory capacity, longer battery life and a simpler structure design can reduce production costs, promote eMMC adoption in smartphones and tablets. Manufacturers have already begun to incorporate 16GB / 32GB / 64GB eMMC in high-end smartphones and development is underway to accommodate eMMC on mid-range and low-end smartphones as well.
As stated by the new market research report on integrated multimedia card (eMMC) Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as fastest growing regional market with an expected CAGR of 28.4% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is led by strong economic growth, rising income levels, continuous development of cellular markets, increasing 3G penetration and spiraling sales of smartphones and tablets.
