At last week's 5th Annual Embedded Systems Conference-Taiwan (ESC-Taipei) held at the Taipei International Convention Center, Spansion LLC showcased its broad range of NOR flash memory products, including what it touts as the industry's only single-chip 512Mb NOR flash memory device in production.

During the ESC-Taipei (July 27-28), Spansion displayed a wireless handset containing the said 512Mb NOR flash memory device based on the company's advanced two-bit-per-cell MirrorBit technology. It highlighted its system-level development tools, including modules based on the PISMO interface standard, and demonstrated its comprehensive line of NOR Flash memory products in densities ranging from 1Mb to 512Mb.

"Our extensive system-level expertise and award-winning MirrorBit technology-based products help reduce the cost and complexity associated with designing in flash memory, while enabling customers to optimize product performance and deliver their own world-class products," said Gary Wang, VP and GM of Spansion Asia-Pacific.

The company's NOR flash memory product line features diverse product families in densities ranging from 1 Mb to 512 Mb. For example, the GL family, with densities ranging from 16Mb to 512Mb, delivers fast data access times for applications requiring outstanding performance and value. The WS family, featuring 32Mb to 256Mb densities, is designed for high-performance wireless applications, including 3G phones.

"Spansion offers an extensive line of NOR flash memory devices that have been optimized for the diverse embedded market," added Wang. "Our participation at ESC-Taiwan enables us to debut these products to the Taiwanese market for the first time, and express our commitment to on-going innovation in flash memory design."

Spansion, the flash memory venture of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Fujitsu Ltd, also showcased a variety of development tools that promise to allow customers to streamline their systems design process, including the recently announced PISMO (Platform Independent Storage Module) interface standard, the Spansion USB Programmer (SUP), and the Spansion PCI card, which connects PISMO interface-compliant memory modules to PCI-based hosts.
