Intel Corporation today unveiled flash memory products for cell phones with up to five ultra-thin memory chips stacked for greater memory capacity, lower power consumption and optimal space savings. The features of the Intel® Ultra-Thin Stacked Chip-Scale Packaging (CSP), featuring 1.8 Volt Intel StrataFlash® Wireless Memory, are designed to ease manufacturers' provision of such features as camera capabilities, games and email in relatively thin cell phones.
Intel also announced that it has shipped its 2 billionth flash memory unit, a milestone underscoring the increasing role that flash memory plays in the cellular and wireless market segments. The announcements were made in a keynote address at the Intel Developer Forum in Tokyo by Darin Billerbeck, vice president of Intel's Flash Products Group.
It took Intel 12 years to ship its first billion discrete flash units and only three more years to ship the next billion discrete flash units. Additionally, Intel to date has shipped more than 150 million Intel® Stacked Chip-Scale Packaging (Intel® Stacked-CSP) devices.
The new standard stacked flash products will enable wireless device makers to easily upgrade their designs with higher flash densities to meet additional memory and performance requirements for their wireless devices.
