NAND Flash is a special form of Flash memory. Flash memory is a memory technology that keeps data even when the power supply is cut off; this is known as a non-volatile memory type. Flash memory can be read pretty fast, but writing to Flash memory is pretty slow compared to many other -volatile- memory technologies such as SRAM or DRAM. Flash also has a limited number of write-cycles; manufacturers typically specify something in the area of 10,000 writes for the lifetime of the part.

NAND Flash is faster than regular Flash, although the general characteristics still hold.

Flash memory is widely used in digital cameras, portable MP3 players, USB (Flash) sticks, and many other devices.

Toggle is the fastest type of MLC NAND by a considerable margin. There is a larger performance gap between toggle and synchronous than there is between synchronous and asynchronous.

That is simple as example USB flash memory, pen drives, memory cards.

NAND Flash is typical choice of the manufacturers.
