Toshiba Unveils MCP With Gigabyte-Class NAND Flash Memory And SD Controller
Toshiba announced the introduction of multi-chip package (MCP) memory that integrates a gigabyte-class NAND flash memory and an SD card interface controller with standard MCP memory devices. The new MCP will go into mass production in August 2006.
The new MCP incorporates two innovative devices that add to the functionality and performance of mobile phones: a new NAND flash memory with a capacity range of up to 2GB (8-gigabit, multi-level cell NAND flash memory), and an SD card interface controller on a chip. The new NAND flash memory is dedicated to storage of the user's data, and has the large capacity necessary for music files and digital photos, while the SD controller provides an interface between the memory chip and the digital camera, music player and other devices integrated into mobile phones. The new chips can be integrated into an MCP that stacks standard MCP memory for mobile phones, including LP SDRAM + NAND flash memory and PSRAM + NOR flash memory.
The first MCP with the new gigabyte-class NAND flash memory and SD controller also integrates an LP SDRAM as working memory and standard NAND flash memory for storing program data. Future MCP will combine gigabyte-class NAND flash memory with PSRAM and NOR flash memory.
