Toshiba announces availability of 19nm NAND SSDs
New series with capacities from 60GB to 512GB combines high performance and efficiency for data-intensive, energy-sensitive applications
Düsseldorf, Germany, 13th March, 2013 - Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced that solid state drives (SSDs) built on the company’s 19nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash technology are now readily available across Europe. Toshiba was the first company to develop 19nm NAND SSDs and the family includes the world’s smallest and highest density NAND flash drives.
Toshiba’s THNSNH family addresses the storage, performance and power efficiency demands of even the most data-intensive and energy-sensitive systems. The drives are ideal for high-end notebooks, tablets, PCs, all-in-one desktop computers and industrial PCs. Capacities of 512GB1, 256GB, 128GB and 60GB are all now available in 2.5-inch form factors with a choice of 7.0mm and 9.5mm profiles. mSATA™ modules with capacities of 256GB, 128GB and 60GB are also available.
Toshiba’s innovation with the THNSNH series includes data protection through use of Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC™), Toshiba’s robust and highly efficient error correction code technology.

1. One Gigabyte (1GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes. One Terabyte (1TB) means 1012 = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and other factors.
