  • Publication number: 20200135285
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to increase a writing speed to a flash memory while suppressing an increase in noise. In the high-speed write mode, the memory controller simultaneously performs a first write operation with a second write current having a current value smaller than the first write current with respect to a second number of memory cells having a larger number than the first write current. At the completion of the first write operation, the memory controller simultaneously performs the second write operation by the third write current having a larger current value than the second write current with respect to the memory cell determined by the sense amplifier to have not completed the write operation in the determination process.
