Challenge

The success of Flash memory relies heavily on the ability to have a sustained cost reduction achieved through the continued shrinkage of the Flash basic cell (smaller process nodes), and the storage of more bits per cell. However, as Flash cell dimensions continue to shrink and the number of bits per cell continues to increase, reliability inevitably decreases, approaching intolerable levels. Though cost reduction is important, the single most important characteristic of any memory element is reliability. Without it, memory’s utility is severely compromised.

Additionally, with today’s modern mobile computing devices increasingly required to perform heavy-load tasks (such as multimedia operations, etc.), the need for high-performance storage sub-systems capable of carrying out read/write operations at high speed, is growing rapidly. This need can also be seen in modern enterprise storage applications.

It is here that Flash technology hits a wall as it is pulled in two strongly opposing directions: lower cost, yet higher performance. The search for a solution that can accommodate both needs is a key challenge for the Flash industry. Until now.
