Micron releases 32GB e-MMC

Micron Technologies announced the latest additions to their line of "e-MMC" high-density embedded memory devices. Storage capacities from 1GB to 32GB are offered and feature an extended range of operating temperatures (-40C to +85C) for automotive or industrial use. Micron claims the devices can read data at speeds up to 52 megabytes per second. e-MMC memory is found in cell phones, PDAs, hand-held electronics, digital video cameras, gaming devices and more.

The e-MMC devices combine NAND flash memory with a built-in MMC controller. Higher storage densities were achieved by using multi level cell (MLC) NAND memory technology. MLC-NAND requires error correction code, bad block management, and wear leveling to run effectively. The MMC controller built into e-MMC memory will perform all of those functions without requiring product designers to ration their device's other resources or integrate extra programming.

The MLC-NAND memory and MMC controller fit into a BGA package measuring 14mm x 18mm x 1.4mm. Micron Technologies expects customer samples to be released near the end of August.
