Lucent dazzled by AMD Flash

We'll buy AMD memory for next three years

Lucent will buy AMD Flash memory parts for the next three years, the company said today.

Actually, it didn't - AMD did, part of the chip maker's plan to convince the world it's the number one choice for non-volatile memory products.

The deal was described by both parties as "strategic", but it's by no means an exclusive arrangement - Lucent is simply signing AMD to supply a "significant portion" (ie. not all) of its Flash needs.

AMD announced a similar deal with Palm a little while back. Palm will take lots of Flash chips from AMD, but - again - by no means will the chip maker meet all its needs.

Flash memory was, of course, in short supply through 2000, though not as hard to find as small-size LCD modules. ®
