Consumer Applications

Since its invention in 1987, NAND flash memory has been at the center of the digital revolution and has been widely used in consumer devices such as cell phones, digital cameras, tablets, printers and more.

The Evolution of Flash Memory in Consumer Applications

Today, flash memory plays a key role in consumer applications, such as VR (virtual reality) headsets, game consoles, smart TVs, STB (Set-Top-Box), DVR (Digital Video Recorder) and home network devices. These applications depend on flash memory for quick load times to view high-resolution videos, play network games and run multiple processes in the background—all without any interruption in functionality.

Advanced Memory Solutions for Next-Gen Consumer Applications

KIOXIA unlocks the potential of today’s next-gen consumer applications with a range of flash memory solutions that deliver high performance, high density, low power, low latency and reliability.  From high-density BiCS FLASH™ 3D flash memory technology to lower-density, high-endurance SLC NAND, our memory solutions are a key enabler of existing consumer applications and a key driver of emerging applications.  KIOXIA will continue to push the boundaries of memory to enable enhanced user experiences in an increasingly data-driven world.

KIOXIA’s Memory Solutions for Consumer Applications

Noted for its high performance, reliability, compact form factors, low power consumption, and ability to work over an extended temperature range, single-level cell (SLC) NAND is a cornerstone flash memory technology for consumer and industrial applications. KIOXIA’s SLC offerings include standard SLC NAND and BENAND™, an SLC NAND with embedded ECC.

KIOXIA’s UFS (Universal Flash Storage) and e-MMC are JEDEC-compatible memory devices that integrate a controller, error correction code (ECC) and other control functions in a single package offering easy integration into a variety of consumer, mobile and industrial applications.

Filling the performance gap between DRAM and NAND flash memory, KIOXIA’s XL-FLASH provides a high-performance, low-latency SCM solution to support increasingly demanding data-driven applications such as real-time analytics, transactional databases, and machine learning.
