SkyHigh Memory expands its single-level cell (SLC) NAND Flash Memory family on 1xnm process technology, one of the industry's most advanced technology

SkyHigh Memory Limited., a global leader in embedded storage solutions, is introducing 3.0 V 1 Gb - 4 Gb densities 4 KB page and 2 KB page ML-3 products to its family of NAND Flash memories. The new 1 Gb - 4 Gb ML-3 SLC NAND Flash product family devices are designed on 1xnm, the industry's most advanced technology node for SLC NAND products. Available with different interfaces, SkyHigh Memory first-generation Serial (SPI) SLC NAND and third-generation Parallel SLC NAND complete the third generation ML-3 4 Gb - 16 Gb parallel SLC NAND product family already in production.

The new 1 Gb - 4 Gb devices will be offered to support high-reliability systems that store critical data and operate at extended temperatures, up to +105°C. Thanks to its internal ECC engine, the ML-3 product family can support chipsets with as low as a 1-bit ECC engine to accommodate legacy chipsets and modern chipsets with higher ECC engines.
The ML-3 product family also offers various security features to protect sensitive boot code, system firmware, and application integrity from malicious software. The ML-3 product family devices are ideal for high-reliable and/or secure applications, such as, industrial control, networking equipment, IoT applications, and set-top boxes.

"Our comprehensive ML-3 NAND Flash family offers high reliability and enhanced security, with both Serial and Parallel interface that high-performance applications require," said GH Bae, CEO SkyHigh Memory. "Introducing this family fits in with our strategy to offer high-reliability and secure memories solutions for our fast-growing target markets, which are industrial, Networking and IoT."

Secure system designs require storage elements in which the stored data can be protected from programming and erasing operation. SkyHigh Memory ML-3 SLC NAND Flash devices provide two protection mechanisms traditionally not found in competitive SLC NAND products: a volatile and permanent block protection method. With the volatile block protection, the entire memory content can be protected. In this method, the protection parameter settings are volatile and therefore must be loaded to the device on power-up. With the permanent block protection, protection parameter settings are permanent and programmed only once during the life cycle of the product. Up to 64Mb can be protected permanently. In addition, the ML-3 SLC NAND product family devices contain an OTP of 1 Mb, the largest OTP of any SLC NAND in the market.

The ML-3 Serial (SPI) SLC NAND is the first SkyHigh Memory serial interface SLC NAND memory generation. The devices are available in 8-pin LGA (6 mm x 8 mm) package that saves board space and simplifies board layout. More information on the family is available at http://www.skyhighmemory.com/ML-3_Serial_(SPI)_Interface.

The ML-3 Parallel SLC NAND offer a migration path to the first and second SkyHigh Memory parallel interface SLC NAND memory generation, with form and fit compatibility. The devices are available in industry-standard packages: 48-pin TSOP (12 mm x 20 mm) and 63-ball BGA (9 mm x 11 mm). More information on the family is available at http://www.skyhighmemory.com/ML-3-Parallel_Interface_SLC_NAND.

Availability

SkyHigh Memory 2 Gb and 4 Gb ML-3 Serial (SPI) and Parallel SLC NAND Flash memory are available for sampling now.
SkyHigh Memory 1 Gb ML-3 Serial (SPI) and Parallel SLC NAND Flash memory will be available for sampling in January 2022.

LemmingOverlordThis is the new SK Hynix+Infineon JV brand, right?
SK Hynix and Cypress, the latter which is now part of Infineon.
New, not so much, as they've been around since 2019.

new because I'd never heard of them, and apparently new to TPU because it's the first article I've ever seen here about them:D
