Andrey Petrov / Alexey Vasil’ev / Anastasia Ulanova / Alexander Chumakov / Alexander Nikiforov
Published Online: 2014-08-16 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/s11534-014-0503-6


The paper provides experimental results of flash memory loss data investigation. Possible mechanisms of charge loss from storage element are reviewed. We provide some guidelines for flash memory evaluation to space application.

Keywords: flash memory; single event upsets; total dose
