How to handle the increasing ECC requirements of the latest NAND Flash memories in your Industrial Design

November 14, 2012 // By Toshiba Electronics Europe
Description: As NAND Flash memory moves towards more advanced process nodes, the cost of devices is reduced but the cells become more vulnerable to program/erase stresses. The new technology requires more Error Correction Code (ECC). Unfortunately, many chipsets or controllers are unable to perform more than 1-bit or 4-bit ECC. BENAND™, an SLC-NAND with internal ECC, takes this challenge from the controller. This paper describes how BENAND can be smoothly integrated into industrial and other applications.
