  • Patent number: 10614887
    Abstract: In a method of programming a three-dimensional nonvolatile memory device, a program loop is executed at least one time. The program loop includes a programming step for programming selected memory cells among memory cells and a verifying step for verifying whether the selected memory cells are program-passed or not. In programming the selected memory cells, a level of a voltage being applied to a common source line connected to the memory cells in common may be changed. Thus, in a program operation, power consumption which is needed to charge-discharge the common source line can be decreased while increasing boosting efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10153050
    Abstract: A memory device has a memory cell array with memory cells. A page buffer group generates page buffer signals according to a verify read result of the memory cells. A page buffer decoding unit generates a decoder output signal corresponding to the number of fail bits from the page buffer signals based on a first reference current. A slow bit counter outputs a count result corresponding to the number of fail bits from the decoder output signal based on a second reference current corresponding to M times the first reference current, where M is a positive integer. A pass/fail checking unit determines a program outcome with respect to the memory cells based on the count result and outputs a pass signal or a fail signal based on the determined program outcome.
