 The Latest update: More on Micron Tech

Friday 11/23/2012

                  Micron 2

        “Technology Leadership That Keeps Memory Moving Forward

Micron is known for leading the industry in researching and developing the designs and processes that keep memory moving forward. We consistently deliver market-driven solutions that provide greater capacity in smaller designs, without sacrificing quality and performance.” (e. g. Micron tech.)

               20nm NAND
 20nm NAND: 2011 Semiconductor of the Year

They'er industry-leading 20nm NAND is acknowledged for its superior design, right down to the memory cell. “UBM TechInsights named it as 2011 Semiconductor of the Year after extensive review —including examination of the device at the package and die levels and analysis of the process technology, Storage device configuration, and materials identification.” (e. g. Micron tech.)

 UBM Insight Award
Our prize-winning 20nm NAND technology has enabled our groundbreaking 128Gb MLC device, which sets examples for in storage silicon. “This part provides a terabit of storage in a single eight-die package, doubling the storage capacity of our existing 20nm 64Gb NAND device. Its smaller footprint frees up more board space for other critical mobile components such as screen, battery, or even more storage, and meets increasing demand for more local storage in consumer mobile devices.
Smaller and Better.”(e. g. Micron tech.)

         Process shrinks require compact, more sufisticated cells, which translates to lower performance and endurance. “With 20nm NAND, however, we developed innovative new technology that will allow our 20nm NAND to hit the same endurance and performance specifications as the last NAND generation (25nm), providing a better product and a more sustainable path for NAND scaling and development.
Continued Leadership in NAND Innovation

The introduction of 20nm NAND underscores our technology leadership in NAND development.” (e. g. Micron tech.)

 The chart below demonstrates  the innovation pace of NAND developers. Since forming the joint venture IM Flash Technologies (IMFT) in 2005, Micron and Intel have implemented process shrinks roughly every 18 months, well ahead of competitors. Because the reach these milestones sooner, they’re also better-equipped to further refine these technologies for adoption in demanding applications like SSDs and servers.

           Nand silicon leadership
         Why do NAND shrinks matter?

 “The growth in data storage, combined with new tablet and smartphone features, is demanding more from NAND Flash technology, especially for higher capacities in increasingly smaller designs. 20nm NAND reduces the footprint needed for storage, freeing up extra space for improvements like a larger power cell, a larger screen, or the addition of another chip to handle new features.

Measuring just 118mm2, our 64Gb 20nm NAND was the first 8GB MLC (two bits per cell) device that fit into a microSD™ form factor, providing high-capacity, small-form-factor storage for saving all types of media on all types of devices.”(e. g. Micron tech.)
