NAND Flash Memory Expanding Beyond iPod nano
NAND flash memory is best known for storing music inside Apple Computer's (Nasdaq: AAPL) cool iPod Nano.
The cutting-edge technology is, however, being used quite extensively in PCs as their capacities grow and costs come down. Hybrid hard drives, which incorporate 64 MB or 128 MB of flash as a buffer, are expected to be used widely in 2007, and IM Flash Technologies -- the Intel-Micron Technology flash memory venture -- expects huge gains from its investments in nanotechnology R&D.
