Flash and DRAM manufacturers Hynix and Numonyx will jointly develop NAND flash and mobile phone DRAM product over a 5-year term.
The two suppliers have signed an agreement to expand their existing program withÂ stated aims being:
- Expand their program for NAND flash and broaden NAND product lines.
- Collaborate on mobile DRAM technology for mobile phones.
Hynix has licensed STT-MRAM from Grandis, and Numonyx has inherited Intel's PCM memory technology. A possible component of the agreement is a choice of a joint flash+DRAM technology with either PCM or STT-MRAM being discarded.
