Spansion today announced it has expanded the family of NOR Flash memory devices to deliver innovation to the next generation of applications in automotive, consumer electronics, and gaming.
Designed for fast data access, interactivity and boot performance, the Spansion GL-S family enables electronic devices to start nearly instantly with the push of a button. The GL-S family expanded to include densities from 128Mb to 2Gb, and delivers up to a 45% performance advantage over competing NOR products, the company claims.
The Spansion GL-S family builds upon the 2Gb GL-S device for interactive gaming, which started production in Q4 2010, and is the first and currently only single-die 2Gb NOR Flash memory device in the industry. Spansion claims that the programming speed of the GL-S is two times faster than legacy GL products and 30% faster over the competition based on third party benchmarks.
The Spansion GL-S family offers densities of 128Mb, 256Mb, 512Mb, 1Gb and 2Gb. The foundation of Spansion's NOR Flash memory is
65nm MirrorBit charge trapping process technology.
Sampling today, the family will enter mass production in Q2, 2011.
Spansion holds the largest market share in the embedded Flash memory market.
