CES 2018: Toshiba Memory introduces BiCS FLASH 3D technology; unveils NVMe SSD Series

Toshiba Memory America (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory, will be highlighting the use of its BiCS FLASH 3D memory in several applications – including its new lineup of NVMe SSDs, the RC100 Series.

Making its debut at CES, TMA’s RC100 M.2 NVMe SSD Series has been built from the ground up to deliver faster-than-SATA performance in a cost-effective and power-optimized solution for today’s DIY builders and PC gamers. A small 22x42mm form factor, low power consumption, excellent performance and an affordable price all give the RC100 a true competitive edge.

Also at CES, the TMA Storage Group will demonstrate its small, sleek, ruggedized external SSD. The new XS700 incorporates Toshiba’s BiCS FLASH technology and was designed with portability and affordability in mind.

At CES, TMA is collaborating with its customers and technology partners to take on the future – together. Toshiba launched its 3D flash memory technology, which addresses the processing, storage and management of the growing volume of data generated worldwide.

Recent announcements see the company continuing to lead the industry forward, including the introduction of a 96-layer 512Gb die; the debut of initial flash memory device with quadruple-level cell (QLC) technology; and the addition of Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology.

Already enabling enterprise, data center, PC and mobile applications, TMA’s BiCS FLASH has paved the way for the applications of tomorrow. In everything from artificial intelligence and virtual reality to a growing number of automotive applications (such as infotainment), high performance computing and the ever-expanding “internet of things,” storage density needs will climb higher and higher – and BiCS FLASH was designed with this in mind.

CES – the biggest stage for consumer technology breakthroughs – is the ideal forum for the inventor of NAND flash to introduce its latest innovations. Harnessing the power of its 64-layer BiCS FLASH 3D memory, TMA’s latest SSD innovation sits right in the sweet spot between SATA SSDs and higher-end NVMe SSDs.

The new RC100 Series was designed to address the entire spectrum of computing – and make the benefits of NVMe accessible to the mainstream market.
