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.
“Stacking is quickly going mainstream in the cellular wireless market segment,” Billerbeck said. “By combining our highly dense Intel StrataFlash Wireless Memory in an ultra-thin stacked-CSP, our wireless customers receive the flash density needed for their feature-rich phones, while at the same time saving space for small design footprints.”
