Solid State Drive (SSD) has gradually become the focus for individuals who desire to enhance their storage equipment. Especially since 2016, more and more SSD vendors have applied the newly invented “3D NAND Flash” and “NVMe Communications Protocol” to their latest products. With the larger capacity, faster speed, and friendlier price, SSD will comprehensively replace Hard Disk Drive (HDD) in the near future.
The traditional spinning hard drive is the basic nonvolatile storage on a computer. That is, information on it doesn't "go away" when you turn off the system, as is true of data stored in computing memory. A hard drives is essentially a metal platter with a magnetic coating that stores your data, whether weather reports from the last century, a high-definition copy of the Star Wars trilogy, or your digital music collection. A read/write head on an arm accesses the data while the platters are spi
SD memory cards are a compact storage medium for personal data and multimedia files (audio, images, and video). SD cards feature large storage capacity and fast data transmission speeds in a small form factor for use in a wide range of products. Driven by the trend for slimmer and lighter consumer electronics, the market for SD cards is growing fast. Typical applications include digital cameras, mobile phones, multimedia players, printers, computer systems, card readers, home entertainment equip
Mobile devices are essential for our daily life, but for most of us, the internal memory storage on these devices is inadequate. Unfortunately, this problem is only getting worse, as activities like photo taking, video recording, and downloading, demand increasingly more memory. As a result, many users expand available memory on their mobile devices by inserting SD cards. According to Strategy Analytics, 75% of smart phones include a microSD slot, which points to the fact that SD cards are now a
According to iSuppli, the price of NAND Flash would continue to drop in 2014. The price of Solid State Drive (SSD) that uses semi conductor such as NAND Flash as data storage device would gradually become friendlier which would improve consumer’s purchase intention and accelerate the speed of penetration rate. Ultrathin design of SSD is not only used on consumer products, but also massively adopted on enterprise level products. At the same time, there are some products between consumer and enter
Since the need of thin and light laptops such as Ultrabooks, Ultrathin Notebooks and portable devices has been growing, Solid State Drive (SSD) has become the mainstream storage media for tablets, and also the standard storage alternative for high-level notebooks, as a replacement for Hard Disk Drive. The great amount of implementation hence increases SSD’s annual growth rate as a whole. With the prevailing trend of thin and light design and the decent of SSD’s unit price, consumers have shown h

No one doubts that SD Card is one of the most popular memory cards in the world. SD Card standard started in 2000, and has expanded its applications into digital still camera, mobile phone and PC peripherals. According to iSuppli 2011 market trend forecast, SD card, as a removable media to carry files, is not only for information, but also audio and videos with its big capacity and low prices.
