Taiwanese Have Heated Memory

Developed a compact flash device that can withstand over 100 million write / read cycles.

The main problem of flash memory – a limited resource of work – was solved by Taiwanese engineers who developed a compact flash device that can withstand over 100 million write / read cycles, which removes restrictions on the use of flash memory in computers.

The main drawback of flash memory – a limited number of write / read cycles (for the most common and cheap devices based on multi-bit cells, it is about 10 thousand cycles) – is not critical for mobile gadgets and USB flash drives, but severely limits its use in stationary computer devices working with large data arrays.

Engineers from Taiwanese company Macronix, which specializes in the production of non-volatile memory devices, proposed to solve this problem with the help of self-heating flash chips retaining performance even after 100 million read / write cycles.
