Boise, Idaho-based Micron Technology Inc, recently announced the release of its 232-layer NAND, the company has started the mass volume production of the 232-layer NAND, which claims to improve performance level for storage technologies. It claims to have the highest areal density in the industry currently and delivers improved performance, efficiency and higher capacity when compared to previous generations of Micron NAND, to facilitate support of the most data-centric use scenarios from client to cloud.

The latest technology node is predicted to enable the introduction of the fastest input and output speeds in the industry, somewhere around 2.4 gigabytes per second, and claims to meet the industry criteria for low-latency and high-throughput requirements of data-centric applications such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, unstructured databases and real-time analytics, and cloud computing technologies. The current claimed speed is an indication of 50 per cent faster transfer speeds than the previous generation interface enabled on Micron’s 176-layered technology.

“Micron’s 232-layer NAND is a watershed moment for storage innovation as first proof of the capability to scale 3D NAND to more than 200 layers in production,” said Scott DeBoer, executive vice president of technology and products at Micron. “This ground-breaking technology required extensive innovation, including advanced process capabilities to create high aspect ratio structures, novel materials advancements and leading-edge design enhancements that build on our market-leading 176-layer NAND technology.”
