A new window will open.
In 1984, Toshiba developed a new type of semiconductor memory called flash memory, leading the industry into the next generation - well ahead of its competitors.
Later, in 1987, Toshiba developed NAND flash memory (NAND), which has been used ever since in a variety of memory cards and electronic equipment. The NAND market has grown rapidly, with flash memory becoming an internationally standardized memory device. Toshiba, the inventor of flash memory, has carved out a path to a new era in which we are all able to carry videos, music and data with us wherever we go.
