Sivaram said: “annexation of new BiCS2 expand Nand three-dimensional techniques lineup has contributed dramatically, which enhances our ability to meet the needs of the full range of customers in the area of ​​retail and mobile devices and data centers of sale applications.”

This is expected to be BiCS3 IT application, developed in collaboration with Western Digital partner for technology and manufacturing: Toshiba, with capacities of 256 GB initially, and will be available in a range of capacities up to 500 GB per chip.

Expects Western Digital supply BiCS3 shipments to retail markets in the last quarter of 2016, and begin to distribute OEM samples in this quarter, while still supplying the previous generation of NAND technology shipments of three-dimensional: BiCS2 going on to customers in the retailer market as well as the distribution of OEM samples .
