thin-film storage

thin-film storage

[′thin ¦film ′stȯr·ij]
(computer science)
A high-speed storage device that is fabricated by depositing layers, one molecule thick, of various materials which, after etching, provide microscopic circuits which can move and store data in small amounts of time. Also known as thin-film memory.

Silicon nanocrystal memories are part of an advanced class of electronic memory technologies called thin-film storage. These memory devices are more scalable than conventional floating-gate flash technologies, since their tunnel oxide thicknesses can be reduced without impacting data retention.
