Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd revealed that it is mass producing what it claims to be the largest-capacity multi-chip package (MCP).The 2.5Gb MCP is expected to enable multimedia-intensive mobile phones, especially 3G phones, to have memory levels equivalent to that of a personal computer's main memory: 320MB.

The company's 2.5Gb MCP consists of four dies -- a stack of two 1Gb NAND flash memory chips and two 256Mb mobile DRAMs. The MCP operates on only 1.8V and is capable of storing up to four hours of high-quality (QVGA) video data.

According to Samsung, the MCPs can be configured in many different ways to accommodate a wide variety of specific applications. The multi-function device is helping mobile phone makers to utilize the limited space inside their products much more efficiently.
