Intel is going to be bringing NOR flash memory product
offerings for mobiles. NOR flash is a rewritable memory chip that holds its content without power, and the technology will play a central role in "Sibley," the first NOR multi-level cell (MLC) flash memory device manufactured on Intel's leading 90 nanometer technology.
"The Sibley family is to offer NOR read speeds to enable zero-wait code execution at up to 108 Mhz. Sibley write speeds of up to 500 kilobits per second (kbps) are to enable the data storage of multimedia images required in today's wireless handsets. This product family is to increase the NOR flash density reach with a monolithic 512Mb device, as well as support multiple RAM interfaces.
Intel has also unveiled its Naubinway flash software
for the mobile market segment. Naubinway will help to minimise software overhead when storing large files such as digital images on handsets.
