STMicroelectronics is sampling 1Gbit and 512Mbit 65nm NOR flash with what is claims is the smallest die size available on the market.

Meeting the demand of high-resolution cameras, multimedia content and fast internet connectivity in mobile applications, ST's 65nm PR family of NOR flash memory is fully hardware and software-compatible with its 90nm NOR flash parts to provide an easy migration path for customers.

Based on its fourth-generation multilevel-cell (MLC) technology, the 65nm PR NOR flash family offers up to 133MHz in burst read speed, program throughput of 1Mbps, and deep power down mode with 1.8V power operation.

ST's 65nm PR NOR flash family is offered in combinations with LPSDRAM, LPDDR-SDRAM, PSRAM and NAND devices, supporting shared-bus and split-bus configuration in multichip packages (MCP) and package-on-package (PoP) products.

1Gbit MLC NOR flash sports a die size of 50.8mm?, resulting in the highest Mbit/mm? rating at 20.16Mbit/mm?, according to an analyst. Its cell size measures 0.042?m?.

Budgetary pricing for the 256Mbit, 512Mbit and 1Gbit devices in stacked packages with PSRAM, LPSDRAM and NAND is forecasted between $10 and $30.

Samples are available today; volume production starts in 1H 2007.
