TOSHIBA Develops High Speed NANO FLASH(TM)-100 Flash Memory for ARM Core Based Microcontrollers

TOKYO --(Business Wire)--

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it has developed NANO FLASH™-100 much faster access for embedded microcontrollers, based on Toshiba's (News - Alert) original NANO FLASH™.

Development background:

The rich functionality and high speed capabilities of embedded microcontrollers require much flash memory with much faster access rates. Toshiba has recognized and responded to this by developing NANO FLASH™ which merges two features: high speed programming, based on NAND flash memory cell device technology; and NOR flash memory circuit technology. Toshiba has subsequently brought this high level performance to its original microcontrollers and to ARM (News - Alert) core-based microcontrollers. Now, as more users use ARM core-based microcontrollers, there is an emerging need for greater speed and large memory capacities. NANO FLASH™-100 is highly suited to this arket.


Features:

  • The newly developed NANO FLASH™-100 achieves a zero-wait cycle during random access at 100MHz operation (note 1), the industry's top class. This allows the core in ARM-based microcontrollers to fully utilize the superior performance and code density of applications requiring high speed and large capacity memory.
  • Using the ultra low power technology of NANO FLASH™ microcontrollers, a wide range of high speed, low power applications developments are available.

Toshiba will follow up on its first NANO FLASH™-100 product, TMPM440F10XBG, with additional ARM core-based products and will continue the proactive development of flash memory technologies for embedded microcontrollers.

Note 1: Based on Toshiba's research in flash memory for embedded microcontrollers (as of January 2013)
Note 2: ARM and Cortex are trademarks or registered trademarks of ARM Limited in the EU and other countries.
Note 3: NANO FLASH is a trademark of Toshiba Corporation.
