Toshiba’s new technology dramatically increases the capacity and speed of memory cards and SSDs.
Toshiba is developing a prototype of flash memory, each of which has 166 GB of chips. The 96-NAND NAND chips have a 96-layer Layer in each cell with 4 bits, while the current 3-bit memory slot only allows the development of 32-gigabyte memory chips.
Each packet of these flash drives includes 16 chips, in other words, Toshiba technology will allow the production of 2.66TB flash memory, which will be the first step in the development of memory cards and SSDs faster and more powerful.
Western Digital is claiming to launch the next generation of San Diego brand products with these chips.
Toshiba, as the inventor of NAND chip technology, sold his memory section because he had to spend $ 750 billion ($ 6.7 billion) after the bankruptcy of the Westminster Nuclear Unit and financial scandals to remain on the Tokyo Stock Exchange .
Though the Toshiba semiconductor industry has been entrusted to the Bain Capital holding of Apple, Dell, Sigitt and Kingston at a staggering $ 18 billion price, Western Digital still continues its partnership with Japan.
Despite the continuous improvement of NAND flash memory technology, the price of memory cards and SSDs has grown steadily due to the lack of these chips until recently. However, the decline in demand for personal computers, smartphones and virtual currency extraction equipment has led to lower prices for NAND chips.
Toshiba’s faster and higher-capacity chips will not only bring more profits to the company, it will also boost the use of this technology.
