World’s smallest NAND memory device created by Intel and Micron

IM Flash Technologies LLC, a joint venture between Intel and Micron has made world’s first sub-40nm Nand memory device.This 34nm 32Gb multi-level chip which is due this year is the smallest Nand process geometry on the market.

NAND Flash architecture is one of two flash technologies (the other being NOR) used in memory cards such as the CompactFlash cards. It is also used in USB Flash drives, MP3 players, and provides the image storage for digital cameras.

According to the statement released by Intel and Micron the chip is the only monolithic device at this density that fits into a standard 48-lead thin small-outline package, providing a cost-effective path to higher densities in existing applications.
