Samsung Create tiny BGA SSD for phones and Tablets


Samsung have created a tiny BGA SSD for phones and Tablets, an SSD that offers read and write speeds of 1500MB/s and 600MB/s and capacities of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. 

This SSD offers a size that is smaller than an SD card, but offers speeds that are higher than the average PC SSD, making this a very attractive looking product. Using a BGA packaging this SSD will be required to be soldered directly to the PCB of the final product, meaning that it cannot be replaced, though this also comes with the advantage of decreased size.

Samsung's new PM971 BGA SSD will make use of Samsung's 2-bit MLC V-NAND and Samsung's Photon controller, offering 190K and 150K random read and write IOPS respectively. 

An SSD of this size opens up a whole world of opportunities for manufacturers to give smaller and smaller products larger and larger storage capacities, making it almost seem ridiculous that modern flagship mobile phones and tablets still typically have around 8-64GB of storage.

2bit MLC stacked? That should prove to last very long for a mobile device. I'd get a phone with one, more of a Windows phone since its closer to a computer and can do a little more. Wonder how it will effect battery life thoughQuote
