SanDisk Announces 19-Nanometer Manufacturing Technology—World’s Smallest, Most Advanced Process Node * Industry-leading 19nm 64-gigabit X2 memory chip; smallest NAND flash memory chip in the world * Volume production scheduled for the second half of 2011 MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), the global leader in flash memory cards, today announced a 64-gigabit (Gb), 2-bits-per-cell (X2) based monolithic chip made on 19-nanometer (nm) technology, the most advanced memory process technology node in the world. This latest technology enables SanDisk to produce embedded and removable storage devices with the high capacities and small form factors used in mobile phones, tablet computers and other devices. “We are excited to introduce the world’s smallest and lowest-cost NAND flash chips based on industry-leading 19nm process technology in our ongoing collaboration with our manufacturing partner Toshiba” SanDisk will sample its 19nm 64Gb X2 device this quarter and expects to begin high-volume production in the second half of 2011. At that time, SanDisk will also add 3-bits-per-cell (X3) products fabricated with the 19nm process technology to its product lineup. “We are excited to introduce the world’s smallest and lowest-cost NAND flash chips based on industry-leading 19nm process technology in our ongoing collaboration with our manufacturing partner Toshiba,” said Yoram Cedar, executive vice president and chief technology officer, SanDisk. “Products based on this technology are designed to enable new applications, form factors and consumer experience that will continue to drive the flash industry to new heights.” The 19nm memory die uses the most sophisticated flash memory technology node to date, including advanced process innovations and cell-design solutions. SanDisk’s All-Bit-Line (ABL) architecture with proprietary programming algorithms and multi-level data storage management schemes help yield multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory chips that do not sacrifice performance or reliability.
Nice, I wonder how long it is before they reach Picometer technology.
Well considering that we went from 1GB internal storage to 8GB internal storage (or more) on Andriod phones in a year, I think a year from now we will be looking at 32~64GB of internal storage. Things like this make that happen.
Imagine when you'll have a combined 64~96GB of storage on your phone. I could fit most of my music on there, a couple feature length movies, and more programs then I know what to do with.

Plus the new Kal-El quad core processors??? That is going to be a powerful little device! Manufacturers are in the power and storage mode, I'm looking forward to the energy saving mode that comes after the "who is the fastest" contest. I want fast and energy efficient. 64gigs on a phone is huge! My 8gig card isn't even full, I'm not sure what I would do with 64.
Now you're just mashing it!
probably won't b too long to have a 1 TB on a key-chain.

Rofl I wonder how small they can actually go and be operational. Of course I am sure we will see in the near future. I agree with Drake I want fast and energy efficient especially in a device targeted at the market these would be used for.
