Abstract A flash memory device and a programming method for use in a flash memory device are disclosed. According to the programming method, first, one of data bits to be programmed starts to be programmed in a corresponding memory cell. Then, before the previous program operation is ended, the next of the data bits starts to be programmed. By such a program algorithm, although the integration degree of the flash memory device is increased, a sufficient amount of current required to program can be supplied without an increment of the size of the integrated circuit die due to the charge pump circuit.
