Micron Technology has added a new product to its Phase Change Memory (PCM) portfolio. The company is now sampling a 512-megabit (Mb) PCM plus 512Mb LPDDR2 MCP that offers greater flexibility in terms of application requirements.
The company also announced that it has been shipping 1Gb PCM to Nokia, for
use in their recently announced phones.
Micron says that PCM provides enhanced boot time, simplifies software
development and boosts performance with overwrite capability. It also
provides very low power consumption and high reliability. Micron's
45nm PCM solution is currently targeted for utilization in mobile phones
bringing enhanced capabilities, with a future roadmap aimed at addressing
smartphones and media tablets.
From entry-level phones to high-end smartphones and tablets, Micron supplies
virtually every volatile and nonvolatile memory product utilized in wireless
devices today, including NOR, NAND, PCM, LPDRAM and e·MMC embedded memory.
