"Serial flash has the highest growth of any NOR flash type," said Jim Handy, a flash memory analyst at Objective Analysis. "It's only natural that designers prefer serial products since they provide sufficient storage in a very small form factor at a lower cost."
Serial Flash Market
As applications continue migration from Parallel to Serial Flash, more and more performance-enhancing interface features such as Dual-SPI, Dual I/O SPI, Quad SPI, and Quad I/O SPI, are available with speeds of 100Mhz and above. Combined with small foot-print, low-pin count devices, and high throughput, Serial Flash currently is one of the hot trends moving forward. Most industry-analysts expect the Serial Flash market to grow significantly with market projections exceeding 8 billion units by 2017.
