Numonyx 32Gb NAND Flash

Bolstering its NAND flash memory lineup, Numonyx on Wednesday revealed that it has developed some of its first 32 gigabit (4GB) chips. The storage comes as the result of a newer, smaller 41 nanometer manufacturing process and lets the company double the amount of storage it can offer. Embedded MMC memory and other storage formats can use stacks of up to eight chips to make a single 32GB package, while microSDHC can hold up to 8GB.

The maximum quantity is enough to hold about 8,000 songs on a portable media player or about 20 hours of HD video, the semiconductor firm estimates.

Numonyx doesn't price the memory, though the technology is based on multi-level cell (MLC) storage and so is less expensive than single-level memory. Companies hoping to use the 32 gigabit storage will have access to samples in January; when it will reach production isn't specified but will hinge on individual devices. Numonyx is part-owned by Intel and so is likely to see its memory used with Intel-related products, though the Core i7 maker recently unveiled its own 34nm, 32 gigabit chips that should ship earlier.
