MediaTek First to Bring 802.11ac 1T1R "Dual Band Concurrent" Home Networks

MediaTek Inc., a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions, announced today the world's first 1T1R 802.11ac dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi router and dongle solutions. MT7620 + MT7610E and MT7610U provide the mass market with 1T1R 802.11ac router and dongle to enable high quality data transmission, voice and video applications in connected homes. MediaTek will demonstrate its latest wireless technologies, connectivity devices and applications to its customers during Computex Taipei 2012.

MT7620 family integrates a 2T2R 802.11n Wi-Fi radio, a 600 MHz MIPS 24KEc CPU, 5p FE switch, 2xrGMII, USB, PCIe, SD-HC. The PCI Express interface will connect to 2nd Wi-Fi chipset for 11n 2x2 DBC router or to an 11ac chipset for 1x1 DBC 11ac routers. The high performance USB 2.0 allows MT7620 to add 3G/LTE support on a router or can add a UVC cam to enable the best cost/performance IP-Cam. And to support the wireless storage application, MT7620 supports NAND flash interface, SD-HC, USB 2.0 and storage accelerator for NAS, Wi-Fi HDD and Wi-Fi card reader. Audio interface I2S and PCM will enable wireless speaker and VoIP applications. MT7620 also steps up to the leading Hardware Network Address Translation (HNAT) milestone by supporting 2Gbps wired speed with IPv6 forwarding. The cost effective rGMII iNIC interface (2.4G or dual-band concurrent) can be utilized for cable, PON, xDSL and broadband wireless router.

SanDisk Uses 19 nm Process To Manufacture iNAND Extreme

SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced it is using the world’s most advanced semiconductor manufacturing process to produce SanDisk’s highest performing embedded memory products.

iNAND Extreme is now being built on SanDisk’s 19 nanometer (nm)* process technology to enable the large-capacity, high-performance embedded NAND flash memory products that are ideally suited for high-end tablets and smartphones. Products running the Android operating system as well as the upcoming Microsoft Windows RT version of the Windows 8 operating system can benefit from iNAND Extreme capacity, performance and small size.

Toshiba Intros 19 nm NAND Flash-based SSDs

Toshiba announced the first SSDs based on its swanky new 19 nm-class NAND flash memory. These include four models in the 2.5-inch 9.5 mm-thick form-factor (standard), another four models in the 2.5-inch 7 mm-thick form-factor (slim, for Ultrabooks); and three models in the super-compact mSATA form-factor. The 9.5 mm-thick and 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch models differ only with their thickness, and are otherwise identical, since SSDs are essentially just printed circuit boards with NAND flash memory, controllers, caches, and ancillary components soldered onto them.

The 9.5 mm-thick 2.5-inch models carry the model number scheme THNSNFxxxGBSS (xxx = number of GB capacity), while the 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch models use THNSNFxxxGCSS. Both lines are available in 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities. The 128, 256, and 512 GB models offer transfer rates as high as 524 MB/s, while the 64 GB model offers up to 440 MB/s. Toshiba implemented a new controller that features next-generation Deterministic Zeroing TRIM (a feature exclusive with Windows 8 and future *nix kernels), Quadruple Swing-by Code (QSBC), a performance-optimized ECC-equivalent, and a read-only mode. The mSATA models (model number scheme THNSNFxxxGMCS) offer similar performance to their 2.5-inch cousins, but are available in only three capacity options, 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. Toshiba will release its new line of SSDs in August.

Team Group Launches Industrial Memory Modules

The largest professional computer show in Asia, the COMPUTEX TAIPEI, is coming on June 5. Team Group Inc., one of the leading memory manufacturers in the world, is ready to reveal its latest industrial memory modules to professional buyers around the world, including industrial-standard and server-grade memory modules, embedded industrial flash memories, and so on. The emphasis on customization, product performance and after-sale service quality are the live demonstration of how Team Group is determined for the industrial grade/SI market.

Team Group’s industrial memory modules come with Standard series, Green series and Wide temperature series. The modules are produced with chips from original manufacturers and go through multiple meticulous and sophisticated verification analyses and hi-low temperature tests. The Wide temperature series is capable of working at the temperature ranging from -40℃ to 95℃, and provides stable operation performance even in conditions as punishing as at a desert or in arctic environment. The Green series works only with minimal voltage as low as 1.35V. You cannot be any greener than that. The newly developed high frequency and large volume memory modules complete the full product series for various demands in medial equipment, surveillance systems and industrial computers.

OCZ Launches Agility 4 SSD Series

RunCore Launches InVincible SSD with Physical Self-Destruction

RunCore, leading supplier of high-performance solid-state drives, announces the global launch of its InVincible Solid State Disc drive. This SATA SSD solution provides for highest data security through a special button device that allows for total physical destruction with a single click.

The RunCore InVincible SSDs allow you to protect sensitive data from third party access in two ways with a single click. One method is the intelligent elimination of all your data through overwriting the entire disk with meaningless code. This overwrite-deletion method ensures that there is no way to potentially recover previous data stored to the device, effectively setting you SSD back to factory default.

Green House Unveils New Line of Industrial SDHC Cards
