AMD mentions in SSD market history

In May 2002 - AMD announced it was sampling the company's first MirrorBit™ Flash memory device - in which data is stored in 2 discrete and independent locations. By physically separating each bit and maintaining its individual integrity, AMD's MirrorBit devices are inherently more stable and reliable than competing MLC devices and are designed to deliver endurance of at least 100,000 program/erase cycles and 20 years of data retention at 125 degrees Centigrade.

In July 2003 - Spansion was founded as a joint venture by AMD and Fujitsu.

In September 2012 - Dataram announced it will develop a version of its RAMDisk software which will be rebranded by AMD in Q4 under the name of Radeon RAMDisk and aimed at gamers in the Windows market.

In May 2016 - AMD entered the M.2 SSD market with a consumer market oriented banded product line.

memories (We used to be able to write down a list of those which mattered. Now we're seeing many new strangers from strange lands. Even I can't remember who they all are and how to spell their names.)

controllers (Let's not even get started on this subject.)

firmware (Shouldn't this be grouped with controllers? If only it were that simple.)
