Micron and Intel today announced an update to their successful NAND joint development partnership that has helped the companies develop and deliver industry-leading NAND technologies to market.
The announcement involves the companies’ mutual agreement to work independently on future generations of 3D NAND. The companies have agreed to complete development of their third generation of 3D NAND technology, which will be delivered toward the end of this year and extending into early 2019. Beyond that technology node, both companies will develop 3D NAND independently in order to better optimize the technology and products for their individual business needs.
Micron and Intel expect no change in the cadence of their respective 3D NAND technology development of future nodes. The two companies are currently ramping products based on their second generation of 3D NAND (64 layer) technology.
Both companies will also continue to jointly develop and manufacture 3D XPoint™ at the Intel-Micron Flash Technologies (IMFT) joint venture fab in Lehi, Utah, which is now entirely focused on 3D XPoint memory production.Add a comment
Today at International CES 2018, Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, announced the RC100 Series, a new line of NVMe™ (NVM Express™) M.2 solid state drives (SSDs) for the retail, e-tail, system integrator, and channel markets. The new RC100 Series features a powerful yet cost-effective design, making NVMe storage accessible to everyone.
Starting with Toshiba Memory Corporation’s own state-of-the-art 64-layer, 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level cell) BiCS FLASH™ and in-house developed SSD controller in a single package, the RC100 was built to offer consumers a viable alternative to pricier high-end NVMe SSDs. In addition to affordability, RC100 SSDs are designed for efficiency, delivering a power-optimized storage solution particularly sought after by mobile users looking to increase battery life.Add a comment
Plugable’s new 480GB external NVME SSD drive hits performance levels not possible before Thunderbolt 3. Connect the drive to a Thunderbolt 3 port to gain 480GB of extra storage with amazing speeds of up to 2400+ MB/sec read and 1200+ MB/sec write, all without the need for an external power connection. These speeds make this external drive a no-compromise performance solution for video editing, backup, and any tasks which demand maximum disk performance.
“Thunderbolt™ 3 is a revolutionary technology,” said Bernie Thompson, CEO of Plugable Technologies. “We’ve created our line of high-end docks, adapters, and drives to show it off.”
“Plugable’s new external drive makes the most of the performance and power provided by Thunderbolt™ 3,” said Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel®. “Thunderbolt 3 enables portable drives like this to hit peak performance, all over a single Thunderbolt 3 cable.”Add a comment
This week at International CES 2018, Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, will be highlighting the use of its industry-leading BiCS FLASH™ 3D memory in several applications – including its new lineup of NVMe SSDs, the RC100 Series.
At CES, TMA is collaborating with its customers and technology partners to take on the future – together. Toshiba was the first company in the world to announce 3D flash memory technology, which effectively addresses the processing, storage and management of the growing volume of data generated worldwide. Recent announcements see the company continuing to lead the industry forward, including the introduction of a 96-layer 512Gb die; the debut of the industry’s first flash memory device with quadruple-level cell (QLC) technology; and the addition of Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology. Already enabling the enterprise, data center, PC and mobile applications of today, TMA’s BiCS FLASH has paved the way for the applications of tomorrow. In everything from artificial intelligence and virtual reality to a growing number of automotive applications (such as infotainment), high performance computing and the ever-expanding “internet of things,” storage density needs will climb higher and higher – and BiCS FLASH was designed with this in mind.
CES – the biggest stage for consumer technology breakthroughs – is the ideal forum for the inventor of NAND flash to introduce its latest innovations. Harnessing the power of its state-of-the-art 64-layer BiCS FLASH 3D memory, TMA’s latest SSD innovation sits right in the sweet spot between SATA SSDs and higher-end NVMe SSDs. The new RC100 Series was designed to address the entire spectrum of computing – and make the benefits of NVMe accessible to the mainstream market.Add a comment
ADAM elements will be present at this year’s CES in Las Vegas and showcase a new member of its highly successful and multi-awarded storage extension family for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices – the iKlips II. Connected to any of these via the Lightning interface, users can easily free up space on their mobile devices and use the iKlips app, now updated to version 4, for a multitude of other tasks.
Extra storage for iOS devices
The Apple MFI-certified (made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) iKlips II comes with both a Lightning and a USB 3.1 connector, so data exchange between iOS devices and a macOS or Windows computer is a breeze. Available with capacities of 32, 64 and 128 GB, these stylish flash drives support the exFAT file system, so there is no limit to the size of individual files. The iKlips II comes with a 3-year warranty. It will be available in the colours grey or red from mid-January 2018. Prices (MSRP) are as follow: £50 for the 32 GB, £70 for the 64 GB and £90 for the 128 GB version.
iKlips iOS app now in version 4
The iKlips 4 app with its redesigned user interface is not just for file management, sharing and backup but it turns the iKlips into a multimedia recording and playback device: record and playback photos and 4K movies directly to/from its external storage. It also supports Touch ID, so even in case the iKlips gets lost, personal data are safe. The new app is compatible with the latest iPhone 8 and X. Under iOS 11, it works perfectly with the new File app to collect all files in one place for the users’ browsing, searching and organising convenience. However, it is also compatible with all devices running iOS 8 and up, and it can be used with all members of the iKlips product family.

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today launched the UV230 and UV330 USB Flash drives, adding to its extensive range of portable storage devices. The UV230 works in USB 2.0 and is offered in up to 64GB, while the UV330 operates in much faster USB 3.1 and ships in up to 128GB. The two share a capless design where the connector extends and retracts using a quick-slide mechanism. ADATA remains committed to its USB Flash drive global leadership role and will continue releasing new models as market needs evolve.
USB – an evergreen classic for all needs and budgets
From USB 2.0 to USB 3.1 5Gbps, ADATA recognizes demand for diverse USB Flash drives remains strong. Consumers want functionality, style, and ease of use as well as affordability. Hence ADATA delivers: from the entry-level UV230 to the vastly speedier UV330, and their many contemporaries in the ADATA catalog. From 16GB UV230s to 128GB UV330, just these two classic models cover much ground and offer a wealth of options for users that need to quickly save and move data.
Capless, quick-slide build for hassle-free mobility
ADATA designers have long preferred USB Flash drives with no cap, as with such a design there is less clutter and fewer parts to potentially misplace. The UV230 and UV330 are capless, with extended USB connectors that neatly protrude and retract into the main body of the drive using a slider that can be easily controlled with one finger. This intuitive design helps make the UV230 and UV330 extremely satisfying to use on the go.
