Big flash at Samsung
David Manners Samsung is sampling a 128Mbit NAND flash memory based on conventional one-bit-per-transistor technology. Volume production is scheduled for the third quarter of this year. The chip is made on a 0.27?m process and operates off 2.7V. Samsung says it can be erased and rewritten ‘at least’ a million times. Up to now the largest flash memory chip has been the 64Mbit flash of Intel which stores two bits per transistor. Samsung has sampled the chip to manufacturers of memory cards, digital cameras, digital audio systems and palmtop PCs. The chip can store 1,000 newspaper pages, 120 VGA quality pictures or 30 minutes of CD quality voice data.
