"M-Systems has just announced a new form-factor version of their highly popular DiskOnChip flash-disk family -- a 144-pin DIMM sized device called the "DiskOnChip DIMM2000". DIMM witted? Certainly not!"

"According to M-Systems, the new DiskOnChip DIMM2000 is intended for very small applications, such as small internet appliances, hand-held PCs, and embedded computers -- where a very low-profile local storage solution is necessary."

"The "original" DiskOnChip (called a "EUROM") was packaged in a 28-pin EPROM-like package which was intended for use as a replacement to a PC's BIOS. ... The DIMM package represents a dense, yet readily integrated (and removable) form-factor that should prove popular in new embedded system designs."
