Camas, Wash. - Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas has put a 32-Mbit boot block flash device in a 7 x 7-mm chip-scale package, said to be nearly 40 percent smaller than other such devices. It offers a page-mode function with an initial access time of 80 nanoseconds and 35 ns for each of the next seven accesses on the same page. Code can be executed directly from the flash. Up to four 8-Mbit banks can be configured.
The device supports a Denali memory model that can be run on Verilog or VHDL platforms. It also supports the Common Flash Memory Interface specification. It will ship in mid-November, at $15 in 50-piece quantities.
