  • You touched upon the fact that eMLC slows down write pemforrance to improve endurance. What is also a point to note is that the eMLC write pemforrance degrades during its useful life. So, as the device gets to higher P/E cycles, the write pemforrance would drop further and further. Also, a thing to note is this eMLC is obtained either by binning of MLC parts or by statically tweaking process parameters. This should immediately ring a bell for us higher $$$$$. Wouldn’t a better way be to improve the MLC endurance by using smart controller techniques? Get to better endurance without sacrificing on write pemforrance and yet reaping the cost benefits of using MLC ?
