Toshiba Introduces New Solid-State Drives LineTo Market, Set For Release In August

by HSG on Jun 13, 2012 in News

Toshiba has released a new line of solid-state drives (SSD) using 19 nanometers, which is currently the industry’s smallest lithography process.

 

The lineup will include mini-SATA and 2.5-inch form factors along with drives in 7mm and 9.5mm heights. All drives will use the most current serial ATA 6Gbps interface protocol.

 

According to the company, the new THNSNF SSD line will work at two times the speed of the HG3 series SSDs. The THNSNF line, which has multi-level cell NAND flash, comes with Quadruple Swing By Code, which is Toshiba’s highly effective mistake correction code technology for information protection.

 

This SSD lineup includes the following things:

 

- 440MB/sec random write rates

- 461MB/sec sequential

- 524MB/sec sequential read rates

 

With 4KB blocks, they can maintain up to 35,000 random write IOPS and 50,000 random I/Os per second.

 

August is the month for the drives to be released to the general public.

 

The 2.5-inch SSD line is geared toward the following devices:

 

- Thin, light notebooks

- High-end notebooks

- Embedded systems for industrial and consumer PCs

- Consumer and industrial PCs’ external storage devices

- All-in-one desktops

 

You’ll be able to get a high 512-gigabyte hard drive to a low 64-gigabyte hard drive.

 

These new SSDs give users upgrade to previous models and enable them to be Windows 8 optimized including the SATA revision 3.1 compliance, which will have a power utilization rating of 0.1 watts or less.

 

Toshiba will also have the Deterministic Zeroing TRIM on the SSDs. This will recognize blocks of capacity that are marked for deletion and reuse them. This will be exclusive for the Windows 8 and upcoming Linux versions.

The best way to learn is by doing.

The coaching program integrates our course instruction with hands on software development practices. By employing XP (Extreme Programming) techniques, we teach students as follows:

Configure and integrate the needed development tools

MOntitor each students progress and offer feedback, perspective and alternatives when needed.

Establish an Action plan to yield a set of deliverables in order to guarantee productive learning.

Establish an Commit to a deliverable time line.

Hold each student accountable to a standard that is comparable to that of an engineer/project manager with at least one year's experience in the field.

These coaching cycles typically last 2-4 weeks in duration.

Provide Expertise
Services for your business growth.
With the introduction of smart devices, e-marketplaces, electronic forms, SEO practices, big data, virtual office environments, media streaming and so much more, there is hardly a business whose livelihood is not, in some way, dependent upon the inclusion of such software functionality into its online presence, work environment and product offerings. Such inclusion often presents a complex array of challenges that are far beyond the expertise of the business as it demands an understanding of technological options, modular decomposition, backend systems integration and web services. Most importantly, the business requires IT talent and expertise; this is where the Hartmann Software Group shines. To that end, here is an overview of some of the services that we offer:
