VNU Net reports Intel has unveiled cheap NOR flash memory designed specifically for low-cost cell phones.
The range features a new pin sharing package in a bid to minimise pin count; and are configured to work with low-cost, single-chip baseband and RF systems.

The offerings include lower cost, lower density NOR flash memory components from 32Mb to 256Mb with optional RAM in a multi-chip package. These products include a common 88-ball QUAD+ package with an address-data multiplexed (A/D Mux) configuration. Available in both single-chip and multi-cell packages, the products are sampling to customers now and will be in volume production in the third quarter this year.

Intel said it plans to develop the range to also support the common 107-ball x 16C package with an A/D Mux configuration.
