Flash Memory Reliability, Life & Wear

Flash memory has a finite lifetime. This means that Flash memory reliability and life are issues that need to be accounted when considering its use.When Flash memory was first introduced it had a limited number of write / cycles and Flash memory wear was a significant issue.Now fabrication processes have been significantly improved, and although Flash memory still has a limited life, the number of write cycles it can endure is very high, and along with wear levelling algorithms used, this means that the life of Flash memory is not normally an issue.
