ATMEL INTRODUCES FAMILY OF STACKED FLASH MEMORY MODULES.
The modules are offered in both 2.7V and 1.8V ranges, with a fast read access time of 70ns. The 64Mb and 128Mb modules offer Flash devices with page mode, burst mode, and concurrent read capabilities. The page access time is a fast 25ns, and the burst speed is a fast 66Mhz. The concurrent feature enables the user to read from one plane while a program or erase operation is occurring in another plane. Depending on the density, the number of planes varies from four to thirty-two to help designers overcome challenges.
"These modules offer the designers of small handheld devices such as mobile phone handsets and PDAs a unique capability of memory bit density per square millimeter," stated Anup Sidhu, Atmel's strategic marketing director for Flash Products. "Our customers have found that combining Atmel's state of the art Flash designs with leading edge PSRAM designs leads to new levels of system performance. The response to these products has been tremendous," he concluded.
The modules are offered in a 67-ball CBGA and an 88-ball CBGA package. The package size is a small 8mm x 10mm. The standard footprints provide added flexibility in allowing effortless migration from one density stacked module to another. Pricing for these devices start at $3.95 for the 16+8 in 10KU quantities.
