    Flash is currently the primary NV technology for RAM. The main issues with flash are speed and power consumption. Flash requires a high voltage on both reads and writes, which invokes a long charge time for the charge pumps. This high voltage also consumes a lot of power. Also, flash memory only lasts about 10^6 program/erase cycles.

    Flash - Utilizes a single transistor for charge storage in a floating gate. When charge is stored in the gate, the threshold voltage of the transistor ...
