The global semiconductor market grew by 5.4% in 2020 the pandemic notwithstanding, pulling in US$442 billion (A$581 billion), a better than expected showing, the technology research firm IDC says.
The top 20 Asia-Pacific technology companies may face a rough time this year due to the volatile global situation and the the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the data and analytics firm GlobalData says.
Seagate has announced its participation in the consortium led by Bain Capital Private Equity to acquire Toshiba Memory Corporation, and commits "up to US $1.25 billion" and "expects to enter into a long-term NAND supply agreement".
NAND isn’t the nickname of your grandmother, but the technology in the storage chips inside your smartphones, tablets and computers, with Western Digital announcing an industry first.
It’s not just Samsung that can boast of 3D NAND, but now the storage powerhouse that is WD and SanDisk, who’ll launch 64-layer 3D NAND SSDs in Q3 2017.
There is a lot of activity in the flash NAND camp (SSD) at present, all predicting the imminent demise of spinning hard disks (HDD) as storage mechanisms.
Toshiba has taken a leaf out of Japan’s high density living by stacking 48 layers of flash memory in a 3D array to produce the world’s first 256-Gigabit (32 Gigabytes), 3 bit per cell TLC, 3D, BiCS, flash memory.
The new buzzword in flash memory is 3D. It stacks layers of storage cells vertically to create up to three times the capacity of planar (2D) NAND.
