Whether you’re using a USB flash drive or secure digital cards, you’re using flash memory. Flash memory, or NAND flash, has become a major part of every industry as we incorporate technology into anything and everything. One of the best attributes of NAND is that it does not require being powered on to actively store the memory; it continues to hold memory until manual deletion. This is an important feature because it makes NAND more cost-efficient than DRAM memory, which must be powered on to hold data.

Flash memory is used as a storage device just like a hard drive or Ram. What sets it apart is its size and portability. The ease transferring data from one computer to another using a flash drive is a breeze due to its ease of use. The flash drive can be plugged into a USB port in a laptop or computer, when this is accomplished, you can easily move files from your computer to the flash drive. This makes it possible to transport information through a storage device that’s small, convenient, and compatible with all computers and laptops.

Flash memory is used broadly every day in all types of products memory products including mobile phones, cameras, computers and more! Flash is created to last for an extended amount of time especially for its diverse application methods there is a never-ending demand for it. However, there has been an increase in unauthorized resellers who are disposing of used chips in the flash and reselling the flash as a new product.  This can negatively impact the buyer because of the unethical approach to the dispensing method as well as the quality that is being compensated. To avoid situations of buying a falsely advertised flash, the engineers at the University of Alabama began to research a way to identify the possible usage of the flash memory.

The carbon nanotube memory’s ship has finally came. Nantero made the non volatile random access memory or NRAM which has way passed its sell date. It seems as this this type of technology was not competitive as it is coming almost close to a decade later than other company’s launch dates. Because this NRAM use nanotube groups that are deposited randomly within a space on a substrate as opposed to being individually place in very specific places within a space, MRAN is able to easily mass produce these products.

Many people are always seeking for the best options when it comes to SD cards.  There are many types and many different ones that are currently being offered. There are many different types and many different productions of them. Many are good and many are not as good. Therefore, StartTech has released a new idea.

The computing industry is constantly on the hunt for higher speed for both data storage and data transfer. Taking advantage of the technology development that is persistently on the rise, the industry was able to overcome an enormous obstacle such as not being dependent on the conventional form of energy, and instead it started simply operating on a source of light.

SanDisk unveiled their latest microSD card this past weekend, one that sees a vast increase in storage capacity.The new card can hold up to a record 200 gigabytes of storage – an increase of over fifty percent from their last model. It was just about this time last year when SanDisk came out with a 128 GB card, also a record at the time. This sort of storage capability comes from the demand of the way most people use their phones nowadays. Instagram, Twitter, and other social media outlets have changed the way pictures and videos are shared, and has caused the necessary increase in how much storage is needed. “Mobile devices are completely changing the game. Seven out of ten images captured by consumers are now from smartphones and tablets. Consumers view mobile-first devices as their primary means for image capture and sharing, and by 2019, smartphones and tablets will account for nine out of ten images captured,” said Christopher Chute, Vice President of Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice at IDC.
