[The Chosun Ilbo, June 4 2008] Hynix Develops Three-Bit-Per-Cell Flash Chip

Hynix Semiconductor has developed the world’s first 32-gigabyte NAND flash memory using “three-bit-per-cell” or X3 technology, the firm said Tuesday. A cell is the smallest storage unit, and the cutting edge three-bit technology allows three pieces of information to be stored in one unit. This will decrease production cost of semiconductor products by a large margin as it reduces the size of chips by 30 percent compared to those made with two-bit-per-cell technology, which is widely used in the business at the moment.
