Semico mentions in SSD market history

In May 2010 - Semico Research published a report Flash SSDs Making Inroads into Computing - which was just one of their series of SSD related reports.

Semico used to run an annual event - the Semico Summit - held in Phoenix, Arizona. "Widely revered as the semiconductor event of the year, the Summit has been in existence since 1997." The last time that ran was 2011. Their new conference - (November 2013) - is called Semico IMPACT Conference
"The most significant change over the past 10 years is the growth of NAND flash wafer demand. NAND wasnt even reported as a discrete category by the SIA in 2000. In 2005, all NAND products only required 4.4% of total production wafers... this had grown to almost 18% in 2012."
