by Mirko Zorz - Monday, 20 January 2003.
AMD introduced the Am29PDL640G, a 64 Mbit page-mode Flash memory device with security features with multiple security modes including 64-bit password protection. Designed for wireless applications such as mobile phones and other applications including television set-top boxes, the Flash memory device delivers a superior combination of high-performance, long battery life, and sophisticated security.

Ian Williams, vice president of customer operations for AMD’s Memory Group said: "This product provides a fortress on a circuit board, helping protect the integrity of the wireless telephone or television network. Customers can count on multiple layers of protection designed to prevent would-be signal thieves from fraudulently billing calls to other users’ accounts or pirating television programming."

Unlike competing wireless Flash memory products, the Am29PDL640G device can improve network security and the user experience while also lengthening battery life.

For designers who need to quickly deliver rich user interfaces and improve their wireless network’s security, AMD’s Am29PDL640G is a 3.0-volt page-mode Flash memory device that offers 1.8 V and 3.0 V input and output voltage options, hardware-based simultaneous read/write, and low standby power.
