Overview of Award-Winning Technology
Flash memory is used in a variety of applications for storing data, including smartphones and data centers, and demand is expected to grow.
The award-winning three-dimensional flash memory technology is a groundbreaking approach that greatly simplified the fabrication process for stacking memory cells vertically to realize high-density three-dimensional flash memory. Whereas conventional stacking required repeated deposition and patterning processes for memory cell array fabrication, this technology first stacks the materials for the memory cells and then makes each cell simultaneously using a one-time patterning process, thereby significantly reducing the processing steps. As miniaturization technology employed in conventional two-dimensional flash memory is approaching its physical limits, high-capacity, high-performance three-dimensional flash memory technology is now increasingly applied in the market’s leading products. After commercializing three-dimensional flash memory BiCS FLASH™ in 2015, Kioxia has been working on increasing the stacking density. Last month, Kioxia announced its 218-layer high-capacity, high-performance three-dimensional flash memory BiCS FLASH™.
This three-dimensional flash memory technology has also been recognized with the Imperial Invention Prize from the 2020 National Commendation for Invention and received the 2021 IEEE Andrew S. Grove Award.
Guided by its mission of “uplifting the world with ‘memory,’” Kioxia is committed to its research and technology development that brings value to people across the world.
Kioxia is a world leader in memory solutions, dedicated to the development, production and sale of flash memory and solid-state drives (SSDs). In April 2017, its predecessor Toshiba Memory was spun off from Toshiba Corporation, the company that invented NAND flash memory in 1987. Kioxia is committed to uplifting the world with memory by offering products, services and systems that create choice for customers and memory-based value for society. Kioxia's innovative 3D flash memory technology, BiCS FLASH™, is shaping the future of storage in high-density applications, including advanced smartphones, PCs, SSDs, automotive and data centers.

Adva Network Security and Quantum Optics Jena showcase German-made QKD solution5.6.2023 15:00:00 EEST | Press release
Adva Network Security and Quantum Optics Jena today announced a successful joint demo of entanglement-based quantum key distribution (QKD) technology. The field trial leveraged quantum key generation and verification technology from Quantum Optics Jena in combination with Adva Network Security’s Layer 1 encryption solution to establish a secure optical communication channel between data centers owned and operated by the Thüringer Landesrechenzentrum (TLRZ), the IT service provider for the state’s administration in Thuringia. The test represents a milestone in the development of entanglement-based commercial QKD systems, as it is the world’s first complete integration into an IT infrastructure. By delivering quantum-secured keys to the encryptor of the high-bitrate optical channel, the team was able to show how data traffic could resist quantum attacks on the link between the data centers. The demo represents a significant leap forward for quantum-safe communications made in Germany and
