Fujitsu is shipping samples of a new memory chip, designed to power small mobile devices such as third-generation (3G) phones.

The chip combines all of the memory required by a mobile phone in a single multichip package, instead of the two chips found in most phones, said Fujitsu.

The product incorporates two 64Mbit flash memory chips, one 8Mbit static RAM (SRAM) chip and one 32Mbit mobile fast-cycle RAM (FCRAM) chip. Mobile FCRAM uses a Fujitsu memory core and supports the SRAM interface.

Fujitisu is aiming the chip at advanced mobile devices such as 3G handsets, which require faster, smaller and larger-capacity memory chips. The company hopes to sell 200,000 chips each month.

The chip is shipping in sample quantities for 9,000 yen (£50) a chip.
