Storage "takes the centre stage"  in more and more information oriented systems because of the eternal push for more complex applications with especially larger and more complicated data types. In addition, the access speed, size and power consumption associated with this storage form a severe bottle-neck in these systems (especially in an embedded context). In this invited paper, we want to explore the interconnect related issues, both inside the storage components (intra-memory) and between the components (inter-memory). To achieve this we have performed several experiments with a storage organisation exploration tool set that has been applied to a real-life application from our target domain, namely a Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) receiver. Several interesting conclusions can be based on these experiments and these will be briefly summarised below.
