NAND Flash Prices Expected to Increase in Q4 Due to Severe Supply Shortages

According to a recent report from market intelligence firm TrendForce, supply shortages and surging demand from the 3Q2016 will continue into 4Q2016 increasing prices of NAND Flash. This will cause price increases of eMMC, eMCP and SSDs extending through the 4th quarter.

The main driver of increasing prices is due to smartphone demand. Smartphone demand has started to boom in the 2H2016 with sales of the iPhone 7 on the upswing causing major constrains on supply. Apple doubled capacities on each of the iPhone 7 models representing a substantial increase in NAND Flash consumption. Similarly, other brands such as Huawei, OPPO and Vivo are ramping up production and [...]

DRAM, NAND Flash Prices Expected to Increase in 4Q2016

According to a new report from DRAMeXchange, DRAM and NAND Flash prices are expected to increase in 4Q2016 and beyond due to growing demand and a tightening supply.

Preliminary Injunction Halts Sale of SanDisk ULLtraDIMM SSDs, IBM eXFlash Modules

A federal court in Northern California recently granted a preliminary injunction stopping the sale of SSD controllers sold by Canadian chipmaker, Diablo Technologies. The Diablo Technologies’ SSD controllers in question are most notably used in SanDisk’s ULLtraDIMM SSDs and IBM’s eXFlash modules. These SSDs exploit the much faster DRAM interface to achieve higher performance and lower latency than traditional non-volatile storage interfaces such as SATA, SAS, or PCIe.

The injunction was filed against Diablo Technologies by Netlist, a Southern California company who produces non-volatile memory modules similar to SanDisk’s ULLtraDIMM SSDs. [...]

HGST Announces World’s First 10TB HDD, Takes Capacity Crown Once Again

Several weeks ago, Seagate announced that had begun shipping the world’s first 8TB HDDs, taking the high capacity crown from HGST’s 6TB Ultrastar He6 helium filled HDDs unveiled in late 2013. Although it was a valiant effort made by Seagate, it seems like HGST had another trick up their sleeve.

Earlier this week, HGST announced the world’s first 10TB HDD, effectively taking back the capacity crown from Seagate for the time being.

In order to reach the magical 10TB capacity, HGST is employing two key technologies – HelioSeal and SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording). HelioSeal is one of HGST’s next generation HDD manufacturing [...]
