• N-bit ECC
    • refers to an ECC scheme capable of correcting N bit errors in 512 bytes of data
  • The floating gate is in complete electrical isolation from the other components of the transistor. The purpose of the floating gate is to trap electrons. Since the gate is electrically isolated from the other components electrons can neither enter nor leave this region under normal operating conditions. This phenomenon is what allows the Floating Gate MOSFET to be used as non-volatile memory.
