Jun 13, 2005

Spansion LLC, the Flash memory venture of AMD and Fujitsu Limited, today announced that top French handset manufacturer, SAGEM, has developed the SAGEM myX-8 mobile phone using the Spansion S29GL512N Flash memory device – the industry’s only single-chip 512Mbit NOR Flash memory device in production.

As the only company in production today at this density, Spansion uses its advanced two-bit-per-cell MirrorBit technology to deliver the industry’s highest density NOR Flash devices on the market. The new SAGEM myX-8 device, available today in Europe, features 40 megabytes of built-in, user-accessible memory, allowing users to access digital music and video, run JAVA applications and games, and store photos captured by the integrated 1.3-megapixel camera.

“The SAGEM myX-8 phone is a perfect example of how Flash memory innovation is helping to drive exciting improvements in mobile handsets, and how cooperation works to accelerate this cycle,” said Amir Mashkoori, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Spansion’s Wireless Solutions Division. ”By designing around a single-chip 512-megabit Spansion Flash memory product, SAGEM improved the user experience by expanding the amount of memory available for user-downloaded applications and multimedia content.”
