Western Digital is now manufacturing 3D-stacked NAND flash chips that have 64 layers, 16 stories higher than its previous 48-layer technology -- meaning its 33% more dense.
Scientists at Delft University in the Netherlands have developed an atomic-scale “hard drive” that can store the entire U.S. Library of Congress on a 0.1mm wide cube.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Sunday his firm will send over-the-air upgrades to its vehicles with Autopilot capability, after a crash involving the technology resulted in the death of a driver.
In the latest of several Tesla vehicle accidents, the owner of a Tesla Model X SUV claims the vehicle suddenly accelerated on its own and crashed into the side of a building.
HP today began taking orders for its new Jet Fusion 3D printer. About the size of two washing machines, the printers will start at $130,000 for the 3200 series and in the low $200,000 range for the 4200 series.
Data storage manufacturers have repeatedly come up against walls in their quest for ever larger drives and faster performance. And each time, new technology allows them to scale those walls and keep going. They're about to do it again.
Seagate will show off at an industry event today a 10GBps SSD, 4GBps faster than any previous drive.
Consumer-grade SSDs saw a 12 percent price decline over just the past quarter. Based on DRAMeXchange’s analysis, the price difference between 128GB SSD and 500GB HDDs will shrink to less than $3 in this year.
Kingston has purchased Imation's IronKey subsidiary, a maker of encrypted USB drives.
The production of 3D or stacked NAND flash in recent years has led to non-volatile memory exceeding the areal density of HDDs. This means that flash memory products with higher capacity can be built using the same surface area.
The car-maker will invest additional $4.5 billion in electric vehicles by 2020, when, it says, some 40% of its vehicles will have EV models.
SanDisk and Toshiba today announced a new fabrication plant: a 48-layer 3D NAND flash chip that doubles the capacity of previous chips.
