NAND flash device is ‘industry’s smallest’

The industry's smallest 128Gb nand flash memory device has been touted by Micron Technology.

The triple level cell module, which measures just 146mm2, is said to be 25% smaller than the same capacity of Micron's 20nm multi level cell nand device.

Utilising the company's 20nm process technology, it is targeted at the removable storage market, such as flash cards and usb drives.

"This is the industry's smallest, highest capacity nand flash memory device - empowering a new class of consumer storage applications," said Glen Hawk, vice president of Micron's nand solutions group.

Micron is now sampling the 128Gb device with select customers. Mass production is scheduled for Q2 this year.
