Digital photography, MP3, digital video, etc. make extensive use of NAND-based Flash cards as storage media. To realize how much NAND Flash memories pervade every aspect of our life, just imagine how our recent habits would change if the NAND memories suddenly disappeared. To take a picture it would be necessary to find a film (as well as a traditional camera...), disks or even magnetic tapes would be used to record a video or to listen a song, and a cellular phone would return to be a simple mean of communication rather than a multimedia console. The development of NAND Flash memories will not be set down on the mere evolution of personal entertainment systems since a new killer application can trigger a further success: the replacement of Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) with Solid State Drives (SSDs). SSD is made up by a microcontroller and several NANDs. As NAND is the technology driver for IC circuits, Flash designers and technologists have to deal with a lot of challenges. Therefore, SSD (system) developers must understand Flash technology in order to exploit its benefits and countermeasure its weaknesses. Inside NAND Flash Memories is a comprehensive guide of the NAND world: from circuits design (analog and digital) to Flash reliability (including radiation effects), from testing issues to high-performance (DDR) interface, from error correction codes to NAND applications like Flash cards and SSDs.Carriers, 73, 75, 96, 101, 541, 543, 545, 548, 559 Cell current characteristic, 199 Cell error probability, 359, 360, 362, 368, 376, 391 ... 444, 457, 485, 492, 515, 516 , 525a€“ 531, 533, 534, 555 Control unit, 146, 409 Convolutional codes, 394, 398a€“ 401 Core region (CR), 175, ... 389, 396, 397, 407, 408, 413, 506a€“509 Cosmic rays , 537a€“540 Cost age time (CAT), 496 Coupling, 26, 56a€“60, 66, 74, 77a€“82, 84, 105, anbsp;...
