Meridian, Idaho, May 6, 2002--Crucial Technology®, a division of Micron® and one of the world's largest direct memory upgrade providers, announced today it has expanded its flash product line to include MultiMediaCards (MMC) and high-density Type I and Type II CompactFlash cards to enhance its existing CompactFlash line.
