Atmel introduces 128-mbit flash memory device.
The AT45DB1228 is a 128-Mbit 2.7V, sequential access Flash memory device that features a 40MHz Rapids[TM] serial interface with SPI compatibility and a 20 MHz Rapid8[TM] 8-bit interface. The RapidS features a four-pin interlace designed to ease system design and reduce power consumption and switching noise. The interface has a maximum read throughput of 5 Mbytes/sec. This device is first in a series of high-density memories manufactured using Atmel's eSTAC[TM] Multi-Level Cell (MLC) memory technology, which allows a single cell to store two bits of information in a very small page size (1,056 bytes for both program and erase). Samples are available now in 44-ball 8 mm X 12 mm CBGA or a 40-in TSOP type-1. Pricing is $10.50 per 100K units Atmel Corp., 2325 Orchard Pkwy., San Jose, CA 95131; (408) 441-0311; Fax: (408) 487-2600; www.atmel.com.
