Nand flash

QLC NAND flash memory

Micron’s 232-layer quad-level cell (QLC) NAND is a groundbreaking achievement that delivers a layer count and density unprecedented in QLC NAND flash for OEM customers. With its market-leading density and best-in-class performance, Micron's 232-layer QLC NAND enables greater storage density and design flexibility than ever before.

An industry first, again!

After delivering the industry’s first and densest QLC NAND in its 176-layer release, Micron does it again and is now shipping the world's first 232-layer QLC NAND.1 Built with QLC category-leading replacement gate architecture that delivers the industry’s best storage density and enabling use cases across client, mobile, automotive, data center and enterprise storage with:  

  • The world’s densest OEM production NAND.

  • 30% higher density than previous generation 176-layer QLC NAND. 

  • Industry-leading I/O speeds up to 2400 MT/s help provide best-in-class SSD performance.2

Top three benefits of QLC SSDs

Higher density
QLC stores more bits per cell than its predecessor technologies, allowing density and cost-benefit gains. Micron advances these benefits with the world's first 232-layer QLC NAND built with category-leading architecture, enabling the industry’s best storage density and improved access times.1,2

High performance
Industry-leading 2400 MT/s with 24% better read performance and 31% better write performance than the previous generation 176-layer QLC NAND.1,2

Leading density, smaller footprint
Highest gigabytes per square millimeter versus industry-available QLC NAND for OEM manufacturers, allowing more capacity in less space, which is useful for client devices as well as high-capacity data center storage.2
