1. A data storing apparatus comprising:

  • a controller; and

    a plurality of nonvolatile memories,wherein each of the nonvolatile memories comprises an address buffer for holding address information supplied from the controller and a plurality of sectors each comprising one word line and each of a plurality of nonvolatile memory cells connected thereto, and is capable of receiving data from the controller, in response to pulses supplied from the controller, and after then starts to program data in sector units as selected by the address information, andwherein the controller (i) transfers data to a first nonvolatile memory of the plurality of nonvolatile memories in response to supplying the pulses to the first nonvolatile memory, (ii) stops supplying the pulses to the first nonvolatile memory with ending of the data outputting, and after then (iii) is capable of starting the transfer of data to a second nonvolatile memory of the plurality of nonvolatile memories in response to supplying the pulses to the second nonvolatile memory.
