Micron is sampling the most integrated flash memory chip of capacity 128Gb NAND flash made at 16nm node. 128Gb MLC NAND Flash memory chip is suitable for applications such as consumer SSDs, removable storage (USB drives and Flash cards), tablets, ultrathin devices, mobile handsets and data center cloud storage. Micron says the new technology could create nearly 6TB of storage on a single wafer.
Micron is sampling the 16nm, 128Gb MLC NAND with select partners now and plans to be in full production in 4Q13. Micron is also developing a new line of solid-state drive (SSD) solutions based on these devices and expects to ship SSDs with 16nm Flash in 2014.
