[Geek] TDK puts an SSD on a 17mm chip

SSDs typically consist of a number of NAND flash chips on a board along with a controller chip and SATA connector for use in a 2.5-inch bay. That may be sufficient for consumers and most business sectors, but there’s still a need for fast and reliable storage in embedded devices and where physical space is at a premium.

TDK has developed a new SSD to fill that need called the eSSD. It manages to fit the NAND flash, controller chip, and 3Gbps SATA interface on to a single piece of silicon that measures just 17 x 17mm.

By managing to combine the different components on to a single chip, TDK not only saves on space, but also cuts manufacturing costs considerably. The eSSD is limited to just 4GB of storage, but that should be ample for the types of devices it will be used with. Read and write speeds are also quite limited at 55MBps and 30MBps respectively, and rewrites are limited to 50,000.

This is really good for embedded OS devices..

HP, WEB OS take note.

I want to see it in: printers, routers, my cordless mouse, linux boxes, Wifi access points, switches, hand guns, riffle scopes with built in computer assisted aiming, airplanes, disposable tablet pc's, toilet paper dispenser, my fridge, my dogs collar, my cats collar, gps units, eye glasses

you get the idea..

Just thought of this: build computer into my mouse..
