Flash memory has gained tremendous popularity in recent years. A variant of flash, referred to as NAND flash, is widely used in consumer electronics products, such as cell-phones and music players while NAND flash based Solid-State Disks (SSDs) are increasingly displacing hard disk drives as the primary storage device in laptops, desktops, and even datacenters. Computer architects have recently begun exploring the use NAND flash, from SSD organizations to disk caches and even new flash-based server architectures. In order to study this design space, architects require simulation tools that can provide detailed insights into the behavior of flash memory. This article presents electrical and mathematical models of a NAND device and propose a novel method to resolve the system. Results show that, thanks to the modeling approaches used, the NAND devices are optimized.
