Toshiba has enhanced its NAND flash portfolio with the introduction of 24nm generation "SmartNAND," which integrates error management into the NAND package. The new chips will support simplified host-side design and application of advanced NAND process generation in consumer applications, including digital audio players, tablet PCs, information equipment, digital TVs, set-top boxes (STBs) and other applications that require high-density, non-volatile memory.

The SmartNAND series packages integrate 24nm process NAND flash technology with a control chip supporting error correction code (ECC). The five devices in the latest line-up range from 4-64GB capacities, and are designed to remove the burden of ECC from the host processor while minimizing protocol changes.

Samples of the new SmartNAND lineup will be available from middle of April, and mass production will start in the second quarter of FY2011.
