  • Micron releases smallest 128Gbit flash chip

    Micron has introduced what it said is the industry's smallest 128Gbit NAND-flash chip using Micron's 20 nanometer process technology, which is targeted at low-cost removable storage devices.

  • DARPA, SRC pony up $194 million to fund chip research

    The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and a consortium of top semiconductor companies are handing out US$194 million to universities for research that addresses the physical limitations of semiconductors and chips.

  • Rambus considers antitrust appeal as stock falls

    Rambus is considering whether to appeal the Wednesday jury verdict that <a href="http://www.cio.com/article/694345/Jury_Rules_Against_Rambus_in_Antitrust_Case">scuttled its antitrust suit</a> against Hynix Semiconductor and Micron Technologies, which could have required the defendants to pay nearly US$12 billion in damages.

  • Jury rules against Rambus in antitrust case

    A San Francisco jury has rejected a US$4 billion antitrust claim by Rambus against rival RAM makers Hynix Semiconductor and Micron Technology, a California court announced Wednesday.

  • New Low-Power Memory Could Challenge DDR3

    Samsung Electronics and Micron Technology have founded a consortium to push a type of low-power memory called Hybrid Memory Cube. The vendors hope HMC will be seen as a viable alternative to DDR3 memory in high-performance computers and networks within a few years.

  • Samsung, Micron back new memory type to challenge DDR3

    Samsung Electronics and Micron Technology on Thursday announced the creation of a consortium around a new low-power memory called Hybrid Memory Cube, which could challenge DDR3 memory in high-performance computers in a few years.

  • Move over flash: Here comes phase-change memory

    University of California, San Diego researchers next week plan to demonstrate a solid state storage device that uses phase-change memory to blow away traditional hard drives and even newer flash drives.

  • Crucial M4 SSD

    Solid-state drives have had their share of ups and downs in the past few years. Although SSDs are definitely faster than their mechanical counterparts, they've yet to live up to the performance their specifications suggest. What's more, they can be at least eight to 10 times as expensive as their mechanical equivalents -- putting them out of range for the lower-end consumer market.

  • Look out for the 256GB thumb drive and the 128GB tablet

    How much money would you be willing to pay for a 128GB thumb drive or a 512GB solid-state hard disk? What about paying half the amount that you would have to spend today? Intel and Micron Technology say the scenario should become a reality next year.

  • Intel and Micron shrink NAND flash

    Intel and Micron Technology on Thursday said they had shrunk NAND flash memory in size, which could help add more storage and features to smartphones or tablets.

  • SSD maker OCZ to buy controller company Indilinx

    Solid-state drive (SSD) maker OCZ Technology Group announced this week it has signed an agreement to acquire privately-held Indilinx, a maker of popular NAND flash controllers, for $32 million.

  • Micron releases half-terabyte laptop SSDs

    Micron Technology today announced its highest capacity laptop solid-state drives (SSDs) based on its smallest circuitry technology; the largest SSD doubles the amount of data that can be stored compared to its predecessor.
