Micron launches 45nm serial NOR flash for embedded apps
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 11 December 2013]

Micron Technology has announced the availability of 45nm serial NOR flash memory samples in 512Mb, 1Gb and 2Gb densities with a standard SPI interface. These new MT25Q SPI NOR devices offer a cost-effective solution with high performance, enhanced security and drop-in compatibility with legacy NOR devices, enabling high-density SPI NOR adoption in consumer, automotive, industrial and networking applications, the company said.

Micron's MT25Q devices satisfy embedded application requirements with 2MB/s programming speed. In addition, MT25Q devices offer improved erase performance and 66MB/s read performance, enabling fast updates and boot performance for embedded systems, the company said.

The MT25Q family also offers the industry's first serial NOR 2Gb device in a 6x8mm BGA package, which is the smallest package available in the market today, the company claimed.

"The introduction of our new SPI NOR family reconfirms Micron's commitment to NOR technology and further enables us to continuously meet customer needs," said Jeff Bader, VP of Micron's Embedded Solutions Marketing. "As customers increasingly move to higher-density NOR designs, our MT25Q product line, with 2 MB/s programming speed, supports the need for improved performance, higher manufacturing efficiency and a small footprint."

Samples of the MT25Q devices are available today in BGA and SO16W packages, according to Micron.
