Micron: 50 percent of our SSDs to be TLC-based in 2016

During the company's quarterly earnings call, Micron president Mark Adams revealed that the firm will be launching its first TLC NAND based solid state disk in the second half of this year. The memory maker has apparently solved its challenges with TLC and is moving full steam ahead with the adoption of the triple-bit-per-cell NAND, vowing to put it in 50 percent of its SSDs by the end of fiscal 2016 (which is late August, 2016 in the normal calendar year).
Apparently, Micron, which typically uses controllers from Marvell with its own custom firmware, has managed to achieve desired levels of reliability and performance with its TLC-based SSDs. Since the company this week reported results for the third quarter of its fiscal 2015, expect Micron to unveil its first SSD with triple-level-cell memory in the coming months.

Analysts from DRAMeXchange believe that 45 per cent of NAND flash memory produced by the end of the year will be TLC thanks to the fact that the type will be used in mobile, consumer and SSD applications.
TLC enables the creation of cheaper flash storage but performance/endurance issues with TLC-based SSDs from Samsung have sparked controversy about the reliability of these disks.
