The topic of this ebook is to introduce a model-based quantitative functionality indicator method appropriate for functionality, expense and reliability optimization of non-volatile thoughts. The advanced instance of flash thoughts is used to introduce and observe the method. it's been constructed by way of the writer in keeping with an commercial 2-bit to 4-bit in keeping with phone flash improvement undertaking. For the 1st time, layout and price features of 3D integration of flash reminiscence are handled during this book.
Cell, array, functionality and reliability results of flash thoughts are brought and analyzed. Key functionality parameters are derived to address the flash complexity. A functionality and array reminiscence version is built and a collection of functionality signs characterizing structure, rate and sturdiness is outlined.
Flash thoughts are chosen to use the functionality Indicator technique to quantify layout and expertise innovation. A graphical illustration in response to development traces is brought to aid a demand dependent product improvement process.
The functionality Indicator technique is utilized to illustrate the significance of hidden reminiscence parameters for a profitable product and process improvement roadmap.
Flash stories offers a chance to reinforce your realizing of product improvement key subject matters resembling:
· Reliability optimization of flash thoughts is all approximately threshold voltage margin realizing and definition;
· Product functionality parameter are analyzed in-depth in all elements relating to the brink voltage operation window;
· Technical features are translated into quantitative functionality indicators;
· functionality signs are utilized to spot and quantify product and know-how innovation inside adjoining parts to meet the applying specifications with an total fee optimized answer; · rate, density, functionality and sturdiness values are mixed right into a universal issue – functionality indicator - which fulfills the applying requirements
