MILPITAS, CALIF., June 4, 2007 – Reaching for the “sweet spot” of memory storage for laptop computers, SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) today expanded its line of solid state drive (SSD) products with the introduction of a 64-gigabyte (GB)1 SSD aimed at both enterprise users and early adopter consumers such as gamers. SanDisk 1.8-inch UATA 5000 and 2.5-inch SATA 5000 SSD products, which already are available in a 32GB capacity, are compatible as drop-in replacements for hard disk drives in most mainstream notebook computers.
Sandisk and Sony are now partnering up to push their SxS standard. The new flash based cards will be made for Sony’s upcoming XDCAM EX high-def camcorders. Both companies claim the cards will have a normal transfer rate of 800 megabits per second and will be able to burst to a maximum speed of 2.5Gb/sec. The new SxS standard will also be compatible with the ExpressCard industry standard, which means that it can be easily used in notebook computers with an ExpressCard slot. Sandisk and Sony say the SxS cards will be available later this year. No pricing has been announced.TG Daily
When a company is faced with a lack of demand for their products, they have to bring prices down. And in order to stay in business and out of debt, a company also sometimes has to "cut operating expenses". Unfortunately, this usually means a cut in the workforce, which is exactly how SanDisk is handling the currently dropping prices of memory sticks. 10% of the main workforce, which translates to 250 people, can expect to get the pink slip around March. Salaries of everyone who is working at Sandisk will drop around 10 or 20 percent.Source: Reg Hardware
