From the Back Cover
Presented here is an all-inclusive treatment of Flash technology, includingFlash memory chips, Flash embedded in logic, binary cell Flash, and multilevel cell Flash. Comprised of thirteen succinct chapters authored by pioneers in the field, this book begins with a brief tutorial of elementary concepts to orient readers who are less familiar with the subject. Next, it builds upon this foundation to cover all aspects and variations of Flash technology at a mature engineering level: basic device structures, principles of operation, related process technologies, circuit design, overall design tradeoffs, device testing, reliability, and applications.
Nonvolatile Memory Technologies with Emphasis on Flash seamlessly gathers together information on the complex group of technologies that make up nonvolatile memory into one well-organized book. While providing a detailed view of state-of-the-art mainline technologies that are currently being produced in high volume, it also explores less-exposed and alternate technologies that may emerge in the future. Written as a general reference, Nonvolatile Memory Technologies with Emphasis on Flash serves as both an ideal supplemental text for undergraduate and graduate courses on nonvolatile memory and as an invaluable resource for engineers, technical managers, and other sophisticated practitioners.
