SanDisk today announced it is working with key industry chipset vendors to help ensure a best-in-class user experience for mobile devices based on Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 OS. Companies such as Intel , Qualcomm and Texas Instruments are using SanDisk iNAND Extreme embedded flash memory with some of their Windows 8 hardware development platforms. SanDisk is working with these companies to optimize its iNAND Extreme flash memory products with Windows 8-based tablet and mobile designs.
SanDisk iNAND Extreme is the company’s highest-performance embedded multi-media card solution with up to 50 MB per second write and 80 MB per second read performance, along with very high speed random performance. SanDisk iNAND Extreme is optimized to improve system responsiveness and multitasking performance, as well as the browsing experience of Windows 8-based devices. iNAND Extreme is currently sampling to customers in 16 GB to 64 GB capacities and is expected to be available in the second quarter.
As smartphones, tablets and other consumer electronics devices become more complex it is increasingly important that all aspects of hardware and software design work together efficiently. Particularly with the introduction of new operating systems and more advanced applications, the need for better integration between hardware and software is essential. SanDisk works with the entire ecosystem of hardware and software vendors to ensure its flash memory chips are optimized to help improve efficiency and deliver a better user experience.
As a result of this commitment to delivering a better mobile experience, SanDisk is deeply engaged with many other companies in the industry. This teamwork is on display this week at the SanDisk booth partner pavilion at Mobile World Congress located in Hall 8, booth number 8B91.
