Micron Technology Inc. has clearly emerged as a global market leader in memory and storage solutions. It is the 4th largest semiconductor company across the globe. A recent acquisition of FWDNXT provides it a clear cut edge over the Artificial Intelligence domain. FWDNXT is a software and hardware startup mostly in artificial startup technology. With this significant acquisition, Micron jumps in a comprehensive AI development platform. Technologies lying with FWDNXT enable Micron to create key building blocks for innovative memory and AI workloads. Soon after this acquisition, Micron has come up with a unique and powerful high-performance combination of hardware and software tools for deep learning applications. It is actually the newly formed composition of advanced Micron memory with FWDNXT’s AI technology that made it possible to explore deep learning solutions thus making data analytics, especially in IoT and edge computing more meaningful. This is a major breakthrough.

The global trends clearly show companies worldwide are developing or intending to develop more complex AI and machine learning systems. That, in turn, increases the demand and importance of the hardware used to train and run those models. Micron brings memory and computes together with the help of its DLA (Deep Learning Accelerator) technology. The efficient and high-performance hardware and software solutions based on deep learning and neural networks have made it more advantageous for businesses. The Micron DLA technology has got powered up by the AI interface engine developed by FWDNXT. This geared-up Micron to launch tools to observe, assess, and develop innovation bringing memory and computing working together. Overall, it helped Micron to enhance performance and lower power consumption. Micron’s DLA technology empowers enterprises with an easy-to-use software programmable platform that works with a wide range of machine learning frameworks and neural networks.
