Company to Demonstrate Wide-Ranging Lineup of Memory and Storage Solutions, Introduce New Series of SSDs for Ultra-Thin Notebook Designs

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2019 – This week at CES® 2019A new window will open. , Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, will be on hand to highlight its BiCS FLASH™ 3D technology – and the role it plays in the company’s latest flash memory, UFS, solid state drive (SSD), and KumoScale™ software products. TMA will also leverage CES as a stage to debut the fourth generation of its single-package ball grid array (BGA) SSD product line: the BG4 series.

Making its public debut at CES, TMA’s BG4 series – a new lineup of ultra-compact, single-package NVMe™ SSDs – places both the flash and controller in one package, bringing flexibility to the design of ultra-thin notebooks, embedded systems and boot storage applications for servers and data centers. The BG4 series leverages TMA’s innovative 96-layer BiCS FLASH.

This approach has made us one of the world’s largest flash memory suppliers and has enabled us to lead the way forward in the migration from floating gate to 3D and 96-layer BiCS FLASH QLC (quadruple-level-cell). We are also helping to chart the path forward in areas such as virtual reality, automotive infotainment, artificial intelligence, technology, and more.”
