What do they say about 'Moore' solid state drive capacity and what do they say about price ? 5 years I think HDD will be in the same place as floppy disks.. Museum - with the 8 inch hard disk - collectors item.

SSD could eventually take over the market, but I don't see that happening in the near future. The cost per terabyte would have to get close to parity and HDD has many more oppotunities to grow their capacity.

It is surprising to see that Toshiba is investing more into HDD research. I believe in next 5 years all the HDD will be probably replaced by the SSD in major personal computing devices.

markhahn, I was afraid people may not like the comment when I posted it, but I think you will feel differently about it if you read the information I provided links to.

Yeah it is ironic that Toshiba, the king of NAND, still supports HDD. Not very promotional for SSDs.

That is American. Nothing is wrong with it. He is just providing more info. That he wrote it is not wrong. Phil, send more.

HDD market is ever lasting market. It is fine to do research in this segment. One day low cost high speed solid state memory might over take HDD technology.

distasteful bit of self-promotion, Phil.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
