Intel And Micron Announce World's First 20nm 128Gb MLC NAND Flash Device

E-mail Print

Intel Corporation and Micron Technology, Inc., today announced a new benchmark in NAND flash technology -- the world's first 20 nanometer (nm), 128 gigabit (Gb), multilevel-cell (MLC) device. The companies also announced mass production of their 64Gb 20nm NAND, which further extends the companies' leadership in NAND process technology.

Developed through Intel and Micron's joint-development venture, IM Flash Technologies (IMFT), the new 20nm monolithic 128Gb device is the first in the industry to enable a terabit (Tb) of data storage in a fingertip-size package by using just eight die. It also provides twice the storage capacity and performance of the companies' existing 20nm 64Gb NAND device. The 128Gb device meets the high-speed ONFI 3.0 specification to achieve speeds of 333 megatransfers per second (MT/s), providing customers with a more cost-effective solid-state storage solution for today's slim, sleek product designs, including tablets, smartphones and high-capacity solid-state drives (SSDs.)

Samsung Announces High-Performance mSATA SSDs For Ultra-Slim Notebook PCs

E-mail Print

Samsung Electronics today announced volume production of SSDs (solid state drives) that support the Mini-Serial ATA (mSATA) interface. The drives are designed for use in ultra-slim notebooks such as Ultrabook PCs.

"Samsung's compact mSATA SSDs will provide performance of the highest quality in helping to deliver the advanced ultra-slim PCs that consumers have been wanting," said Myungho Kim, vice president of memory marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics. "Samsung plans to continue providing timely delivery of advanced SSD solutions, while preserving its leadership position in the SSD market for notebook PCs."

Combining Samsung's new high-performance mSATA SSDs with the latest multi-core processors will help PC manufacturers to substantially improve performance of their Ultrabook-class portable PCs up to that of notebook PCs, in meeting ever-increasing consumer needs.

The new Samsung mSATA SSDs will be available in 256, 128 and 64 gigabyte (GB) densities as main storage devices, and also at 32GB for caching. They measure 50.95 x 30 x 3.8 millimeters and weigh a mere eight grams.

The new SSDs will be part of the highly popular Samsung PM830 product family that was introduced earlier this year. They make use of Samsung's advanced 20 nanometer class NAND flash memory components which incorporate the toggle DDR interface.

STEC Announces ZeusIOPS XE Enterprise-Class SSDs

E-mail Print

STEC, Inc., The SSD Company, a leading global provider of solid-state drive (SSD) technologies and products, today announced that its flagship ZeusIOPS® SSD family has been expanded to include a new ultra-high endurance model. Purpose-built for write-intensive enterprise applications, STEC’s new ZeusIOPS XE (Extreme Endurance) SSD is a Multi-Level Cell (MLC) flash-based drive that utilizes STEC’s CellCare™ technology to enable at least 30 full capacity writes per day, every day, for five years. Since these new high endurance drives can withstand more writes before they wear-out, they reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) in the data center. The new ZeusIOPS XE SSD will be featured in STEC’s booth (#107) beginning today at Server Design Summit (Santa Clara Marriott Hotel).

stec_zeusiops_xe_ssd.jpg

As data growth continues into the zettabytes and is expected to double every two years, accelerating access to data using enterprise SSDs as a server caching solution delivers strong value for application acceleration. However, caching software increases the writes to the SSD requiring more endurance from the drive to withstand drive wear that would otherwise deteriorate the storage media in a much shorter time. A similar problem occurs when advanced auto-tiering software places the most active hot data on SSDs as a priority in the storage hierarchy. For these types of write-intensive applications, many competing SSDs become challenged, wear out more quickly, require more frequent  in-field replacements, and result in higher maintenance costs.
