ADATA Technology, the world leader in DRAM modules and flash memory products, launched the industry first ever USB flash drive N909 featuring with the latest eSATA+USB 2.0 COMBO interface, designed to outperform conventional USB 2.0 USB drives with enhanced data transfer speed. The N909 adopts the 4-channnel technology that sets to boost data transfer rates up to 90MB/s and 50 MB/s in sequential read/write performance respectively.
N909 is the first innovative storage device equipped with eSATA+USB 2.0 combo interface with a single connector. Apart from using in eSATA+USB 2.0 combo port, N909 supports the easy plug-and-play on compatible platforms and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 port. In addiction, the combo interface also provides an access for charging via the USB interface which used to be considered as an inconvenient problem on the eSATA interface. Combining the revolutionary combo interface, N909 offers the best solution for transferring large amount of data compared to the preceding USB 2.0. In other words, a 4GB avi only needs 59 seconds to be read as opposed to 4.2 minutes via a conventional USB 2.0 interface.
Active Media Products, a leading manufacturer of DOMs, SSDs and USB drives, today announced a new line of IDE Flash DOM (Disk on Module) drives that are smaller, lighter, faster and more reliable than rotating media, making them ideal for use in servers, networking, industrial, military and embedded applications. These new Parallel ATA flash disk modules are offered in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities, built with highly reliable MLC NAND Flash.
"We developed these PATA DOMs in response to demand from our industrial customers who need relatively small but highly reliable storage drives for use in server appliances," explained Active Media Products VP of Sales, Jerry Thomson. These DOMs have been validated on the latest Opteron™ 6100 (Magny Cours) server motherboards to ensure compatibility with the newest server hardware. Designed with industry standard 40-pin and 44-pin female IDE connectors, they are compatible with myriads of existing motherboards and systems.
The high-end digital camera market is flourishing and expanding with each passing day. To keep up with the latest trends and meet current consumer demand for memory capacity, Power Quotient International (PQI) has expanded all CF memory card capacity to the maximum 64GB. PQI is the first personal storage device manufacturer to comprehensively upgrade its full CF memory card product line capacity. PQI CF memory cards include the 150X, 233X, 300X, and 600X series. All products provide consumers with a full range of capacity solutions.
Over the past few years, there has been a great upsurge in consumer requirements for multimedia audio and video. In line with the continuous increase in digital camera megapixels, memory card specs have also been upgraded. To conform to the use of high resolution digital imaging products, having a large capacity memory card is clearly of primary importance. All PQI memory cards have been upgraded to the maximum capacity of 64GB, which is ample enough to resolve the problem of users' fear of insufficient memory and lets you capture images of every spectacular moment at will!
Samsung Electronics and Toshiba Corporation today announced their commitment to development of the most advanced high-performance NAND flash memory technology available today – a double data rate (DDR) NAND flash memory with a 400 megabit-per-second (Mbps) interface, toggle DDR 2.0 specification. The high-performance NAND memory is expected to be of immediate benefit to a host of NAND-based mobile and consumer electronics applications, especially where there is consumer demand for an extra stretch in performance. Both companies will support a standard industry specification to enable broad-scale acceptance of this new high-speed technology.
“Our introduction of high-speed 30 nanometer class* NAND late last year served as an initial pathway for stimulating acceptance of the new high-performance toggle DDR technology,” said Dong-Soo Jun, executive vice president, memory marketing, Samsung Electronics. “Now, continual upgrades in high-speed performance will create new applications and broader market opportunities for NAND flash memory. The rapid adoption of fourth generation (4G) smartphones, tablet PCs and solid state drives is expected to drive demand for a broader range of high-performance NAND solutions.”
Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced three new capacities in its highly-acclaimed Force Series™ solid-state-drives, adding 40GB, 80GB, and 160GB models to the current lineup of 60GB, 120GB and 240GB SSDs.
Corsair Force Series solid-state drives are based on the SandForce® SF-1200 SSD Processor, and includes their DuraWrite™ technology for incredible read and write speeds. Unlike most other current generation solid-state drives, the unique architecture of the SF-1200 SSD Processor allows lower capacity drives to perform with nearly the same performance as larger capacity SSDs. All three Force Series models support the TRIM† command, so write performance is maintained over time.
EDGE Tech Corp, a leading U.S.-based supplier of DRAM and flash memory upgrades, portable computing products, storage devices, and other experience-enhancing technology solutions, adds two new 32GB flash drives to its established DiskGO® product line: the DiskGO® Mini—designed for convenient, easy-to-use storage, and the DiskGO® Backup—which includes innovative automatic backup software.
