3D NAND Poised to Break Down Flash Barriers

Good post by Scott D. Lowe (thank you)

In the early 2000s the Flash NAND manufacturers decided we were almost at a flash scaling brick wall. They assessed that 60nm was the maximum scaling they could ever achieve, but were looking into other creative solutions to allow for higher capacities without using smaller NAND cells. Here we are more than 10 years later and we have not hit a brick wall of flash NAND scaling yet, although itโ€™s common knowledge that we are getting close to flash scaling limitations. The manufacturers can hear the familiar drum beat of progress getting ever fainter with each new generation of NAND flash.
