In July, Toshiba partners will receive samples of 16-Gbit chips that were released on 32-nm production methods. Remember, in November last year, companies from Intel and Micron announced the beginning of the production of NAND MLC memory on the rules of 34 nm. These chips are produced on 300-mm plates and have a capacity of 32 Gb. Press Service Toshiba said that the demand for flash memory is increasing due to expanding market of mobile phones and other mobile equipment with support for playback of multimedia. Raising the requirements for size and compactness of chips. Toshiba expects that the issuance of new 32-nm products it will strengthen its position in the market.
