A NOR Flash memory system, the supply voltage of which can be as low as 1.2 V, is described. The internal memory chip supply voltage (1.8 V) is obtained by means of a DC-DC converter totally included in the same package of the memory. This system represents a way to overcome technology limitations to generate a Flash device supplied at a voltage close to 1 V and below. The NOR Flash memory system is assembled in a ball grid array 88 balls 14×8×1.6 mm, with the same ballout of the standard Flash memory working at 1.8 V.
