Micron Technology Enablement Program Launched

Technology Enablement Program

Micron launched what they’re calling a Technology Enablement Program (TEP) for their still in development DDR5 DRAM sticks. We covered the expected specs of DDR5 when Micron announced that they’d begun sampling their new product in January. Micron has remained a major producer of semiconductor products, including DRAM (dynamic random-access memory) and flash drives.

Technology Enablement Program

Micron is trying to bring together a broad array of companies interested in the development and applications of DDR5 DRAM through their Technology Enablement Program (TEP). If successful, this will allow them to hit the ground running as soon as they begin mass production and shorten the time to market for this newest generation of random-access memory (RAM). Companies that enroll in the program will gain access to several advantages. The most important and exciting is early access to DDR5 component and module samples as they become available. TEP members will also have access to technical resources such as datasheets, electrical, thermal, and simulation models. All of this should help speed up commercial product development and platform design. Micron is looking beyond just technical development with their program. They are also looking to include retailers, distributors, and even IP (intellectual property) resellers in their program.

So far, Micron has had the most success in attracting technical companies to participate in their Technology Enablement Program (TEP). Companies that are household names like Texas Instruments, Intel, and AMD have signed on. A random selection of other publicly known companies participating includes Ambarella, Lattice, NXP, Renesas, and XILINX. A full list of participating companies is available on Micron’s website. At the time of writing, Micron had not yet attracted any retail partners at all. Cooperating IP companies are just Cadence and Synopsys.

Availability

Companies can join the TEP immediately.
