20nm NAND flash from Intel detailed

More small , more capacity ,TPU reported a new processing technology from Intel Corporation and Micron Technology with a 20 nm process technology for making the NAND flash memory .

with this finer size of production the new process can produce an 8GB MLC (multi level cell) flash resulting to a high capacity , small size and low power consumption to target the mobile devices including smartphones and tablets , the chip size is just 118mm² which is 30 percent smaller than the 25nm process chip which is a critical point for mobile devices :
