Micron is announcing a brand new, enterprise-class solid state drive today, the RealSSD P400m. We have a looked at a number of Micron-built solid state drives in the past, including the ultra high-end RealSSD P320h PCI Express-based beast and the consumer-targeted RealSSD C300, but what makes the P400m somewhat different is that it was...

Micron on Thursday introduced its new M500 solid state drive (SSD) with terabyte-class capacity, an ultra-slim design, and increased response times compared to previous SSD products, all at an "affordable price point." The M500 SSD will be sold to consumers, businesses, and system builders under the Crucial brand, and... Read more...
Most of the PCIe SSD cards on the market today, with the exception of products from Fusion-io, still rely on SATA or SAS-based NAND controllers to interface on the backend of the device to the NAND array. PCIe cards from OCZ, Intel, LSI and others use controllers from LSI SandForce or the like.  Fusion-io was the first company to introduce... Read more...
We've often spoken about the future of SSD technology eventually evolving away from "bridged" interfaces like SATA and SAS, to direct-attached, native interfaces like PCI Express.  It just makes sense.  With the ultra-fast random access times and high IO bandwidth of solid state storage, it's not the storage media itself that's...

Idaho's finest memory maker has just announced something that could have huge implications in the mobile realm. Micron has just introduced phase change memory for mobile devices. It's an industry first, touting 45nm PCM for mobile products that feature 1-gigabit PCM plus 512-megabit LPDDR2 in a multichip package... Read more...
Micron Technology, founded in 1978 in Boise, Idaho and one of the state's largest employers, announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire struggling Elpida Memory in a deal worth $2.5 billion. Under terms of the agreement, Micron will acquire a 100 percent stake in Elpida in exchange for a lump sum cash... Read more...
DDR3 RAM is so ubiquitous, effective, and inexpensive that it’s sometimes easy to forget that there’s a new generation of memory coming. Actually, it’s coming quite soon; Micron announced that it has a polished DDR4 memory module that it’s been sampling, and volume production may begin before... Read more...
Micron announced the C400 mSATA drive, which is designed to work as a smart cache in ultrathin notebooks. The caseless C400 is tiny--just 3x5cm--and is designed to be low power to preserve notebook battery life. The drive uses 25nm MLC NAND flash comes in capacities ranging from 32GB to 256GB, with a speedy SATA 6Gbps interface. These drives... Read more...
Intel's not only making mobile news this week at Mobile World Congress; it's also making memory news. The company, along with Micron Technology, announced today that the companies have entered into agreements to expand their NAND Flash memory joint venture relationship. The agreements, which are designed to improve the flexibility and efficiency... Read more...
It doesn't take a detective to figure out that today's mobile devices are getting smaller, slimmer, and more powerful, which means less room for heat dissipation and potentially lower battery life. To help with both of those side effects, Micron today introduced a new product category of low-power DDR3 solutions... Read more...
Following the tragic news that Micron's CEO since 1994 perished late last week in a plane crash, the company has now promoted D. Mark Durcan as Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Durcan will also serve as a Director on Micron's Board of Directors. Mark has been the company's CTO in the past, making it a natural step-up. It's surely a bittersweet... Read more...
Micron has grown to become one of the world's leading providers of advanced semiconductor solutions, and a lot of the company's success is due to the leadership of Steve Appleton. On Friday, the company's CEO perished in a plane crash at the age of 51. Mark Durcan, Micron President and Chief Operating Officer, said the following: "Steve was... Read more...
