Memory for Every G

          Accelerating the 5G experience

          5G is expected to make data access many times faster and interconnect increasingly more devices. From better health care technology through Internet of Things (IoT) to advances in AI-powered mobile photography — Micron memory and storage will drive 5G innovation.

          Micron Memory Is at the Heart of 5G

          Better 5G Built From Better Memory

          5G is incredibly complex, with technical challenges that must be solved across the entire ecosystem. Micron is bringing everything from low-power-consumption DRAM to application-specific multichip packages to help solve that complexity.

          Solve 5G Data Challenges at the Edge

          As 5G dramatically increases the amount of data we use, generate and store, computing power must continue expanding to the physical network and devices at the edge. With this expansion will come data challenges that require advanced memory and storage to solve.

          The Future Runs on Mobile Memory

          In this podcast, Raj Talluri shares his views on the future of mobile and the possibilities of 5G.

          "There is more AI and machine learning in the [smartphone] camera than in many other devices. If the phone can detect what it’s taking a picture of, it can produce a much better picture."
