AMD introduces more secure Flash memory

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has introduced a 64Mbit Flash memory chip, the Am29PDL640G, which incorporates security features designed to protect smart phones and set-top boxes from attacks by hackers.

The Am29PDL640G is a 3.0-volt page-mode Flash chip that is equipped with several security features, including 64-bit password protection, that prevents unauthorised users from making changes to memory and a persistent sector protection mode that offers a defence against viruses, AMD.

The chip also includes a 256-bit one-time-programmable space for an electronic serial number or other information.

The Am29PDL640G has an initial access time of 65 nanoseconds (ns) and a page access time of 25ns. It offers data throughput of up to 80Mbytes per second, allowing applications to load quickly on a mobile phone.

The Am29PDL640G device is priced at $9.75 (£6.05) each in quantities of 10,000.
