Spansion Ships High-Density Flash

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Spansion Inc. (Nasdaq: SPSN) today announced that 65-nm 3-Volt 512-megabit and 1-gigabit high density MirrorBit NOR solutions are now in production at the company’s flagship 300mm SP1 facility, with initial shipments made to customers earlier this quarter. The MirrorBit NOR GL product family is one of the leading solutions for reliable code execution and data storage for a wide range of high-density consumer and industrial applications including automotive navigation systems, communications infrastructure equipment, gaming and industrial control. The 65-nm MirrorBit NOR GL devices pave the way for seamless migration to next-generation pin compatible 65-nm MirrorBit Eclipse GL 3-volt products slated for 2009. The MirrorBit Eclipse architecture combines attributes of NOR and NAND technology on a single die for a powerful combination.

“The availability of our 65-nm MirrorBit NOR GL products demonstrate our commitment to address the needs of customers today, while providing a future path to our MirrorBit Eclipse GL products in 2009,” said Tom Eby, executive vice president, Consumer, Set-Top Box and Industrial Division, Spansion. “This recent release represents our sustained focus and continued progress on delivering ground-breaking technology at leading-edge densities for automotive, networking, storage and gaming.”

The NOR GL family currently offers a range of monolithic densities from 32-megabit to 1-gigabit. With this latest release, the product family has now been expanded to include 65-nm MirrorBit drop-in replacement 512-megabit and 1-gigabit devices leveraging the Spansion Universal Footprint – packaging with consistent pinouts – that allows customers to seamlessly migrate among densities without altering board layouts. The 65-nm MirrorBit GL products build upon the company’s long history and leadership in this market segment, which began with a 230-nm MirrorBit offering in 2002. This commitment has driven Spansion’s strong segment share dominance which is two and half times greater than its nearest competitor.
