In the CES 2011, SanDisk today announced the first product in a new category of embedded solid state drives (SSD), that are the world’s smallest solid state drives so far. 


The SSD is smaller than a postage stamp and offer higher capacities and performance than existing storage solutions. The SanDisk® integrated SSD (iSSD), the first high-capacity product within this new category, is designed for use in fast-growing mobile computing platforms such as tablet PCs and ultra-thin notebooks. It is the first flash SSD device to support the industry standard SATA interface in a small BGA (Ball Grid Array) package that can be soldered onto any motherboard, and for use with advanced operating systems in mobile computing platforms.
