All product showcases will take place from August 11-13 on the show floor at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Toshiba's theater-style booth #407. Tutorial presentations will also be given at the booth, on topics including SSD storage trends, the evolving needs of enterprises/data centers, choosing the best interfaces for specific applications and more.

Shigeo (Jeff) Ohshima, technology executive, memory design and application engineering for Toshiba, will present a keynote session titled: "Advances in 3D Memory: High Density Storage for Hyperscale, Cloud Applications and Beyond." This session will take place on Tuesday, August 11, from 2:00-2:30 p.m., and will focus on the high density demands of the storage market, as well as the keys to making competitive 3D memory storage solutions a reality. 

"Introducing the industry's only 48-layer solution*1 is just one example of how innovation is in Toshiba's DNA," noted Scott Nelson, senior vice president of TAEC's Memory Business Unit. "As the world's largest flash memory conference, FMS is the perfect venue for us to showcase our new offerings. These products represent more industry firsts for Toshiba, and are in step with our NAND flash leadership role."

Advances in Flash Memory
Last week, Toshiba announced the industry's first*2 TLC 3-bit-per-cell 256Gb*3 (32GB) 3D memory – the next generation of its BiCS FLASH™ – and will be spotlighting this new technology in its booth. BiCS FLASH is based on Toshiba's leading-edge 48-layer stacking process. Toshiba's 3D flash memory solutions enhance the reliability of write/erase endurance, boost write speeds and are suited for a range of high density applications – including consumer electronic devices such as smartphones and laptops; as well as SSDs and enterprise applications*4.

In addition, Toshiba has developed the world's first*5 16-die stacked NAND flash memory utilizing TSV technology – and will be showing a prototype at FMS. This high-performance, low-power solution is targeted to enterprise SSDs.

SSDs for Client, Enterprise Applications
Toshiba will also highlight its new 12Gbit/s*6 SAS PX04S Series of enterprise SSDs with the highest random read IOPS of 270,000*7 along with three new families of NVMe™*8, PCIe®*9 SSDs. These PCIe devices leverage low latency and power efficiency to deliver ultimate SSD performance for various applications including: high performance notebooks, thin notebooks, two-in-one/convertible notebooks and tablets, and server and storage applications. All three SSD product lines are optimized for high performance and low latency, and utilize the PCIe interface - which provides point-to-point links with the processor and reduces system bottlenecks.

The latest enterprise technology from OCZ, a Toshiba Group Company, will also make an appearance at FMS. The Z-Drive 6000 NVMe 2.5-inch SSD series, which launched in May, will be demonstrated to showcase its upcoming dual-port functionality, which provides two separate data paths, offering data redundancy and eliminating single-point failures. This feature delivers high data availability for high-performance computing, enterprise resource planning, databases, transactional workloads, online analytical processing, virtual infrastructure, big data, and more.
