Flash vs hard drives

I am truly amazed at how long hard drives have been able to keep ahead of the flash drives in cost. $1600 for 500Gb? I purchased 1TB minidrives from Fry's for $79...

Really amazing, so many things happening in the flash industry. I never thought there would be such a large number of companies are involved in the flash products. Mind blowing and awesome.

I guess flash will be very popular among memories in all sectors and applications. Its good to see people are putting so much effort in the reserach.

@selinz: Actually it was $1,600 for a TByte, my mistake (corrected), but your point is still well taken. Hard drive makers continue making incredible advances in their unique electro-mechanical technology--and its just like 4-5 companies now!

Anyone planning to use UFS t put ultra dense flash chips in their smartphone designs? This was new to me so I'm looking for input.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
