New flash memory for mobile phones from Intel
Intel Corp. will unveil new flash memory for mobile phones, designed to allow handset manufacturers to add advanced functionality at lower cost.
The StrataFlash Wireless Memory chips are based on Intel's new Multi-Level Cell technology.
New 2.5G and 3G mobile networks will enable phones to use high-bandwidth applications like full-motion video. Such large amounts of high-speed data need a specialized data storage device that goes into the phone.
The new chips combine code execution capabilities, data storage and Random Access Memory working space.
