SanDisk iSSD

SanDisk Corp. opens up a new category of storage devices with its embedded solid state drives (SSD). The company's integrated SSD (iSSD) are smaller than postage stamps and offer higher capacities and performance than existing storage solutions. The device is suited for use in mobile computing platforms such as tablet PCs and ultra-thin notebooks.

The SanDisk iSSD supports the SATA interface in a small BGA package that can be soldered onto any motherboard, and is fast enough for use with advanced OS in next-generation mobile computing platforms.

The device offers 160MBit/s sequential read and 100MBit/s sequential write speeds for greater system responsiveness. With no moving parts, the tiny, robust drive is designed to deliver the durability needed by portable devices that are frequently dropped or jostled. SanDisk iSSD offers a substantial level of design flexibility for OEMs who seek to create the next generation of tablets and ultra thin mobile devices based on the standard SATA interface.

The SanDisk iSSD is available now for sampling to OEMs, and is being evaluated by top-tier manufacturers. Measuring 16mm x 20mm x 1.85mm and weighing less than one gram, the drive uses a BGA form factor and a SATA interface, and is compatible with all leading OS. SanDisk iSSD is available in capacities ranging from 4GB to 64GB, with pricing dependent upon the quantity ordered.
