The new BiCS FLASH is based on the third generation 64-layer stacking process featuring 65 percent greater bit density per mm2 than the company's 48-layer, 256GB (32 gigabyte) device.
This technique provides a way to higher stacking and therefore higher bit density in 3D memory.
Areal density equals bit density, or bits of information per inch of a track multiplied by tracks per inch on a drive platter.
