FLASH MEMORY DEFINITION (continued): …  code such as the basic input/output system (BIOS) in a personal computer. When BIOS needs to be changed (rewritten), the flash memory can be written to in block (rather than byte) sizes, making it easy to update.

The erasure is caused by Fowler-Nordheim tunneling in which electrons pierce through a thin dielectric …
