Toshiba Aims at Tripling Flash Memory Speed

Toshiba is introducing a new DDR toggle mode flash, which is said to triple speeds of the already fast solid state drives. Double data rate, otggle mode NAND flash memory from Toshiba will give users performance increases as the 32 nanometer multi-level cell (MLC) and single level cell (SLC) chips have a faster interface and can handle faster data transfer than traditional SLC chips and the new toggle mode can handle 133 million transfers per seconds, or triple the 40 million transfers that traditional SLC has been capable of in the past.

The new chips are more power efficient. Pricing and availability were not announced by Toshiba, but 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB capacities should become available. Toshiba hopes to target these new flash modules at media players, smartphones, and tablets.
