Toshiba Announces UFS Devices Leveraging 64-Layer BiCS Flash

Recommended Posts

Toshiba will be releasing four capacities: 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. All of the devices will integrate flash memory and a controller in a single, JEDEC-standard 11.5x13mm package. According to the company, the controller performs error correction, wear leveling, logical-to-physical address translation, and bad-block management – allowing users to simplify system development.

There have been plenty of SSD announcements. Few draw comments. What would really draw excitement is price drops. If storage began dropping in price again, then bigger models would become economic to announce as well. As it is, I've found new model announcements a yawn. They're marginally better than existing models, at the same prices. No motivation to upgrade.

Any word on the global flash shortage? Any sign of imminent easing, and a resumption of the price-drop curve? They must have been building new factories for the past couple years, and those must come online eventually.
