Eitan Yaakobi is Making Flash Memory Better

Eitan Yaakobi earned a 2010 Intel Ph.D. Fellowship

"The number of times you can erase the memory is limited,” said Eitan Yaakobi, an electrical engineering PhD student at UC San Diego. “We are working on advanced coding schemes for flash to extend the lifetime and reliability of the memory so the next generation of flash will be more reliable and will have better endurance.”

Yaakobi is advised by professors Paul Siegel, Alexander Vardy and Jack Wolf from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.
