Boise, Idaho - Micron Technology Inc. is sampling a 64-Mbit SyncFlash memory with 100-MHz SDRAM read speeds for "execute-in-place" and embedded applications in next-generation communication and consumer systems.
SyncFlash technology is said to integrate the benefits of nonvolatile storage with industry-standard SDRAM architectures; SyncFlash and SDRAM can reside on the same bus and execute from a single SDRAM controller.
The technology is designed to eliminate the need for a local bus and the additional pins required for a separate (flash-only) memory interface, and to increase flash read performance to SDRAM speeds. The device is organized in a 1-Mbit x 16 x 4 bank configuration that supports simultaneous read and write operations. It is packaged in a 54-pin TSOP and priced from $25 in lots of 100. Production quantities are planned for the first half.
