The 4 megabit Flash portion of the ConcurrentFlash is configured as a 512K by 8 bit array, containing 2048 individually reprogrammable sectors of 256-bytes each.
As a result of recent discussions with potential joint development partners, the company has decided to increase its planned 96- bit array to a 128-bit development effort.
Micromem recently announced that it expects to complete fabrication of a 1000 bit array of its MAGRAM memory technology by early February.
The tests were performed on fully integrated micron scale 9 bit arrays (which were fully bonded, encapsulated and mounted in 28 PIN DIP packages).
Following the successful production and testing of recent product samples, Micromem has decided to produce 16Kb memory devices, skipping the production of smaller 1000 bit arrays as previously announced.
