Silicon Storage Technology Inc. (SST) announced a serial flash memory support of Intel Corp.'s latest Intel 82573E LAN chipset featuring Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT), and Intel 945 Express chipset family with Intel 82801GB and 82801GR I/O Controller Hub.

SST's 4Mb SST25LF040A and 8Mb SST25LF080A nonvolatile serial flash devices are a key enabling technology for companies wanting to implement Intel AMT for increased network management. The SST devices also provide designers of Intel 945 Express chipset-based systems with a BIOS solution that supports advanced capabilities and increased functionality in high-end notebooks, desktop PCs and servers.

Intel AMT is a platform resident hardware and firmware solution that enables corporate IT departments to remotely manage networked platforms in any system state. The SST SST25LF040A and SST25LF080A devices feature 4KB small sector blocks, which make it easier for the software handling in Intel AMT enabled systems.

Based on SST's proprietary SuperFlash technology, the SST25LF040A and SST25LF080A also feature a 33MHz max clock frequency and a typical standby current of only 8 microamperes, thus significantly improving performance while lowering power consumption. SST's serial flash memory products incorporate a four-wire, SPI-compatible interface that uses fewer pins to transfer data to and from a system CPU, thereby creating an overall reduction in board space, power consumption and cost when compared to other nonvolatile memory interfaces.
