Flash will save everyone of us

Toshiba has launched of its 15nm process technology at least for 2-bit-per-cell 128 gigabit (16 gigabytes) NAND Flash memory. The technology will kill off second generation 19nm process technology and full production with the new technology next week at Toshiba's Fab 5 in Yokkaichi.

Chips based on the new processing technology will have better peripheral circuitry technology. They will have the write speed as chips formed with 19nm process technology, but boost the data transfer rate to 533 megabits per second which is 1.3 times faster, particularly if it is going downhill with the wind behind it.

In its press release, the company said it would develop controllers for embedded NAND flash memory in parallel and introduce 3-bit-per-cell products for smartphones and tablets, and will subsequently extend application to notebook PCs by developing a controller compliant with solid state drives.

It is not the only outfit using the technology SanDisk said it will release the technology as part of its 1Znm process node. The 15nm technology will ramp on both 2-bit-per-cell (X2) and 3-bit-per-cell (X3) NAND flash memory architectures, with production ramp to begin in the second half of 2014.

Siva Sivaram, senior vice president, memory technology, SanDisk said the technology will allow the company to deliver the world's smallest and most cost effective 128 gigabit chips. The 1Z technology will be utilized across a broad range of products, the company reveals, including memory cards and enterprise SSDs, he said.

I couldn’t find the article at the link.

Also:

“.....particularly if it is going downhill with the wind behind it.”

Is this some kind of spoof?

Its a Tech site in England,...and they do these kinds of statements.

No Editors either....it seems.

Will it make up for our compromised submarine propeller secrets?

F*** Toshiba.

This article seems to have lost something in translation - sense.
Like my Canon 3 in 1 printer/scanner... when it powers down the UI screen says,"Please wait awhile." Oy.

And SanDisk as well announces 15 Nanometer Technology. SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash storage solutions, today announced the availability of its 1Z-nanometer (nm) technology, the most advanced NAND flash process node in the world. The 15 nm technology will ramp on both two bits-per-cell (X2) and three bits-per-cell (X3) NAND flash memory architectures with production ramp to begin in the second half of 2014.

"We are thrilled to continue our technology leadership with the industry's most advanced flash memory process node, enabling us to deliver the world's smallest and most cost effective 128 gigabit chips," said Dr. Siva Sivaram, senior vice president, memory technology, SanDisk. "We are delighted that these new chips will allow us to further differentiate and expand our portfolio of NAND flash solutions."

The 15nm technology uses many advanced process innovations and cell-design solutions to scale the chips along both axes. SanDisk's All-Bit-Line (ABL) architecture, which contains proprietary programming algorithms and multi-level data storage management schemes, has been implemented in the 1Z technology to deliver NAND flash solutions with no sacrifice in memory performance or reliability. SanDisk's 1Z technology will be utilized across its broad range of solutions, from removable cards to enterprise SSDs.
