SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) recently announced the 16-gigabyte (GB) iNAND(tm) embedded flash drive (EFD). The new iNAND packs double the storage capacity into a standard JEDEC 12x16mm package thanks to recent advances in multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash technology. iNAND 16GB is expected to be available for sampling to mobile handset vendors this quarter, with iNAND 32GB slated for introduction in H2 2008.
iNAND is designed for the latest mobile handsets, which feature a growing number of storage-intensive features including music players, digital cameras, and video recording, playback and GPS capabilities. By providing abundant storage for these features, in addition to high performance and reliability, iNAND helps to enable new and exciting mobile experiences for mobile handset users.
iNAND devices adhere to JEDEC package and ball-out requirements, common throughout the industry, providing virtually “plug and play” integration and allowing them to be designed into mobile handsets quickly. In addition, iNAND devices utilize the industry-leading and field-proven SD(tm) interface.
