Majority of the requirements for technology featuring memory expansion cards that are utilized in consumer electronic devices and storage medium for the embedded systems are fulfilled by flash memories. According to Coherent Market Insights analysis, this technology has witnessed over 40% year-on-year growth over the last few years. However, owing to certain technological limitations that include flash memory’s finite life, incapability of the bit-by-bit data erasability and large power consumption, the utilization of the technology has been limited to particular environment conditions. However, utilization of 1T-MONOS (flash memory technology) in places where flash cannot be utilized, as proposed by the Renesas in February 2016, is expected to garner major traction over the forecast period.
Better reliability, performance and processing scalability is projected to provide strong growth prospects over the forecast period
One transistor metal oxide nitride oxide silicon (1T-MONOS) can be used to cater variety of purposes, specifically in automotive segments in conjunction with the CMOS and BiCDMOS, to optimize its power consumption and enhance program/erase (P/E) endurance. It is featured with operations at junction temperatures of 175°C with read/write endurance of over 100 million cycles. Moreover, as per Renesas results, 0.07mJ per 8 byte rewrite energy consumption was achieved on utilization of adaptable slope pulse control to weaken the electric fields and degrade memory cells. These features are anticipated to drive the global 1T-MONOS market over the coming years. Renesas Electronics Corporation introduced its 90 nm one-transistor MONOS in February 2016, is expected to lead the industry applications over the forecast period in the industry. Some of its key features include:
Also, the company has introduced prototypes of128 KB flash memory incorporated with 90nm 1T-MONOS flash memory featuring these properties which is expected to start its mass production in 2019.
1T-MONOS Market Taxonomy
On the basis of potential applications, the global 1T-MONOS market is classified into:
Increasing IoT applications and autonomous automotive will drive the industry growth through the forecast period
Utilization of connectivity and memory processing in almost every daily activity that includes agriculture, industry processes, and transportation among many other applications.
