Flash memory is a non-volatile memory. Dr. Fujio Masuoka invented the flash memory when he worked for Toshiba in the 1980s.

Flash memory penetrated the semiconductor market by early 1990s. Flash memory evolved from erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM) and electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM).

If considered technically, flash memory is a variant of EEPROM.

However, the industry reserves the term EEPROM for byte-level erasable memory and applies the term flash memory to larger block-level erasable memory.

Flash memory is a type of non-volatile memory that erases data in units called blocks. A block stored on a flash memory chip must be erased before any form of data is written or programmed to the microchip.

Flash memory retains the stored data for an extended period of time even when the flash-equipped device is powered on or off.

Research analysts forecast the Global Flash Memory Market to grow at a CAGR of 11.37% during the period 2017-2021.
