"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
"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."
