IMFT's fab in Lehi, Utah
Possibly the best thing in Utah

Intel is not only the largest producer of CPUs in the world, but also a major player in the NAND flash memory market thanks to its stake in IM Flash Technologies. The company formed the joint venture with Micron in January of 2006 in order to share its cutting edge manufacturing technology. Intel is having great success with its 34nm-based X25-M solid state drives and Micron will soon launch its superfast C300 SSD in conjunction with their Crucial subsidary.

DailyTech has been invited by both Intel and Micron to check out IMFT's fab in Lehi, Utah in order to gain a better understanding of the complexities of NAND flash production. There will be a walking tour of the production facility, and we are trying to get some pictures that we can share with you. 

We will also receive briefings on next-generation 2Xnm NAND flash memory, which may move from dry lithography to immersion lithography. Hopefully we will some production roadmaps.

We are also hoping for some more information on new SSDs using 2Xnm NAND from Intel and Micron/Crucial. Those are likely to use a 6Gbps SATA interface.

Be sure to check back on Monday in particular (around 11am EST) for some very interesting news.
