SanDisk Corp., a leading supplier of NAND flash-based products, said that it has begun sampling iNAND Extreme embedded flash drives (EFD) that have been optimized to provide advanced digital storage in tablets powered by Intel Atom Z3000 system-on-a-chips (SoCs). The new enhancements to the iNAND Extreme make it faster, more responsive and highly compatible with the SoC code-named Bay Trail.

SanDisk iNAND Extreme embedded flash drives are available in capacities from 8GB to 128GB and rely on NAND flash memory produced using 19nm. The drives feature eMMC 5.0/HS400 interface and offer sequential write/read speeds up to 45/150MB/s, and up to 800 4KB random IOPS. Based on SanDisk’s intelligent flash memory architecture, iNAND Extreme significantly improves multimedia synchronization speeds and operating-system responsiveness in mobile devices.

SanDisk is currently sampling the iNAND Extreme to leading mobile device manufacturers for use in future, Google Android and Microsoft Windows 8 tablets featuring high-performance and energy efficient Intel Atom Z3000 processors.

“We are pleased to offer the tremendous storage performance of SanDisk’s iNAND Extreme for use in tablets incorporating Intel’s impressive new Intel Atom platform. We have clearly just scratched the surface of the potential for tablets to transform the user experience, and our iNAND Extreme enables developers to introduce the next wave of highly responsive tablets that offer richer entertainment, awe-inspiring graphics, and more productive business applications,” said Drew Henry, senior vice president and general manager of mobile and connected solutions at SanDisk.

SanDisk provides embedded flash memory solutions to all major tablet and handset providers. The SanDisk iNAND product family offers an embedded storage solution for every performance segment and capacity point in the mobile market, and includes iNAND, iNAND Ultra and iNAND Extreme EFD products. SanDisk's iNAND solutions, available in EFDs and MCP (multi-chip package) forms, provide tablets, smartphones, e-book readers, personal media players and personal navigation devices with faster system responsiveness, improved multitasking and browsing performance, longer battery life and an enhanced user experience. SanDisk's iNAND products come in a variety of storage capacities, ranging from 4GB to 128GB.

“Robust consumer demand for more convenient and better mobile computing options has driven rapid growth in the tablet market, with branded tablet shipments up nearly 55% worldwide in 2013 compared to last year. Notable advancements at the semiconductor level pave the way for a new generation of tablets that offer longer battery life, more responsive digital entertainment, and computing experience that is more closely aligned with what was once only possible on a PC,” said Peter King, director of tablet and touchscreen strategies at Strategy Analytics.
