32 nanometer process technology feels so… 2009. These days, Toshiba Storage Products is pushing something quite a bit smaller, as the outfit’s new THNSNF solid state drives are said to be the world’s first to take advantage of 19nm process NAND flash memory. 2012 just so happens to mark the 25th anniversary of Tosh’s meddling in NAND, and the new series will be carrying the torch into even more bantam devices. Slates, Ultrabooks and perhaps a phablet or two may end up sporting on of these drives, replete with MLC (multi-level cell) flash. We’re told that a trio of sizes will ship: there’s a 9.5mm height edition, a 7mm version and an mSATA variant, all of which operate with a SATA 6Gbps interface. Power utilization is pegged at less than 0.1W, and mass production is expected to begin in August; mum’s the word on partner companies implementing these into new products, but we’re guessing the holiday season will be full of ‘em.
