It’s no surprise that as the processors for our Android devices get faster, other areas such as the device’s memory get faster as well. That’s why Sandisk has been working behind the scenes on its flash memory technology and recently announced it has begun customer sampling of flash memory products based on its 1Ynm process technology. For those of you not familiar with this technology, Sandisk is able to develop smaller-scale memory cell sizes, allowing for multi-level data storage management schemes which help bring multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory chips— chips that don’t even come close to compromising performance or reliability when used on our devices out there. So the hope is that this brand-new technology will ultimately bring smaller and less circuitry, while simultaneously bringing high capacity memory units at a lower cost. And hey— who wouldn’t want a more efficient and faster microSD card or other flash memory unit?
No word yet on when this technology will hit the general public yet, but hopefully we’ll see it on our devices sooner than later. Hit the break for the full presser from Sandisk.
