Fujitsu Unveils New Flash Memory Products

128-Mbit Burst Mode Flash and 8-Mbit Super CSP Flash, Each with 1.8 V Single-Cell Power

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, April 10, 2003

Fujitsu Limited today announced the release of two new low-voltage (1.8V) flash-memory products that respond to mobile communications devices' growing needs for greater storage capacity, high-speed operation and lower power consumption. The MBMN29BS12DH is a NOR-type 128-Mbit product with burst mode functionality for use in mobile devices. The MBM29SL800TE and MBM29SL800BE are NOR-type 8-Mbit products employing Super Chip Size Package (Super-CSPTM) packaging technology for use in wireless communications modules, such as Bluetooth, and for ultra-compact mobile devices.

Product Pricing and Availability

Product Pricing (excl tax) Shipment dates (samples)
MBM29BS12DH 4,000 yen April 10, 2003
MBM29SL800TE 400 yen April 10, 2003
MBM29SL800BE 400 yen April 10, 2003

Sales Targets
MBM29BS12DH: 1 million units/month
MBM29SL800TE/MBM29SL800BE: 100,000 units/month (combined)

Main Features of the MBM29BS12DH

  1. High-speed read operations
    After power-up, the time it takes to output data starting from a fixed address is 46 nanoseconds (when operating at 80 MHz in handshake mode). Access time in burst mode is 8.5 nanoseconds (when operating at 80 MHz). Optimal burst mode can be selected based on configuration-register setting.
  2. Low power demands
    Burst access read operation is carried out by restricting the number of sense amplifiers to two-word access, resulting in a product that requires less power than similar models from other companies. In standby mode, this product requires only about one-twentieth the power of models from other companies.

Main features of the MBM29SL800TE/ MBM29SL800BE

  1. Packaged using ultra-compact Super-CSPTM.
    The use of Super-CSP packaging reduces footprint. Compared to single-chip packaging, it also simplifies handling, thereby increasing board level reliability.
  2. High-speed access
    Access time at 1.8V is 90 nanoseconds.
