Embedded non-volatile memory is a small-sized chip used to meet a variety of embedded system application. It is primarily used in smart card, SIM card, microcontrollers, PMIC, and display driver IC for the purpose of data encryption, programming, trimming, identification, coding, and redundancy. Manufacturers focus on providing secured eNVMs for MCUs used in IoT-based devices.
Embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) is a significant technology advancement that has made modern computing systems faster and scalable. Compared to stand-alone flash memories, eNVM technologies have improved in-system re-programmability and made electronics designs more flexible.
COVID-19 scenario analysis:
The recent COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the global embedded display industry. The entire supply chain got disrupted due to limited supply of parts during the first quarter of 2020. The outbreak of COVID-19 resulted in lockdown measures, which included the shutdown of manufacturing facilities and warehouses and affected the global exports and shipments of various industries. Lockdown measures were announced in several countries across the globe as they got impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and led to fall in the domestic and export demand for consumer electronics, automotive vehicles, and other industrial equipment and devices in these countries. COVID-19 not only impacted the operations of various embedded memory companies, but also affected the businesses of their partners and distributers.
Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis
Compared to stand-alone flash memories, eNVM technologies have improved in system re-programmability and made electronics designs more flexible. The demand for improving the memory density in computers and the need for augmenting the performance of mobile terminals are key factors driving the growth of the embedded non-volatile memory market. The demand for low-voltage electronics products has further boosted the adoption of eNVM technologies. Some of the key applications of embedded non-volatile memory technology are programming, trimming, data encryption, coding, and identification.
Popular eNVM technologies include eFlash, embedded one-time-programmable (eOTP), electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (eE2PROM) and emulated multi-time programmable (eMTP). With the exception of eOTP, all these allow multiple reprogram ability. The proliferation of IoT devices and the growing popularity of cloud-based services in emerging and developed nations are the key developments bolstering the uptake of embedded non-volatile memory technology. Several manufacturers of the technology are exploring a number of end-use segments to gain competitive edge over others. In recent years, the adoption of eNVM technology is proving lucrative for the automotive industry. In addition, the design of advanced robotics systems for integrated memory features is also expected to accentuate the market in the coming years.
In addition, surging adoption of embedded non-volatile memory in place of comparatively bulky and standalone traditional non-volatile memory owing to its higher efficiency and compact architecture is another important factor anticipated to accelerate the demand for embedded non-volatile memory market in the coming years. Additionally, these embedded non-volatile memories are also increasingly used across various automobile applications especially in advanced key less push button start features and in head-up displays. Thus, rising demand for technologically advanced automotive is also expected to create a better opportunity for various embedded non-volatile memory manufacturers in the coming time.
In spite of so many driving factors, higher design cost along with lack of scalability especially in eFlash and eOTP memory is one of the key factors expected to deter the demand for embedded non-volatile memory to a great extent during the forecast period.
