A 3D-integrated Solid State Drive (SSD) with the boost converter can achieve both the low power and the fast write-operation at the small die area of the NAND flash memory. The performance of the boost converter, however, is critically affected by the inductor, because the output voltage of the boost converter, the rising time, and the energy consumption during the boost are determined by the inductor. Therefore, this paper proposes a design methodology of the inductor of the boost converter for the 3D SSD. By using the boost converter with the optimized inductor, the energy during write-operation of the proposed 1.8-V 3D-SSD is decreased by 68% compared with the conventional 3.3-V 3D-SSD with the charge pump.
