Samsung to produce 8Gb fusion memory chip using 40nm process technology

Samsung Electronics, a provider of advanced memory technology, has begun using 40-nanometer process technology to produce an 8Gb Flex-OneNAND fusion memory chip.

According to the company, Flex-OneNAND is a proprietary memory device that provides both SLC and MLC NAND in a single cost-efficient chip. It has been designed for applications that require high speed and high reliability in processing both code and data content.

Samsung has said that Flex-OneNAND incorporates SLC and MLC NAND on a single piece of silicon, allowing application designers to choose the portion of SLC and MLC NAND storage to be used in any particular design through a simple adjustment to the accompanying software. This maximizes the performance and efficiency of the embedded flash chip.

Samsung claims that Flex-OneNAND reduces the area needed for the memory on the printed circuit board and improves performance by diminishing transmission noise.
