Spansion prepares a flash series in less than a year
Spansion Memory Products, NOR flash maker, a product of Fujitsu and AMD flash business merge, launched the production of its first flash product series, namely Spansion S29AL/GLxxxM, based on the MirrorBIT technology. Created in July 2003, the company succeeded to complete the production cycle, from development to manufacture launch in less than a year.
If you remember this memory series is designed for consumer electronics like DVD players, recorders, Internet consoles, and also comms, automation systems, etc. S29AL/GLxxxM series offers 16Mbit to 256Mbit chips made using 230nm process. According to the experts, price/architecture ratio of 230nm MirrorBit is comparable with that of 180nm MLC and 130nm floating gate. It´s clear that this architecture will be a better competitor, when 0.11µm process will be used to make such chips. According to provisional information, this production should be launched in Q4 2004.
As for the new chip features and backward compatibility, the novelties are pin-compatible with Am29LVxxxM and MBM29PLxxxM and have write time reduced by 35% and block erase time reduced by 75% comparing to the previous similar solutions.
