Toshiba Introduces Paper Thin Memory Packaging Technique.

Toshiba Corp has developed a new integrated circuit packaging technology that it will use to produce higher capacity Flash memory cards. The Paper Thin Package (PTP) technology reduces the size of stacked chip packages by shrinking the width of the individual stacked ICs. According to the EE Times, stacked chip packages can be reduced in size by one-tenth to 130 micron thickness. Initially, Toshiba plans to use the technology to increase the storage capacity of its SmartMedia Flash cards, it plans to ship samples of a 1Gb card by the first half of 2000.
