SK hynix Inc. announced today that it has developed and starts mass-producing the world’s first 128-Layer 1Tb (Terabit) TLC (Triple-Level Cell) 4D NAND Flash, only eight months after the Company announced the 96-Layer 4D NAND Flash last year.
The 128-Layer 1Tb NAND chip offers the industry's highest vertical stacking with more than 360 billion NAND cells, each of which stores 3 bits, per one chip. To achieve this, SK hynix applied innovative technologies, such as “ultra-homogeneous vertical etching technology,” “high-reliability multi-layer thin-film cell formation technology,” and ultra-fast low-power circuit design, to its own 4D NAND technology.Add a comment

Today Team Group launches two solid state drives with different features. The internal model, which under Team Group’s gaming brand T-FORCE, is CARDEA II M.2 solid state drive. This solid state drive emphasizes on features like PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and cooling module with patent gaming fin type design. The portable solid state drive PD400 uses the latest generation of high speed USB 3.1 Gen1 interface. It is lightweight, easy to carry and also has three major features: pressure resistant, shock proof, water proof. The two internal and external solid state drives offers solutions for the need of performance and appearance. Consumers not only can possess the latest visual design, but also enjoy the great advance in performance of storage devices.
T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA series release the CARDEA II solid state drive with improved performance. The gaming fin type cooling module has patented design (Taiwan Utility Model Patent No. M541645), and has passed rigorous tests and burn-in test. It can be cooled down about 10 degrees in a closed space, and 30 degrees in an open space. The radiating performance can be increased by 15% comparing with traditional cooling module. Module’s superconductivity – thermally conductive adhesive can effectively accelerate the heat transfer process, so the speed performance won’t be affected by high temperature anymore. CARDEA II uses PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and supports the latest NVMe 1.3 protocol. It has a truly outstanding sequential read/write speed of up to 3400/3000 MB/s, and random read/write speed of up to 180K/160K IOPS.Add a comment

Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, participated in the PCI-SIG (Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group) Compliance Workshop #109 in Burlingame, California, where several prototype and engineering samples of the company’s upcoming PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs underwent PCI-SIG FYI Gen 4 testing.
The fourth generation of the PCIe interface, PCIe 4.0, doubles available bandwidth for graphics cards, SSDs, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet cards. The new standard will enable SSDs in particular to provide much higher performance than previous PCIe 3.0 SSDs, especially sequential read performance.
An early participant seeking to enable PCIe 4.0 technologies, Toshiba Memory leverages its technology leadership role and actively collaborates with PCI-SIG and other member companies to accelerate adoption of the new interface standard.Add a comment

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories announces that it has upgraded the endurance rating of its industrial-grade 3D TLC solid state drives (SSD) to 3K P/E cycles, bringing their endurance, reliability, and stability up to par with 2D MLC SSDs. Combined with their ability to operate in a wide range of temperatures (-40° C to 85° C), they are excellent solutions that provide the durability and consistency required by applications such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), Intelligent Transportation Systems, surveillance systems, data centers, network operations, defense systems, and energy exploration.
ADATA 3D TLC SSDs Give 2D MLC SSDs a Run for Their Money
The continual improvements in NAND Flash design and manufacturing, as well as the ever-changing demands of the market, have driven 3D NAND to become a popular memory solution across many industries. Despite its growing prominence, 3D NAND has had two major deficiencies, namely the ability to operate in extreme temperatures and achieve higher endurance ratings. To fill this gap, ADATA has upgraded its industrial-grade 3D TLC SSDs to an endurance rating of 3K P/E cycles, which makes them comparable to 2D MLC SSDs. At the same, ADATA 3D TLC SSDs are also designed to operate in a wide temperature range (-40° C to 85° C), delivering a memory solution that is long-lasting, robust, and reliable.

CRU, a leading provider of high-quality data security, data transport and disaster-proof data storage devices, today announced the launch of the ioSafe 1019+ 5-Bay Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. The device can protect up to 140TB of data from fire or water damage in the event of a disaster and provides data backup, file syncing and sharing, and media management.
The ioSafe 1019+ keeps digital work secure in temperatures up to 1,550 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 30 minutes, which is long enough to survive most fires. In addition, its waterproof capabilities protect data should the device be submerged in up to 10 feet of water for three days. Aside from disaster proofing capabilities, the device offers 256-bit AES encryption, floor or rack mount kits and a full data recovery service.
"Following CRU's acquisition of ioSafe in July 2018, we've been working to release new disaster-proof ioSafe devices," said Randal Barber, CEO of CRU. "We're thrilled to release the 1019+ as the first of these products. The device plays an essential role in disaster planning as it empowers businesses and government agencies with the technology needed to quickly get back up and running when a plumbing or HVAC leak, building fire or major disaster occurs."
The ioSafe 1019+ is based on the Synology DS1019+ NAS device. It uses the Synology Disk Station Manager (DSM) operating system in combination with ioSafe's patented DataCast™ and Hydrosafe™ technologies to protect its hard drives and stored data from damage.Add a comment
