232-layer NAND flash memory

The next level of storage performance and density for a new wave of end-to-end technology innovation.

More layers, more innovation, more advanced

Micron extends 3D NAND technology leadership with our 232-layer NAND.

High performance

With the industry’s fastest NAND I/O speed of 2.4 GB/s, Micron's 232-layer NAND delivers the low-latency and high-throughput requirements of data-centric workloads, such as artificial intelligence, unstructured databases, real-time analytics, and cloud computing.1

Data density

World's densest NAND offers customers design flexibility while enabling the highest TLC density per square millimeter ever produced at 14.6 Gb/mm2. The areal density is between 35% and 100% greater than competing TLC products.2

Ubiquitous applications

Greater storage capacity — up to 1 terabit per die and 2 terabytes per package, allowed by increased layer stacking — provides more storage in more devices, which enables smarter, more functional devices of all kinds, from edge to cloud.

The foundation for a new wave of end-to-end innovation

NAND is essential for keeping up with the insatiable demand for high-performance, responsive storage — from massive data centers to the smallest devices. Micron extends NAND leadership with the next-generation 232-layer NAND technology that enables faster, higher-capacity storage solutions.

First to market, second to none: The world’s first 232-layer NAND

Micron established NAND technology leadership in 2020 with the announcement of the first 176-layer 3D NAND. Micron extends this leadership with the availability and commercial ramp of the next-generation 232-layer NAND technology.


Micron NAND technology: Innovation and leadership extended

Delivering even denser storage and NAND design innovations provide new levels of performance and density for uses from edge to cloud.

What can you do with 232 layers?

Micron CVP and GM, Jeremy Werner, and Pure Storage VP and GM, Bill Cerreta, sat down with industry analyst, Patrick Moorhead, to talk about Micron's new 232-layer NAND. They discussed whether layers or density matter more, how NAND can help address increasing demands on storage, and some use cases for 232-layer NAND.
