Based on Spansion's proprietary, highly reliable MirrorBit® technology, the 8Gb Spansion GL-T will begin sampling next month. The Spansion GL-T family at 45nm is the newest addition to the Spansion GL parallel NOR product line and complements the 65nm Spansion GL-S product family, which ranges from 128 Megabit (Mb) through 4Gb densities. With the fastest read and program speeds for NOR Flash memory in the industry, Spansion continues to expand its customer engagements and design wins for the Spansion GL product family, which is targeted at enriching the user experience in consumer, automotive, gaming, telecom and industrial applications.

High-speed, random access read performance is critical for gaming and industrial applications as more devices become Internet-enabled and require rich multi-dimensional graphics, fast data access, and connectivity with other devices as the "Internet of Things" continues to grow. For example, next-generation games are enhancing the multi-touch experience, increasing the need for more software and processing power, which requires fast read from Flash memory. In addition, industrial applications such as healthcare monitoring, factory automation and smart energy continue to demand increasingly more density and reliability, which is inherent in Spansion's NOR Flash memory.

Key Facts/Highlights:

  • The Spansion GL-T and its high performance is ideally suited for handheld consumer games, game cartridges, handheld learning devices, and industrial applications such as healthcare monitoring, factory automation and home energy management systems.
  • The 8Gb product will sample in December with production in the first quarter of 2013.  
  • Read performance of the Spansion GL-T at 8Gb is 95 MegaBytes per second (MB/s) and program performance is 1.8 MB/s.
  • Manufactured on advanced 300 millimeter (mm) production facility.
  • Value-added software drivers and Flash file system software available to speed memory integration and increase device performance.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed.

If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
