Flash Memory is a type of nonvolatile memory that can be erased and rewritten in units called blocks. Flash is rugged, small, low-cost, low-power, and fast. It allows for compact systems with simple startup and low power consumption. It is ideal for consumer applications such as cellphones, digital cameras and music players, and is also useful in computers, automobiles, communications systems and military/defense applications. It has largely replaced disk drives for storage in applications where its higher cost is balanced by its smaller size, greater ruggedness, and lower power consumption.

Flash memory is a $50B annual business.
