The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part2)

This type of memory was made in the form of a two-dimensional matrix of conductors, at the intersection of which a thin jumper (20-30 μm) was created from metal or amorphous silicon. The programming of the microcircuits consisted of passing a large current pulse through an appropriate jumper that caused it to melt (burst). The likelihood of recovering torn jumpers was minimal. For greater reliability and eliminating the possibility of restoration of jumpers, the chip was subjected to thermal training (additional heating for a long time), and then it was checked and, if necessary, reprogrammed.

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part1)

It would seem that in common between a mobile phone, a GPS navigator, a digital camera and a modern voice recorder. The first thought that comes is that these are digital devices that appeared on the market in the 90s of the last century. But this is only at first glance, if you dig deeper, then all these devices have one thing in common – they use Flash (flash) memory to store data. Flash memory, as a new storage device, has been rapidly developing since 1984. In this article, we will try to highlight the history of the creation and development of Flash memory. Continue reading
