Memtech notes from SSD Market History

Intel spun off its magnetic bubble memory division in 1987 to a management buyout called Memtech.

Memtech later ditched the bubble memory product line which had been developed at Intel but became a pioneer in the rugged and military flash SSD market.

Some of the company's SSDs have gone into deep space missions.

In August 2005 Memtech was acquired by STEC

In those days it was rare for SSD companies to be acquired (as there weren't many in the first place and because the SSD markets value was small). 8 years later STEC itself was acquired too. See also:- SSD company acquisitions
