New Toshiba SmartNAND brings hope for 64GB iPhone 5

According to the latest report, Toshiba has announced SmartNAND, its next-generation 24-nanometer (nm) NAND flash product family. The SmartNAND series integrates leading-edge 24nm process NAND flash technology with a control chip that supports error correction code (ECC) and is available in densities ranging from 4 to 64 gigabyte (GB). It could possibly be used by Apple for its next generation iPhone.

??The new SmartNAND 24nm product lineup is a replacement for current 32nm generation devices. Its advanced process combined with a faster controller and internal interface achieves faster read and write speeds and enhances overall performance. Optimized to suit design objectives, SmartNAND supports a range of read and write speeds including four read modes and two write modes.??

It was also known that a samples of the new SmartNAND family are available in mid-April and mass production will begin in the second quarter of CY2011 (April to June). The mass production of the 64GB version will not happen until Q3 2011.
