JEDEC turns focus on standardization of non-volatile wireless memory The JEDEC Solid State Technology Association’s JC-64 Committee for Embedded Memory Storage and Removable Memory Cards has formed a subcommittee focused on the standardization of non-volatile wireless memory.
To be chaired by Nokia and vice-chaired by Micron Technology and Samsung Semiconductor, the JC-64.9 Subcommittee for Wireless Memory is welcoming interested companies worldwide to participate.

Wireless memory is rapidly emerging as the next generation in data transfer technology, and is intended to enable fast, wireless connectivity with read/write capability between mobile devices (Wireless Memory Hosts) and battery-free memory tags (Wireless Memory Tags).

“There is currently no standard for this type of high speed, low power wireless data transfer,” said Hannu Kauppinen, Head of Nokia Research Center. “Creating a standard is essential to enabling manufacturing, distribution and retail businesses to benefit from the 100+ Mbit/s transfer rates achieved at close proximity, using very low power wireless memory. It will also enable consumers to enjoy new, fast wireless experiences, such as downloading a music album in under 10 seconds in a store.”

John Kelly, JEDEC President, added, “The new wireless memory activity in JC-64 is part of an ongoing effort within JEDEC to extend memory technologies to meet the industry’s need for innovative solutions that best meet enterprise and consumer demands.”
