Seagate working on hybrid SSDs

Posted on Saturday, November 08 2008 @ 12:35:16 CET by

Seagate is investing up to $100 million into a new type of "hybrid" solid state disk that combines the advantages of SLC and MLC flash memory technology:
According to company CEO Bill Watkins, Seagate is trying to resolve certain issues with the current technology, including SSDs' higher cost of production relative to hard disk drives and their limited read/write cycles. The company's solution would be to create a new technology that combines single-layer cell (SLC) and multi-layer cell (MLC) tech, marrying the former's superior reliability with the latter's low manufacturing cost.

Watkins did not divulge any more information apart from the fact it will work on such hybrid technology, though did reveal it will need to develop new controller technology for the devices.
