Can anyone recommend high density serial flash parts for embedded system code storage? I'm looking for at least 8Mbit, preferably 16 or even 32.
Nexflash aren't shipping yet, and 16mbit isn't expected until mid next year. Similarly SST is only up to 2 or 4mbit right now. I saw a mention on EE times of Taiwanese companies Mycomp and TMC, but could find no info on their serial flash devices.
For this application, we just need to store code/data that will be copied into RAM at boot time. Is there another technology that might be suitable in the densities I'm looking for?
Low pin count is the main priority.
I've also looked at NAND flash, which has a fairly low pin count, but am a bit put off by the complexity of implementing controller hardware and software that will only be in use at bootup.
