STMicroelectronics and Intel Corporation announced a common flash memory subsystem to lower development costs for handset OEMs and enable them to get to market faster with feature-rich phones. In an effort to simplify handset memory design, the two companies will provide hardware- and software-compatible memory products based on common specifications.

“Today, Intel and ST deliver NOR flash memory products to the top 10 handset OEMs worldwide,” said Darin Billerbeck, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Flash Products Group. “With our jointly developed memory subsystem for 90nm and 65nm NOR flash products, we will continue to build and expand on this leadership in cell phones.”

“ST and Intel have come together to provide handset OEMs with a stable supply of NOR flash products that deliver fast performance, high density and low power consumption for multi-media phones with mega-pixel cameras, video, and high-speed data capabilities,” said Giuseppe Crisenza, vice president of STMicroelectronics’ Memory Products Group. “The two companies are also working together to provide more value to our handset OEMs by defining next-generation features, memory interfaces and packaging technologies in our 65nm memory subsystems.”
