SanDisk has just announced the latest 19-Nanometer Manufacturing Technology that is also touted to be the smallest, most advanced process node at press time. To put it in greater detail, SanDisk is behind the 64-gigabit (Gb), 2-bits-per-cell (X2) based monolithic chip that is manufactured based on a 19-nanometer (nm) process – making it the most advanced memory process technology node in the world. Just how does that translate into something that is able to help improve life quality around the world? We’re looking at the ability to produce embedded and removable storage devices that will boast of high capacities despite coming in smaller form factors such as smartphones, tablets and and other devices.

SanDisk will begin to sample its 19nm 64Gb X2 device later this quarter, where it is tipped that they will kick start high-volume production in the second half of the year. Not only that, SanDisk will also throw in 3-bits-per-cell (X3) products that are fabricated with the 19nm process technology to its product lineup from then on, so you can expect some interesting press announcements from the flash memory manufacturer down the road as well.

The 19nm memory die is said to utilize the most sophisticated flash memory technology node available, where it comprises of advanced process innovations and cell-design solutions which will not sacrifice performance or reliability. [Press Release]
