SanDisk Breaks Flash Technology Record


SanDisk and Toshiba announced that they have a new fabricating process that allows them to make 19-nanometer chips. A first for NAND chip technology.

The chips are expected to go into mass production later this year, which simple put means that you’ll be seeing massive increases in storage capacity on cell phones, flash drives, tablets, memory cards and pretty much any other small memory form factor. The new fabrication process should also help increase the memory and bring down the cost of SSD’s.

Without boring you with too much detail, current NAND chips wok by storing one bit of information on what's known as a single-level-cell. SanDisk's new process allows for 2-bit-per-cell through a newer multi-level-cell technology, made possible from the smaller 19nm fabrication process.
