A team of Japanese researchers have developed a power supply technology that promises to boost the write speed of solid state disks by 60 percent to 4.2Gbps:
A university research group and Toshiba Corp jointly developed a power supply technology that can enhance the write speed of SSDs (solid state drives) by 60% to 4.2Gbps compared with existing SSDs.
The research group is led by Ken Takeuchi, associate professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, Graduate School of Engineering of the University of Tokyo.
The new technology dynamically and optimally controls power supply in accordance with the number of NAND flash memories operating in parallel. It is target at the "3D SSD," which three-dimensionally stacks the components of, for example, a NAND flash memory.
