LONDON STMicroelectronics NV has said it has subsystems based on NOR flash memory intended for use in mobile phones.
The multi-chip packages (MCPs) combine ST’s monolithic 256- and 512-Mbit NOR flash memories with pseudo-static random access memory (PSRAM) or low-power synchronous dynamic random access memory (LPSDRAM) in a single package. The NOR memory is manufactured in ST’s 90-nm manufacturing process.
ST does not make DRAM and did not disclose who is providing DRAM to the company.
The MCPs come in a range of combinations, including: 512-Mbit flash with 64-Mbit PSRAM, with 128-Mbit PSRAM or 128-Mbit SDRAM.
Triple-stack versions with up to 1 Gbit of Flash and multi-chip packages based on the new 256-Mbit NOR Flash device extend the offering, the company said
“The superior read speed of our new NOR flash devices enable the fastest chipsets and allow fast code execution in advanced cellular platforms,” said Marco Dallabora, vice president of the memory products group at ST, in a statement.
