SanDisk Launches Solid State Drives
SanDisk Corporation a global leader in flash memory today introduced a line of flash memory based solid-state drives (SSDs) designed for Ultra Low-Cost PCs (ULCPC).
Ultra Low-Cost PCs are inexpensive handheld laptops smaller than a Notebook Computer, which are easy to carry and cost in the range of $250 (Rs.10,500) to $350 (Rs.14,700).
Solid State Drives (SSD) designed for Ultra Low-Cost PC (ULCPC) eliminates the need for a hard disk drive and can store both the operating system and application data.
The new SSD modules supports both Linux ,Windows XP Operating Systems and is available in 4-, 8- and 16-gigabyte (GB)1 capacities, with a streaming read speed of 39 megabytes per second (MB/s)2 and a streaming write performance of 17MB/s.2
“We’re excited to be involved in this emerging market of ULCPCs, which take the concept of affordability into new directions – ones that are ideally suited to the multiple benefits of SanDisk’s technology,” said Rich Heye, Senior Vice President and General Manager at SanDisk’s Solid State Drives (SSD) Business Unit.
“Based on consumer response to some of the first ULCPCs, these devices are quickly developing a popular following. Our new pSSDs are enablers for manufacturers to create what could become the next wave of personal and portable computing devices.”
SanDisk’s pSSD solid state drives, which are expected to be available in August, are built using the company’s reliable Multi-Level Cell (MLC) and Single-Level Cell (SLC) flash memory. This technology is produced at fabrication plants in Yokkaichi, Japan, where SanDisk and its partner, Toshiba Corporation, share the output. The two companies have co-developed many of the designs and technologies in NAND flash.
