Intel unveiled its new Intel StrataFlash Wireless Memory System, a complete memory solution specifically designed for next-generation handsets that require memory storage for large embedded data applications such as camera images, audio and video files.
Based on Intel's Multi-Level Cell (MLC) technology, which doubles the amount of information stored in each memory cell, the system contains code execution, data storage and RAM working space - three types of memory functionality wireless developers require.
The system also features 1.8-volt operation for longer battery life and memory densities up to 1 Gb. It comes in one tiny package that simplifies the design process for wireless handset makers.
"The Intel StrataFlash Wireless Memory System is designed specifically for next-generation handsets that are driving data adoption rates at a rapid pace," said Ron Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Wireless Communications and Computing Group. "Intel offers complete wireless solutions from cost-competitive memory systems to combinations of memory and logic products to simplify designs that add more functionality in a small space, while saving cost for wireless handset makers." Smith announced the system in his keynote at the Intel Developer Forum in Taiwan.
