Numonyx BV , a joint venture of Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) and STMicroelectronics NV (NYSE: STM), introduced Thursday a lineup of NAND flash memory devices for consumer electronics ranging from mobile phones and USB drives to digital cameras and MP3 players.

The new products, built using Numonyx's latest 41-nanometer manufacturing process, include 16- and 32-Gb multilevel cell NAND chips for use in solid-state drives, USB drives, and memory cards; an embedded MultiMediaCard; and a microSD flash memory card.

MMC and microSD cards are used in a variety of consumer electronic devices. Numonyx is aiming its embedded MMC at mobile phones, personal global positioning systems, and set-top boxes. The company's microSD is aimed at mobile phones, digital still cameras and camcorders, and MP3 players. A microSD is the smallest memory card available commercially and is typically used for added storage.

Numonyx's embedded MMC comes in capacities from 2 GB to 32 GB, and the microSD from 2 GB to 8 GB. The lineup is available for device manufacturers, with the exception of the 32-GB embedded MMC. Samples are scheduled to be available in January.
