Flash Memory Ted 111

  1. 1. Flash Memory<br />By:<br />Aaron Miles <br />
  2. 2. What is Flash Memory?<br />It is “a non-volatile computer storage that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. It is a technology that is primarily used in memory cards and USB flash drives for general storage and transfer of data between computers and other digital products.” Wikipedia <br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. History<br />Founded in 1980 by Dr. FujioMasuoka, an employee of Toshiba.<br />The name “flash” was suggested by Dr. Masuoka’s assistant, Mr. Shoji Ariizumi.<br />In 1984 he presented his idea at the IDEM.<br />
  5. 5. History<br />In 1987 Toshiba release a NAND based flash memory.<br />This unit had faster erase and writing times <br />Smaller in size with more memory<br />This product was also a lower cost than NOR based flash memory<br />
  6. 6. History<br />In 1988 Intel Corporations release a NOR based flash memory.<br />This product has a long erase and writing times.<br />NOR based flash memory has an endurance of 10,000 to 1,000,000 erase cycles.<br />Provided full addresses and data buses which allowed full access to memory in every location <br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. Functionality<br />Flash memory is a very complicated technology in its processes<br />It consists of two transistors.<br />Floating gate<br />Control gate<br />
  9. 9. Functionality<br />Flash memory also contains cell sensors.<br />This system here monitors the level of the charge passing through.<br />Oxide layer<br />Acts as a barrier between the floating gate and control gate<br />
  10. 10. Usage in Society<br />“Provided 9.1 million in production and sale in 2008” according to Wikipedia.<br />Used in memory sticks for digital cameras, camcorders, and mobile phones.<br />High demand for college students<br />This device is used often by college students as a second hard drive for their school work.<br />
  11. 11. Usage in Society<br />Apple INC.<br />In 2008 apple was counted for 13 percent of flash memory sales.<br />Apple also has and MP3 player that plugs directly into your computer through a USB.<br />Flash memory has even hit the music industry<br />Many record labels use jump drives to save artists music too<br />This also allows easy music transportation<br />
  12. 12. Usage in Society<br />
  13. 13. Future Trends<br />This field of technology has grown rapidly since its discovery.<br />Mobile Phones<br />Flash memory wants to make mobile phones have their main storage be memory cards.<br />Flash memory wants to take over hard drives<br />They still have not produced something with the capacity of a hard drive.<br />
  14. 14. Future Trends<br />Flash Memory to slow down?<br />This technology is at a stand still with size and memory.<br />Companies still haven’t developed a flash memory device with enough memory due to there lack of size and space to fit gigabyte’s. <br />
  15. 15. Questions?<br />
