Hynix Semiconductor on Monday announced that it has begun mass producing 64Gb NAND flash using 20nm-class technology at its 300mm facility called M11 in Cheo ngju site. The company developed this technology last February.

"Hynix decided to mass produce the industry’s highest density64Gb chips using 20nm class technology in order to fully satisfy demand from the customers. With these 20nm class 64Gb chips, the company is enabled to provide customized, high performance products in a timely manner which perfectly suitsmobile solutions including smartphones, table PCs and others,” said Dr. S.W. Park, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Hynix.

Hynix’s 20nm-class 64Gb chip doubles the density in a package over the current 32Gb product. 20nm class process technology also provides a 60% increase in productivity over Hynix's existing 30nm-class technology. By providing these high density and cost efficient chips, Hynix will respond to the needs of advanced mobile solutions which require smaller size and higher density storage capacity.

Hynix said it has also developed NAND Flash solution products which combine Hynix’s 30nm class 32Gb Flash chips and controller devices from Anobit, an Israeli NAND-based solution provider, through a strategic alliance between the two companies. This solution product operates at a high speed and significantly improves the reliability as a storage device. The newly mass-produced 20nm class NAND Flash chips will also be combined with the controller device and will be validated in September 2010.

Note the weasel words. It does not say "20nm", it says "20nm class", in other words anywhere in the range 20-30nm. In reality it is probably around 25 or 26nm.

Too bad companies are going in for this kind of nonsense.

Agreed. Like we haven't seen enough 1000 watts plastic desktop speakers, now we have to cope nano-technology.
