Spansion and XMC announce 32nm flash memory partnership

USA & CHINA: Spansion Inc. and XMC, China's fastest growing 300mm semiconductor foundry, announced an expanded partnership, to develop and manufacture Spansion 32nm NOR Flash memory.

The agreement expands XMC's current 300mm manufacturing of Spansion's proprietary 65nm and 45nm Flash memory technology.

Demand for Flash memory from embedded applications continues to rise as devices become more interconnected and applications are increasingly more feature-rich with enhanced graphics and immersive user interfaces. Continued investment in Flash memory technology is critical as these connected devices demand higher densities, fast read performance, and Spansion-grade quality to ensure consistent operation.

The Spansion and XMC collaboration began in 2008. XMC foundry services, along with Spansion's flagship manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas, are central to Spansion's fab lite manufacturing strategy. Spansion utilizes world-class flash memory fabs from both existing internal facilities as well as foundry partnerships to create a flexible, cost-efficient manufacturing network.
