Micron 34nm MLC NAND for enterprise storage
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 20 October 2009]

Micron Technology has announced a new line of NAND products - both multi-level cell (MLC) and single-level cell (SLC) - designed specifically for enterprise applications. By leveraging its 34nm NAND process, the new MLC NAND device achieves 30,000 write cycles - a 6x increase in endurance when compared to standard MLC NAND, according to the company. The 34nm SLC NAND device also achieves 300,000 write cycles - a 3x increase in endurance when compared to standard SLC NAND.

"These products ensure that enterprise organizations have a highly reliable NAND flash solution - be it MLC or SLC - for design into the broader enterprise storage platform," said Brian Shirley, vice president of Micron's memory group.

Micron's new Enterprise NAND products also feature an ONFI 2.1 synchronous interface that delivers a 4- to 5x improvement in data transfer rates when compared to legacy NAND interfaces, according to the company. Its 34nm enterprise NAND portfolio includes a 32Gb MLC NAND chip and a 16Gb SLC NAND chip that can be configured into multi-die, single packages supporting densities up to 32GB MLC and 16GB SLC, respectively.

Micron said it is now sampling the enterprise NAND products with customers and controller manufacturers, and expects to start volume producing the chips in early 2010.
