From 3D NAND with 128 layers and cells with four or even five bits to a new generation every two years, the steady increase of data volumes brought about by digitization is demanding greater flash storage capacities at lower prices. However, one disadvantage of this progress is that these new technologies steadily decrease writeability (endurance) and storage capacity (retention). In original SLC NAND devices, one bit was stored per cell, so there were only two voltage levels. Each cell could be deleted and rewritten 100,000 times.
