20nm flash chip means more mobile-device features and smaller SSDs

By reducing its NAND flash chip size by as much as 40%, Intel and Micron have opened the door for tablets and smartphone manufacturers to use the extra space for product improvements such as a bigger battery or larger screen, or adding another chip to handle new features.

It also means solid-state drives with twice the capacity of current drives.This week, Intel and Micron officially announced that their joint chip manufacturing venture, IM Flash Technologies (IMFT), is producing NAND flash memory with circuitry almost half the size of its current products, or 20 nanometers (nm) in width.
