Micron Technology, which has been offering innovations in memory and semiconductor technologies has come up with smallest 128GB TLC NAND Flash Chip. This flash memory device utilizes 20nm process technology and has the ability to store three bits of data per cell. The three bits per info/cell storing ability is called as Triple-level-cell (TLC) and it helps in offering a compact storage solution.
Micron’s 128GB TLC NAND Flash Chip measures around 146mm and is 25% smaller than what the present day Micron 20nm MLC NAND device is offering. Micron’s aim to offer 128GB TLC NAND Flash Chip to the removable storage market, which is said to consume 35% of total NAND Gigabytes in 2013.
Micron technology will be presenting a white paper on the 128GB TLC NAND device at the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) which is being held on February 19, 2013 at San Francisco, California, USA.
