SanDisk recently optimised its 19nm iNAND flash memory for use in tablet computers based on Intel's Bay Trail 22nm Atom processor. Sandisk claims that with the optimizations, the iNAND Extreme operates faster and boasts more responsiveness with the processor. The company is currently supplying samples of the memory for release to makers of Android and Windows 8 tablet computers.

The iNAND products come in a variety of storage capacities, ranging from 4 to 128Gb and in iNAND, iNAND Ultra, and iNAND Extreme versions that meet the eMMC interface specification. The components are available in embedded flash drive and multi-chip package forms. The company claims that its iNAND Extreme component improves synchronisation speeds while also enhancing operating system responsiveness. iNAND Extreme offers sequential read/write speeds of up to 150Mb per second.

SanDisk is focused on developing application-specific memory products and has partnered with Toshiba for the production of memory die. The two companies are co-investors in the manufacturing joint venture, Flash Forward Ltd. in Japan.
