Sandisk Offering Postage Stamp Sized 64GB SSD

Sandisk is offering a new class of solid state drives called Integrated Solid State Drives or iSSD. The drive is smaller than a postage stamp and comes in capacities ranging from 4GB up to 64GB.


iSSDs are intended to be integrated into mobile devices that require storage, like mobile phones or flash-based media players. The drive will offer 160MB/sec sequential read rates, meaning that it can transfer up to 160MB of data that is stored on the drive in order. It also offers 100MB/sec sequential write speeds. It measures 16mm x 20mm x 1.85mm and weighs less than a gram. It has a SATA interface to make it compatible with all popular operating systems. The drives will be installed by soldering them to the main board of the device they are integrated into. No pricing was given.
