8/28/2002 - Fujitsu's new 64-Mbit NOR-type flash memory IC, the first to be based on the new MirrorFlashTM architecture, has been named Product of the Month by Electronic Products Magazine.
Fujitsu's new MirrorFlash is a multibit cell technology jointly developed with Advanced Micro Devices Corp. MirrorFlash memories are able to store two bits of data in each cell by trapping electrons on each side of an insulated layer of a single cell, forming a pair of electron "spots" and doubling the total data in each cell. MirrorFlash is manufactured using Fujitsu's proven 0.23-micron process technology, which is able to achieve densities that are similar to, or greater than, memories built using next-generation technology.
Fujitsu and Advanced Micro Devices simultaneously introduced the new MirrorFlash technology worldwide in mid-May. MirrorFlash has been designed to provide the increased program and data-size requirements of new consumer and computer products including new mobile phones, laser printers, set-top boxes and car navigation systems.
While the initial version - the MBM29PL64x - is 64 megabits, Fujitsu's MirrorFlash family will be extended to 128-megabit and higher density models. The company will also continue to develop faster conventional, single-bit cell, floating-gate products using the latest process technologies, to respond to a wide spectrum of customer applications that need maximum density and performance.
Electronic Products Magazine selects new products and technologies to highlight each month, and annually chooses the best of them as Products of the Year.
