SanDisk today announced a new breed of SSDs that can store huge amount of data in a very small size. The size we’re talking about is smaller than a postage stamp and SanDisk’s integrated SSDs or simply, the iSSD can store 64GB of data in that small chip.
Shrinking the chip size means computer and tablet manufacturers can also reduce the size of their devices, thus making them ultra-thin and highly portable.
The iSSD is the first SSD that supports SATA interface in a small BGA (Ball Grid Array) package, has sequential read/write speed of 160/100MB per second and boasts SSD advantages like no moving parts that enhances its durability and consumes low power.
The SanDisk iSSD is currently available for sampling to OEMs in capacities ranging from 4GB to 64GB.
