Spansion Inc. extended its family of high-performance MirrorBit NOR products by adding its 512Mb Flash memory, the first in a family of 90nm wireless-optimized NOR devices. According to the company, these new devices empower handset OEMs to design their next-generation phones operating at up to 133MHz to support more advanced multimedia functionality. The 90nm 512Mb MirrorBit devices are suitable for a single NOR bus architecture due to their high density, small die size and ability to be stacked into multiple die stacks for even greater density.

Spansion's MirrorBit NOR and ORNAND Flash memory solutions together enable handset manufacturers to use a single-platform approach to scale their offerings, the press release said. This scaleable design approach enables the introduction of basic entry-level phones using only NOR devices, up to very high-end, fully featured phones that combine NOR and ORNAND devices to address various applications and segments.

"With the combination of MirrorBit NOR and ORNAND, these designers can now develop highly scalable mobile platforms with improved system cost and performance for their target markets," said Amir Mashkoori, executive vice president of Spansion's wireless solutions division.

Spansion's family of 90nm MirrorBit NOR Flash memory products is designed for up to 133MHz when operating in 1.8V wireless systems. Specifically, the family of burst interface NOR Flash memory devices are designed to scale from 128Mb to 512Mb, operating at 108MHz initially, with plans to support up to 133MHz.

Samples of the 90nm MirrorBit 512Mb devices are already available, with production planned for the middle of 2006.
