Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd and Toshiba Corp. are sharing with one another the rights to produce, market and sell memory with the specifications and trademarks of Samsung's OneNAND and Toshiba' LBA-NAND memory chips.

Under terms of the agreement, Samsung will license product specifications of its integrated OneNAND and Flex-OneNAND "fusion" memory chips to Toshiba, while Toshiba will license product specifications of its single-package LBA-NAND and mobileLBA-NAND flash chips to Samsung. Both companies will develop and market products that are compatible with the respective original-source technology. Samsung and Toshiba each plan to release products next year based on the respectively licensed product specifications.

Samsung's OneNAND and Flex-OneNAND are fusion memories that integrate a NAND core, SRAM, error correcting engines, and logic circuits in a single chip with a NOR interface. Toshiba's LBA-NAND and mobileLBA-NAND on the other hand are non-volatile memories that integrate a controller and NAND flash memory in a single package.
