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.

What is flashing in Sony PSP?

Flashing is the act of writing files to the flash, usually called NAND. The NAND is separated into four sections, FLASH 0, FLASH1, FLASH 2, FLASH 3, each with own files which the PSP reads and requires in order to turn on and function properly, in other words it contains the PSP OS/System Software.

What is ROM 16GB NAND Flash?

This is one way that Flash Memory storage devices can be built.ROM, all such devices are a type of Programmable Read Only Memory (PROM), memory that although it can be written to takes orders of magnitude longer to complete a write cycle than it takes to complete a read cycle.16GB, size in this case about 16 billion bytes.NAND, the type of logic function used internally by the device, This can be either NAND or NOR but NAND seems to have become most common. NAND means NOT AND while NOR means NOT OR, just as in the corresponding logic gate types.Flash, is a specific type of PROM architecture that reduces the impact of the slow write cycle by writing large "sectors" of many bytes simultaneously instead of one byte at a time as in other PROM architectures. Flash also provides many "sector" buffers that the computer may be writing data into while the chip is busy programming one "sector" buffer into the memory. Flash is ideal to provide a solid state replacement for harddisks.

Who invented the USB flash drive?

The inventor of the USB Flash drive is disputed by several companies, but most recognize Dov Moran of M-Systems (now owned by SanDisk) as the inventor.The USB Flash Drive was introduced in 1998. The USB interfaced NAND memory was invented by Dov Moran. He worked for M-Systems, where the very first Flash Drive was manufactured.Netac and Trek2000, Ltd. developed similar porducts about the same time. All three companies, M-Systems, Netac and Trek2000, have very similar and hotly disputed patents.The first Flash Drive was manufactured and distributed in Europe under the "disgo" brand name. It was only available in four sizes; 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB. The first distributor in North America was IBM.The history of flash drives is brief, but here's what we know so far. The birth of the flash drive is credited to Dr. Fujio Masuoka. He invented NOR and NAND Flash Memory while working for Toshiba. The release of the first removable drive was in 1984, using Masuoka's NOR Flash Memory. It was in 1984 when he invented NOR Flash Memory, which is the predecessor to NAND Flash Memory.

How can you replace end gate or gate and not gate with a nand gate?

when the two inputs are shorted, a NAND gate acts like a NOT gate. hence AND = NAND + NOT For OR gate, inverse both the inputs before connecting them to a NAND gate. So three NAND gates would be needed.
