Toshiba creates first 48-layer BiCS

Toshiba creates first 48-layer BiCS

The Japanese corporation Toshiba has announced the successful development of the world’s first 48-layer three dimensional stacked cell structure flash memory called BiCS. If this is complicated enough, something which we do not doubt, we will just say that BiCS is a 2-bit-per-cell 128-gigabit (16 GB) memory chip.

You may wonder why we need BiCS – the new technology improves the reliability of write/erase endurance and boosts write speed. Quite naturally the new technology will be used in upcoming solid-state drives and other devices, which require memory chips. In addition the new technology will increase capacities.

BiCS is ready for mass production and will be produced in the new Toshiba Fab2 at Yokkaichi Operations. The new memory ships now.
