2TB SSD drives with a standard 2.5” SATA interface, only 9.5mm thick Foremay has released 2TeraByte SSD drives with a standard 2.5” SATA interface and a thickness of 9.5mm. The drives are offered in the company’s SC199 (for mission-critical applications) and TC166 (for terminal computing) product families. Users can opt for either industrial or commercial grade to suit their specific application. Claimed to be the largest SSD in the world offered in the standard 2.5” SATA form factor, the unit features integrated flash management technologies such as self-monitoring analysis and reporting technology, advanced power management and advanced error correction algorithm. It also provides optional features such as fast erase, military secure erase methods, hardware based encryption and conformal coating. Foremay www.foremay.net Re-programmable 256-bit transistor-based and 1-kbit diode-based non-volatile memory The EU-funded eMbedded Organic Memory Arrays (MOMA) project has announced the largest re-programmable nonvolatile memory arrays yet produced on flexible substrates. Its 256-bit transistor-based and 1-kbit diode-based arrays exhibit state-of-the-art performance in numerous key memory parameters, plus excellent production yields, according to the project team. The MOMA consortium brings together commercial and research partners from across the memory value chain. These partners are chip maker STMicroelectronics, materials supplier Solvay Specialty Polymers, innovation centers imec and Holst Centre plus Catholic University of Louvain and University of Groningen. The project focuses on ferroelectric memories based on soluble ferroelectric polymers and organic and oxide semiconductors. It has successfully developed new grades of memory materials that can be tailored to specific applications and deposition techniques (including spin-coating, inkjet printing and imprinting). The project partners used these materials to develop memory arrays based on both transistors and diodes, optimizing production processes to deliver high yields and excellent memory performance. With its 1-kbit (32x32) array, MOMA has delivered the largest flexible memory arrays to date and achieved production yields close to 100%. Furthermore, it has created the thin-film read-out electronics necessary for use in real applications. In the remaining months of the project, the partners will combine all these building blocks into a 96-bit array with the related read/write circuitry, creating a complete embedded flexible memory suitable for applications such as Electronic Product Code (EPC) tags. The project partners are now looking for interested parties to cooperate on further development and commercialization of the technology.
