Spansion, the Flash memory venture of AMD and Fujitsu Limited, today announced the introduction of the 3-volt MirrorBit technology-based PL-N product line, designed to satisfy the growing code storage demands in wireless handsets.
Spansionís PL-N family operates at 3V and features the same feature set as Spansionís floating-gate family. Devices are available in 128 Mb and 256 Mb densities, with densities as high as 512 Mb, available in multi-chip packages (MCPs). The two families are package, and pin-out compatible to help ensure seamless migration to MirrorBit technology. Spansion also provides certain software driver code and support free of charge.
MirrorBit PL-N family members offer page-mode operation with page access times of 25ns and feature Spansionís simultaneous read/write function, which is designed to conduct reads while programming or erasing with no latency. MirrorBit PL-N family products also ship with Spansionís innovative Advanced Sector Protection, a security feature that can be used to help protect wireless handsets from malicious attacks and viruses.
