Intel to ship mobile flash memory

Intel will start shipping samples of new high-performance flash memory this month for use in Internet-enabled mobile phones and other wireless devices, writes Daniel Thomas.

The companies say that the chips will increase the speed of several key functions of the devices by up to four times.

The 1.8-volt chips boost the performance of data-centric wireless devices by integrating a flexible partition architecture with synchronous page mode read operations. Through read-while-write operations the processor can execute read operations from one partition while writing or erasing in another, which improves the speed at which information can be stored and accessed in the flash memory by up to 40%.

By accessing the memory's contents with asynchronous page and synchronous burst reads, bottlenecks are removed and commands executed more rapidly.
