Launching what has become known as the world’s highest capacity single-chip 64Gb memory, Toshiba has announced that it has begun volume production of NAND flash memories fabricated with 24nm process technology. Use of this 24nm technology will drive the further shrinkage of chip sizes, allowing the highest density on a single chip.
With the increasing uptake of smaller and smaller devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs, Toshiba’s latest offering to the chip industry is now available. The 24nm process technology has already been incorporated into 2bit-per-cell 64Gb chips, with plans to add 32Gb and 3bit-per-cell products using the 24nm process technology to the company’s product range. The 24nm process products are also equipped with Toggle DDR, which enhances data transfer speed.
