Micron Technology Inc. has launched its ClearNAND line of flash memory products, which offer higher capacity and optimization for high-performance applications.

The company said the Micron ClearNAND devices address the challenges found in NAND process shrinks and extend the use of more advanced NAND process generations in enterprise servers, tablet PCs, portable media players, and other consumer applications.

Traditional raw NAND interface is used in ClearNAND devices, which also integrate error management techniques and new features. With flash management getting more challenging in an industry that is progressing past the 20nm point - thus resulting in more bit errors - Micron said the tight integration of error management with the NAND device in a single package gives customers the highest capacities and lowest cost-per-bit flash memory solution.

The ClearNAND products, designed using Micron's 25nm multi-level cell process, come in standard and enhanced versions. Standard ClearNAND products, available in 8GB to 32GB packages, are designed to eliminate the error correction code burden from the host processor with minimal protocol changes in such applications as portable media players and other consumer electronic devices.

Enhanced ClearNAND products have capacities ranging from 16GB to 64GB and are meant for enterprise and computing applications.
