"Micron successfully transitioned SyncFlash from a product concept to hardware platforms that demonstrate the SyncFlash memory advantage" said Kevin Widmer, Micron's Director of SyncFlash Marketing "Over the past 3 months, more than 200 customers contacted Micron for second-generation 64Mb SyncFlash samples and design tools. The availability of Motorola, Intel, and Sharp hardware reference platforms simplifies the customer design-in process and showcases the broad processor support for SyncFlash memory."
Micron is displaying three platforms demonstrating SyncFlash memory in high-performance wireless and embedded applications at the Communications Design Conference, in San Jose, CA, this week. The first platform showcases an XScale PXA250 processor directly interfacing with SyncFlash memory and demonstrates high performance direct boot and execute-in-place features in a Windows CE environment. The second platform demonstrates the DragonBall MX1 processor running the Symbian EPOC operating system environment directly from SyncFlash memory in a hand-held PDA application. The third platform integrates a Sharp LH7A400 processor with SyncFlash memory and demonstrates application benchmarks showing the SyncFlash performance advantage of up to 500-percent over standard Flash devices.
SyncFlash memory provides a nonvolatile Flash product that keeps pace with the high-performance environments targeted by processors, such as the XScale PXA250 and DragonBall MX1, by directly booting the system from SyncFlash memory and eliminating the need to shadow code from conventional Flash into SDRAM.
