Spansion Inc. has opened its Security and Advanced Technology Division (SATD) headquarters in Agrate Brianza in Milan, Italy. During the event, Spansion also unveiled its upcoming MirrorBit ORNAND2 product family.

SATD was created to lead Spansion's efforts to develop differentiated flash memory solutions and further expand the applicability of its MirrorBit technology in the high-value embedded and wireless markets. SATD is also responsible for driving the strategic direction and deployment of Spansion secure memory solutions including the company's MirrorBit HD-SIM product family.

Carla Golla, executive VP for Spansion's security and advanced technology division, will lead the SATD office. At present, the division employs over 55 scientists and experts in the field of silicon design, product development, product engineering, marketing and manufacturing control. According to Spansion, the facility is strategically located to leverage the pool of experienced R&D talent in Europe, and is in close proximity to Spansion's European customers, including some of the world's top handset, automotive, consumer electronics and other high technology manufacturers.

"The official opening of our SATD division underscores our commitment to bring differentiation and value-added solutions to the wireless and embedded markets," said Golla. "It is a very exciting time for us as we unveil our next generation data storage technology, MirrorBit ORNAND2, and bring together the best minds in the industry to design and implement value-added solutions."

Based on Spansion's proprietary MirrorBit charge-trapping technology, MirrorBit ORNAND2 is said to feature the NAND industry's smallest die size and is designed to support 25 percent faster write performance and twice the read performance than floating gate NAND. The technology also claims to offer 25 percent fewer process steps than the first-generation MirrorBit ORNAND and MirrorBit NOR solutions.
