February 25, 2008 South Korean Solid State Drive (SSD) products manufacturer Mtronstorage Technology has completed the development of a new 1.8 Inch ZIF-type SSD for laptop PCs. Mtron’s new SSD with Single Level Cell (SLC) Flash memory supports PATA (ZIF-type) interface and has a maximum reading speed of 120MB/s and writing speed of 100MB/s - more than 6 times faster than the current 1.8 inch HDD. Therefore when it’s used in laptop PC and UMPC, Mtron claims it delivers much faster performance than desktop PCs. Mtron has also released a 1.8 inch SSD with Multi Level Cell (MLC) Flash memory, which provides maximum memory capacity of up to 128 GB along with a maximum reading speed of 110 MB/s and writing speed of 40MB/s.

February 15, 2008 Today's mobile handsets and portable handheld media players have become multimedia centers, packed with features such as digital cameras, games and music and video players. As the features for such devices increase, so too does the need for greater storage capacity. To address this SanDisk has announced the 16GB iNAND embedded Flash drive (EFD). The 16GB iNAND doubles the capacity of Sandisk’s 8GB iNAND and, thanks to recent advances in multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash technology, retains the standard JEDEC, (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council), 12x16mm package. Adhering to the JEDEC package and ball-out requirements, common throughout the industry, provides virtually “plug and play” integration and allows the drives to be designed into mobile handsets quickly. Additionally, iNAND devices utilize the industry-leading and field-proven SD interface and are designed to support mobile TV, multimedia downloading and other storage-hungry applications on portable systems such as mobile handsets, digital audio/MP3 players, gaming applications, GPS applications, personal media players and PDAs.
