Samsung today announced 4Gb OneNAND flash memory for usage in cell phones. The new OneNAND device offers micro-compact dimensions, low power consumption and high performance.

It uses 1.8V and measures only 11x13x1.4mm. Its data read speed is 108MB/s, roughly four times higher than conventional NAND flash memory. And its write speed is with 10MB/s about 60 times faster than NOR flash memory.

Samsung Electronics has a wide product range of OneNAND Flash memory sizes, from 128Mb to 4Gb with software that will optimize it for virtually all popular mobile operating systems, including Symbian and Linux.

The 4Gb OneNAND memory is a quad die package (QDP) developed by stacking four 1Gbit OneNAND memory chips in a 90 nanometer production process developed last November.

Mass production of 4Gb OneNAND flash will start in July.
