Kioxia introduced XL-Flash second-generation memory for corporate-class savers

Kioxia reported a second generation XL-Flash memory, which uses the proprietary technology BiCS FLASH 3D. The company notes that the new XL-FLASH memory generation has higher data storage density, high productivity and low delays.

Unlike the first generation of XL-Flash memory, which provides for the storage of only one bit of information in a cell, the new generation XL-Flash from Kioxia acquired the functionality of multi-layer MLC cells, where two bits of information are stored per cell.

The new memory has also increased the maximum number of simultaneously maintained units, thereby increasing the capacity, and the XL-Flash memory generation will be produced as 256 gigabit crystals, two of which are larger than the previous XL-Flash memory generation.

The new generation XL-Flash memory will continue to be used in data storage devices for corporate-class data centres and storage devices. The possibility of using CXL data memory is also being considered.
