Solid state drive and hard disk drive manufacturer Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) has expanded its lineup of managed NAND devices with the addition of new Embedded Multimedia Card (e-MMC) and Universal Flash Storage (UFS) embedded memory solutions. Featuring enhanced integrated controller technologies, the new offerings deliver significant read and write speed improvements to demanding applications.

In contrast to raw NAND flash memory solutions, states Toshiba, the new 'Supreme+' e-MMC (JEDEC ver. 5.1) and UFS (JEDEC ver. 2.1) devices integrate NAND flash memory and a controller chip in a single package. This saves space and relieves host processors of the burden of key memory management functions including bad block management, error correction, wear leveling, and garbage collection.

Based on the company’s 15nm process technology, the new e-MMC devices are available in capacities from 16GB to 128GB with sequential read and write speeds of 320MB/sec and 180MB/sec.

The new UFS devices are also based on Toshiba's 15nm MLC NAND flash technology and are available in capacities from 32GB to 128GB with sequential read and write speeds of 850MB/sec and 180MB/sec.
