Flash memory is a transistor-memory cell which is programmable through hot electron injection and erasable through Fowler-Nordheim tunneling. Flash memory is a type of semiconductor nonvolatile memory comprised of a large plurality of floating gate metal oxide silicon field effect transistors arranged as memory cells in typical row and column array. The data storage space of the flash memory is partitioned into a plurality of blocks, and most blocks are categorized into a number of subgroups, called windows. Flash-based storage systems employ different kinds of logic to provide data and control signals to the flash array. A flash memory storage system is typically composed of two main components: a flash memory unit and an access controller. The flash memory unit is used for data storage, and the access controller is used to control the access operation from the CPU to the flash memory as well as manage the data storage space of the flash memory. The access controller typically consists of a microprocessor, a ROM unit, an SRAM unit, a flash memory interface, and a CPU interface.
