Toshiba and Toshiba America Electronic Components (TAEC) have also launched small-sized flash modules for netbook computers, ultra-mobile PCs and other mobile and peripheral applications.

Toshiba’s new high density solid state drives (SSD) brings 256Gb of capacity to a 2.5-inch drive form factor with an advanced multi-level cell (MLC) controller that achieves higher read-write speeds, parallel data transfers and wear leveling to optimize performance, reliability and endurance. Alongside this, Toshiba provides support for the growing market for small, netbook computers and other personal equipment with the launch of small SSD flash modules supporting 8Gb, 16Gb and 32 Gb densities.

According to Toshiba, the new 256Gb SSD mounts NAND flash memory on a 70.6mm (L) x 53.6mm (W) x 3.0mm (H) platform. The drive offers performance characteristics essential for mainstream notebook PCs: high density data storage and support for fast data transfer rates, with a maximum read speed of 120Mb per second and maximum write speed of 70Mbps, via a Sata 3.0Gb per second (Gbps) interface.

Flash modules are fabricated on a 50mm x 30mm platform, and offer maximum read and write speeds of 80Mb and 50Mb per second, respectively. Flash modules are also compatible with the Sata interface and will support continued development of the growing market for netbook PCs , mobile and peripheral applications by offering developers a wider range of SSD for integration in differentiated products.
