Flash memory is an electronic non-volatile memory with wide applications. Due to the substantial impact of block erasure operations on the speed, reliability and longevity of flash memories, writing schemes that enable data to be modified numerous times without incurring the block erasure is desirable. This requirement is addressed by floating codes, a coding scheme that jointly stores and rewrites data and maximizes the rewriting capability of flash memories. In this paper, we present several new floating code constructions. They include both codes with specific parameters and general code constructions that are asymptotically optimal. We also present bounds to the performance of floating codes.
