MCP Flash Memory and SRAM from AMD
Multi-chip package (MCP) gadgets stuff Flash and SRAM memory into the same package, and are generally used in devices where space is at a premium, like cells phones and other little mobile units. This week, AMD let us know about its new family of MCP flash/SRAM products. The product line lets you (if you're a manufacturer of mobile computing devices) choose from any combination of 16-, 32- or 64-Mb flash with 2-, 4-, or 8-Mb of SRAM with a single footprint. All nine of AMD's MCP products fit in the same sized pcakage, so that folks can use a single board and still differentiate products by using different memory configurations. The Am41DL16304 with 16-Mb Flash and 4-Mb SRAM is available now and is priced at $9 in 10,000 piece quantities. The Am41DL32304 with 32-Mb Flash and 4-Mb SRAM is available now and is priced at $12 in 10,000 piece quantities. The Am41DL32308 with 32-Mb Flash and 8-Mb SRAM is available now and is priced at $14.50 in 10,000 piece quantities. The devices are available in a number of bank splits and can be specified top or bottom boot.
