An inductive-coupling programmable bus for NAND flash memory access in Solid State Drive (SSD) is presented. Compared to the conventional SSD, this wireless interface using relayed transmission reduces power consumption to 1/2, I/O circuitlayout area to 1/40, and achieves a data rate of 2 Gb/s in 0.18 m CMOS process. In addition, since this wireless interface enables one package to contain 64 chips, the number of packages is reduced to 1/8.
