bNAND flash memory debuts

We’ve all heard of NAND flash memory, but Hagiwara Limited has released a bootable NAND flash (bNAND) that comes with an integrated flash controller and USB interface, measuring a miniscule 12mm x 18mm x 1.2mm. The main function of the bNAND flash memory is to help protect software intellectual property in embedded applications as well as store passwords, credentials, and serial numbers in the Hidden Memory Zone. A hidden UniqueID also prevents unauthorized copies of the application to other storage mediums, further securing data on the bNAND flash. More features are available after the jump.
