  • editor's comments:- July 2012 - SST makes flash memory and controllers and is no longer an SSD company.

    But back in 2009 - SST used to market a PATA compatible SSD chip with upto 8GB capacity called the NANDrive. Designed for embedded applications the 12mm x 24mm LBGA package SSD had sustained R/W speeds upto 30MB/s and 8MB/s respectively. Security features include a factory pre-programmed unique ID, and a user programmable ID.

    In April 2010 - SST sold its SSD product line to a new startup founded by SST's founder - called Greenliant Systems.

    And in the same month SST was acquired by Microchip Technology.
