Now all the flash suppliers need to update their anobit technology by going to Apple. Apple has great leverage against competitors ( any product with SSDs) now.

You mean Anobit chips cam help break the dependency on flash suppliers?

Apparently Sandisk did supply for Ipod Nano, but possibly not a big enough supplier for Apple tablets or phones. With Anobit controllers, Apple does not need to depend on Samsung or Sandisk or Toshiba only for flash supply.

Apple has until now been buying from Samsung, yes. But with the lawsuits, most analysts say Apple's looking to wean itself off Samsung...

Apple gets its flash from Samsung and Toshiba. Sandisk not doing business directly with Apple.

You'd think so, right? But apparently consumer demand is fickle. And Apple bought Anobit in order to keep its Flash in-house. So Sandisk has to compete with everyone else to get "the best of the rest..."

Is SanDisk only in the memory card and SSD business? Seems like selling flash chips to tablet OEMs would be in a good growth engine right now.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
