Toshiba, the Inventor of Flash Memory

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

Now the international de facto standard, NAND Flash Memories have realized an immense range of applications that include everything from Memory Card and Solid-State Drives (SSDs) to industrial equipment.

As the total volume of information continues its exponential growth, demand for storage using NAND Flash Memories is growing with it. In order to meets these market needs, Toshiba has made major investments in plants and equipment at its Yokkaichi memory fab, and is resolutely committed to developing new products.
