According to one embodiment, a temperature sensor includes: a voltage generating part generating (2^(N)1)-midpoint voltages (N is a natural number equal to or larger than 2) based on a reference voltage which does not depend on a temperature; a sense part generating a temperature sensing voltage which depends on the temperature; and an arithmetic part is configured to generate N-bit temperature data by executing first to N-th operations each comparing the temperature sensing voltage with one of the (2^(N)1)-midpoint voltages.

In the past two decades Flash memory grew from a novelty technology to a powerful disruptor that has profoundly transformed consumer electronics and mobile computing. This was made possible through relentless cost reductions leveraging technology scaling through 19 generations of Flash memory in just 24 years, outpacing Moore's Law. © 2012 IEEE.


Methods are provided for forming a nanostructure array. An example method includes providing a first layer, providing nanostructures dispersed in a solution comprising a liquid form of a spin-on-dielectric, wherein the nanostructures comprise a silsesquioxane ligand coating, disposing the solution on the first layer, whereby the nanostructures form a monolayer array on the first layer, and curing the liquid form of the spin-on-dielectric to provide a solid form of the spin-on-dielectric. Numerous other aspects are provided.

SanDisk Corporation | Date: 2014-08-05

A memory card and methods for testing memory cards are disclosed herein. The memory card has a test interface that allows testing large numbers of memory cards together. Each memory card may have a serial data I/O contact and a test select contact. The memory cards may only send data via the serial data I/O contact when selected, which may allow many memory cards to be connected to the same serial data line during test. Moreover, existing test socket boards may be used without adding additional external circuitry. Thus, cost effective testing of memory cards is provided. In some embodiments, the test interface allows for a serial built in self test (BIST).

Methods and apparatuses for electronic devices such as non-volatile memory devices are described. The memory devices include a multi-layer control dielectric, such as a double or triple layer. The multi-layer control dielectric includes a combination of high-k dielectric materials such as aluminum oxide, hafnium oxide, and/or hybrid films of hafnium aluminum oxide. The multi-layer control dielectric provides enhanced characteristics, including increased charge retention, enhanced memory program/erase window, improved reliability and stability, with feasibility for single or multi state (e.g., two, three or four bit) operation.
