SanDisk Corp. debuts the iNAND Extreme embedded flash drive (EFD) featuring up to 50MB/s sequential write and up to 80MB/s sequential read speeds aimed at tablets running advanced operating systems and data-intensive applications.

High-performance embedded flash storage can improve a tablet's multimedia synchronisation speeds, file-transfer rates and operating system responsiveness. Fast sequential performance is essential when capturing HD and 3D video content or when transferring large files via the high-speed USB 3.0 interface. The iNAND Extreme EFD can allow OEMs working on tablet designs, to improve the key performance criteria that produce an enjoyable user experience.

Available in a compact 12x16mm JEDEC package with heights as low as 1mm, the iNAND Extreme EFD enables slim and highly portable mobile and tablet designs. By conserving internal space, the drive allows more room for other components such as larger batteries—particularly important in high-end tablets with demanding energy needs or larger screens.

The iNAND Extreme EFD comes in 16-64GB capacities and is scheduled for sampling in Q3 2011. The drive expands SanDisk's segmented embedded storage line-up, which includes iNAND and iNAND Ultra drives for handsets and tablets.

SanDisk iNAND and iNAND Ultra EFDs
The iNAND EFD is available in storage capacities ranging from 2-64GB for integration into handsets and other designs that require an e.MMC interface. The drive features up to 30MB/s read and up to 13MB/s write speeds and can serve as a reliable boot device and mass storage solution. The iNAND Ultra EFD offers up to 40MB/s read and 20MB/s write speeds that increase the system responsiveness of feature-rich smartphones that need fast, high-capacity storage in a small form factor.

All iNAND EFDs utilise caching technology that increases system responsiveness for faster application loading, web-browsing and multi-tasking.
