Cypress's new West Bridge(R) Astoria(TM) multimedia mass storage controller offers Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND Flash support that enables designers to use lowest-cost, highest-density flash storage. The Astoria controller supports up to 16 MLC NAND Flash devices, which cost approximately three times less than Single-Level Cell (SLC) NAND Flash devices for the same storage density.

The new controller delivers the same industry-leading, High-Speed USB data transfer performance as the West Bridge Antioch™ controller, and adds a configurable multimedia storage interface and flexible processor interface, easing connections to a broad range of embedded processors and mass storage devices. These new features allows the Astoria controller to connect to any embedded processor or DSP, bringing MLC NAND support to new applications including portable media players (PMPs), wireless cards, dongles, portable navigation devices (PNDs), digital cameras, POS terminals and more.
