Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and SGS-Thomson Microelectronics join efforts and resources to develop flash-memory products, starting with multi-level 64-Mbit memories. These will include both DINOR and NOR architectures, as well as associated processes from 0.20 through 0.18 micron. Resulting products will be used primarily in portable applications such as hand-held computers, personal digital assistants, and interactive set-top boxes. The companies expect to see the market for flash- memory products grow from $2.6 billion in 1996 to more than $6 billion by 2001. Embedded applications will also benefit. These include consumer products that integrate set-top boxes, DVD, games, and Internet terminal features under the control of a standard operating system; global positioning by satellite systems for the automotive market; and industrial control systems.

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
