NAND Flash Memory

Toshiba, the Inventor of Flash Memory

Back in 1984, Toshiba developed a new semiconductor memory, Flash Memory, and by doing led the industry, and its competitors, into the next generation.

Today the international de facto standard, NAND Flash Memories have realized an immense range of applications that include Memory Cards, Solid-State Drives (SSDs), and even industrial equipment.
As the total volume of information continues its exponential growth, demand for storage units using NAND Flash Memories will grow with it. In order to meets these market needs, Toshiba has made major investments in plant and equipment at its Yokkaichi memory fab, and is resolutely committed to develop new products.
This brochure highlights Toshiba's NAND Flash Memory and other Memory Solutions.
