Spansion extends NOR Flash memory offerings with two MirrorBit-based families

Spansion, ŕ well-known producer of NOR Flash memory, today announced it has started volume production of two additional Flash memory families based on 110-nanometer floating-gate technology. The new products are being introduced to satisfy AMD and Fujitsu customers´ demand for immediate price-performance improvement in existing wireless designs.

The new S29WS-J and S29NS-J Flash memory families are full-featured, high-performance 1.8-volt solutions that allow rapid migration of today’s designs from 130nm floating-gate technology. To support the broadest possible range of customer products, the new families offer 128- and 64-megabit densities, high-frequency burst mode interfaces and simultaneous read-write operation in single-die and multi-chip package (MCP) configurations.

Spansion is the only manufacturer to offer a portfolio of 1.8-and 3-volt wireless NOR Flash memory beyond the 130nm node. Spansion 110nm floating-gate technology, which now accounts for more than 50 percent of Spansion’s Fab 25 (Austin, Texas) production, increases device manufacturing capacity and improves cost structure by shrinking existing 130nm floating-gate memory.

The S29WS-J family features the Advanced Sector Protection security feature set and supports industry-standard wireless baseband chipsets with separate address and data I/O signals. The S29NS-J family features a reduced pin count to simplify circuit board routing and a multiplexed I/O bus that combines address and data signals for use with compatible baseband chipsets.Both product families are currently sampling to customers and ramping into volume production. The 128- and 64-megabit products are priced at $12 and $7 each, respectively, in quantities of 10,000.
