About the book

Memory content in System-on-Chip (SoC) has been increasing dramatically over the last 5 years. In 2013, about 90% of the silicon area was occupied by memories with different functionality. Memory design is the key to system design which involves a number of considerations e.g. the operating system, the size, and the variability of the application processes. This largely determines the size of memory and how the memory will be addressed (real or virtual). The overwhelmingly increasing demand for both storage and computation necessitates revisiting the traditional memory subsystems used in processors and storage systems to take advantage of emerging memory technologies. This book intends to bring complete information about the logical design/operation, physical design/ operation, performance characteristics and resulting design trade-offs of the memory system.

This book also brings the research findings of the design techniques for energy-efficient and reliable memory systems as well as deals with material, device physical principles, challenges and opportunities related to the emerging memory device that can be exploited for a wide variety of applications. This book aims to cover how to tackle the challenges of optimization problems that result from the side-effects that can appear at any point in the entire memory design.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
