I just posted the article IMFT announces 25nm MLC NAND.

IMFT (Intel–Micron Flash Technologies) have successfully produced 25nm MLC NAND flash memory samples, and will start producing them in volume during Q2 2010.

The first 25nm product will be an 8GB (64Gbit) 2 bits per cell MLC NAND flash part, with a die size of only 167mm. This process has required the use of Immersion lithography, and it is believed that this is the first time that Intel has used Immersion lithography technology.

Has anyone seen any information about what effect, if any, shrinking feature sizes have on flash cells lifespan?

Its certainly becomes more of problem as the fabrication process becomes smaller. I think i read somewhere, that leakage of electrons between cells, becomes more of a problem the closer the cells are to each other. I would think that IMFT will provide MTBF information at launch.
I guess we will have to wait and see. :slight_smile:

It will certainly help to produce TB SSD’s. :smiley:

Thanks for the News Dee :slight_smile:
Hope I it is SATA 3.0 SSD ?
