The company has announced the release of its 32MB Q-Flash memory as an alternative to Intel's StrataFlash device. The memory device is targeted for use in STBs, cellular basestations, networking and automotive applications.

Manufactured using 0.18?m process geometries and single-state NOR technology, Q-Flash allows rapid process migration and continued reduction of manufacturing costs. "This type of scalability leverages Q-Flash devices as one of the most competitive memory solutions for applications needing both code and data storage," said Steve Forman, Micron's Strategic Marketing Manager for Advanced Flash Architectures.

The Q-Flash is organized in a by-8 and by-16 configuration. It operates at 2.7V to 3.6V with a 5V I/O range option. It functions at an extended temperature range of -40C to 85C. The memory device is available in a 56-pin TSOP and 64-ball FBGA package.

The device has an even-sectored memory array architecture that is divided into blocks that can be erased without disturbing the rest of the array.
