BOISE, Idaho, 2013-07-16 14:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Micron Technology, Inc., (Nasdaq:MU) today announced that it is sampling next-generation, 16-nanometer (nm) process technology, enabling the industry’s smallest 128-gigabit (Gb) multi-level cell (MLC) NAND Flash memory devices. The 16nm node is not only the leading Flash process, but it is also the most advanced processing node for any sampling semiconductor device. It solidifies Micron’s leadership position in storage technology development and delivers on the company’s vision to provide the most advanced semiconductor solutions.
Micron’s 128Gb MLC NAND Flash memory devices are targeted at applications like consumer SSDs, removable storage (USB drives and Flash cards), tablets, ultrathin devices, mobile handsets and data center cloud storage. The new 128Gb NAND Flash memory provides the greatest number of bits per square millimeter and lowest cost of any MLC device in existence. In fact, the new technology could create nearly 6TB of storage on a single wafer.”Micron’s dedicated team of engineers has worked tirelessly to introduce the world’s smallest and most advanced Flash manufacturing technology,” said Glen Hawk, vice president of Micron’s NAND Solutions Group. “Our customers continually ask for higher capacities in smaller form factors, and this next-generation process node allows Micron to lead the market in meeting those demands.””Cost reductions will always be fundamental to the NAND industry and so companies who can continue to lead on the flash process technology will be poised for success, particularly in vertically integrated solutions,” according to Gartner.*Micron is sampling the 16nm, 128Gb MLC NAND with select partners now and plans to be in full production in 4Q13. Micron is also developing a new line of solid-state drive (SSD) solutions based on these devices and expects to ship SSDs with 16nm Flash in 2014.

Micron’s Hybrid Memory Cube Named Memory Product of the Year by EE Times and EDN

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 aprile 2013

Boise, Idaho, 2013-04-24 21:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Micron Technology, Inc., (Nasdaq:MU) announced today that its Hybrid Memory Cube was named the Memory Product of the Year by a panel of industry experts. The award was announced this week at the EE Times and EDN ACE Awards Event at Design West, the annual technical conference for electronics design engineers, entrepreneurs and technology professionals. This year’s awards mark a critical juncture in the industry, as system designers across a broad range of applications look for new memory system designs that will support increased demands for bandwidth, density and power efficiency. Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) has been recognized by industry leaders and influencers as the long-awaited answer to the growing gap between the performance improvement rate of DRAM versus processor data consumption rate – a dilemma known as the “memory wall.””Electronic Design News and EE Times are two of the industry’s most influential and well-read publications by design engineers and system architects,” said Brian Shirley, vice president of Micron’s DRAM solutions group. “We are honored that they share our vision for the unprecedented impact and value that Hybrid Memory Cube brings to the electronics industry.”An industry breakthrough, HMC uses advanced through-silicon vias (TSVs) – vertical conduits that electrically connect a stack of individual chips – to combine high-performance logic with Micron’s state-of-the-art DRAM chips. HMC delivers bandwidth and efficiencies a leap beyond current device capabilities, blasting data 15 times faster than a DDR3 module and using 70 percent less energy and 90 percent less space than existing technologies. Micron expects to ship the first engineering samples of this revolutionary technology later this year.

Tecnologia Flash Memory

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 12 agosto 2011

Santa Clara, Calif. e Boise, Idaho, Intel Corporation (Nasdaq:INTC) e Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:MU), hanno ricevuto il Premio per la Tecnologia Flash Memory più Innovativa il 10 Agosto al summit Flash Memory del 2011 come aziende leader del settore della tecnologia del processo flash memory 20 nanometri (nm) NAND . Il dispositivo NAND (GB) da 8 gigabyte 20nm di Intel e Micron forniscono la massima capacità nel più piccolo formato. Prodotto da IM Flash Technologies, la joint venture per flash NAND di Intel e Micron, il nuovo dispositivo è una svolta nel processo e progettazione di tecnologia NAND, che estende ulteriormente la leadership nel settore della litografia delle due società.
La diminuzione della litografia NAND a questo nodo di tecnologia è il metodo ad oggi più efficace per aumentare il rendimento NAND, fornendo circa il 50% in più di gigabyte della tecnologia attuale. La nuova tecnologia di processo da 20nm è un ulteriore aiuto al doppio obiettivo delle società ad un accesso istantaneo e più conveniente al mondo dell’informazione. In più il dispositivo da 8 GB 20nm misura appena 118mm2 e consente una riduzione dal 30 al 40 percento dello spazio utilizzato sulla scheda (a seconda del tipo di package) paragonato ai dispositivi esistenti NAND da 8GB 25nm. Una riduzione nel layout utilizzato dalle memorie flash fornisce maggior efficienza a livello di sistema dato che questo consente ai produttori di smartphone e tablet di usare extra spazio per miglioramenti al prodotto finale come una batteria più grande, uno schermo più ampio o l’aggiunta di un altro chip per gestire nuove funzionalità.
Intel (Nasdaq:INTC) è leader mondiale nella innovazione informatica. La società progetta e costruisce le tecnologie essenziali che servono da fondamenta per I dispositivi dell’informatica mondiale.
