Toshiba has developed the world's first*1 16-die stacked NAND flash memory that uses TSV technology. This new breakthrough provides an effective solution for low latency, high bandwidth and high IOPS/Watt in flash storage applications, including high-end enterprise SSDs. Toshiba's TSV technology achieves an I/O data rate of over 1Gbps, which is higher than any other NAND flash memory, while reducing power consumption by approximately 50 percent with low voltage supply.*2

"TSV technology is another NAND industry first for Toshiba, and we are very excited about the increases in performance and reductions in power consumption it can bring to high density applications, such as SSDs," noted Scott Nelson, senior vice president of TAEC's Memory Business Unit. "Having our technology recognized by a premier outlet such as Tom's Hardware is further validation of our NAND flash leadership role."

Also included among the highlights at Toshiba's booth at FMS was the next generation of its BiCS FLASH™. This innovative technology is the world's first*3 48-layer TLC 3-bit-per-cell 256Gb*4 (32GB) 3D memory.

*2: As of August 6, 2015. Compared with Toshiba's current products. Maximum read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
*3: As of August 3, 2015. Toshiba survey.
*4: Product density is identified based on the density of memory chip(s) within the Product, not the amount of memory capacity available for data storage by the end user. Consumer-usable capacity will be less due to overhead data areas, formatting, bad blocks, and other constraints, and may also vary based on the host device and application. For details, please refer to applicable product specifications.
