Embedded Insiders Podcast – NAND Flash Forward

July 17, 2017 Brandon Lewis

The NAND flash memory market has evolved (or devolved depending on who you ask) into a battle of the BoMs (Bill of Materials), where the lowest price usually wins. But is that really the only consideration anymore when selecting a flash memory device, particularly for harsh environment applications?

These are questions the Embedded Insiders ask this week, and have answered by Steve Larrivee of industrial-grade NAND flash solution provider Cactus Technologies. During the discussion, the Insiders learn why the flash memory market is one where older technology is more expensive and more reliable  – and not for the reasons you'd think.

Topics covered:

  • Memory
  • NAND Flash
  • Single-level cell (SLC)
  • Multi-level cell (MLC)
  • Quad-level cell
  • Industrial-grade flash
