Toshiba announced the launch of a 64 GB embedded NAND flash memory module, the highest capacity yet achieved in the industry.

The new device combines sixteen 32Gbit (equal to 4GB) NAND chips fabricated with Toshiba’s 32nm process technology, and also integrates a dedicated controller.

The chip is the flagship device in a new line-up of six embedded NAND flash memory modules that offer full compliance with the latest e•MMC standard.

Toshiba is the first company to succeed in combining sixteen 32Gbit NAND chips. The company has applied advanced chip thinning and layering technologies to realize individual chips that are only 30 micrometers thick.

Full compliance with the JEDEC/MMCA Version 4.4(V4.4) standard for embedded MultiMediaCards supports standard interfacing and simplified embedding in products, reducing development burdens on product manufacturers.

“Demand continues to grow for embedded memories with a controller function that minimizes development requirements and eases integration into system designs. Toshiba has established itself as an innovator in this key area. The company was first to announce a 32GB e•MMCT compliant device, and is now reinforcing its leadership by being first to market with a 64GB generation module,” says Toshiba.

The company informed that samples of the 64GB module are available from today, and mass production will start in the first quarter of 2010.
