SanDisk Corp. has introduced a line of flash memory-based solid-state drives (SSDs) that are designed for ultralow-cost PCs (ULCPCs) or "netbooks" that give users an enhanced experience while surfing the Internet using wireless communication. The SanDisk Parallel ATA solid-state drive (pSSD) eliminates the need for an HDD and can store both the operating system and application data for these new devices.

The pSSD devices are built using the company's multilevel cell (MLC) and single-level cell (SLC) flash memory. The SSD modules will be available in 4-, 8- and 16Gbyte capacities, with a streaming read speed of 39Mbit/s and a streaming write performance of 17Mbit/s. The pSSDs support both Linux and Microsoft Windows XP operating systems.

The SanDisk pSSD solid-state drives went on display at the Computex Taipei event.
