This whitepaper explores the market and technical evolution of flash memory starting with Single-Bit Cell (SBC) technology and its inherent limitations at finer process geometries, followed by the shift to Multi-Level Cell (MLC) and Multi-Bit Cell (MBC) flash. Primary MLC and MBC vendor offerings are profiled and compared, including those from AMD, Hitachi, Intel, SanDisk, and Toshiba. SBC flash memories that compete directly with Multi-Bit offerings are also profiled including products from Micron, Samsung, and ST Microelectronics.
