SanDisk has introduced a line of flash memory-based solid-state drives (SSDs) that are designed for ultra low-cost PCs. The SSD is expected to be available in August.

The new SSD is built on both multi-level cell (MLC) and single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash from SanDisk, which is produced at its plant at Yokkaichi, Japan. Memory densities from 4GB to 16GB are available. The SSD delivers a streaming read speed of 39MB/s and a write performance of 17MB/s and supports the parallel ATA (PATA) interface, SanDisk detailed.

SanDisk noted that low-cost PCs have caught on with adults, with manufacturers rolling out devices that are designed for general consumer use.
