3D NAND to make up half of all flash memory production

Today, 04:02 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

3D NAND, which stacks layer upon layer of flash cells atop one another like a microscopic skyscraper, will become the prominent technology for all flash memory this year, according to a new report.

According to DRAMeXchange's latest forecast, NAND flash manufacturers have focused their efforts on converting fabrication plants to 3D NAND, which is denser, faster and less expensive to produce than traditional 2D (planar) NAND.

BiCS (Bit Cost Scaling) is the vertical stacking or 3D technology that WD and partner Toshiba use to produce solid state drives and other NAND flash products. Their latest memory stores three bits of data per cell and stacks those cells 64-layers high.

IDG Contributor Network: Filestack reverses the concept of the CDN to

Today, 03:00 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

Filestack is a modular service that developers use to include file uploading into their applications. Much like Stripe enables mobile payments, and Twilio enables communications, Filestack allows software developers to integrate more than 25 social networks and cloud drives with just a few lines of code. 

End users can upload content from websites and mobile apps like Facebook, Instagram and Dropbox -- or wherever their content is stored. Filestack enables developers to upload and store large files, transform and manipulate images and other file types, and deliver that content with blazing speed, responsively, across any type of desktop or mobile device.

Startup claims 3D printers create metal parts faster, more cheaply

Today, 01:01 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

A two-year-old startup today unveiled two new 3D metal printing machines, one of which can create prototypes and the other production parts faster and cheaper than existing technology, the vendor says.

Desktop Metal, based in Burlington, Mass., demonstrated the Desktop Metal (DM) Studio System, which it calls an "office-friendly" metal 3D-printing system for rapid prototyping, and the DM Production, a manufacturing-class printer it claims is 100 times faster than today's laser sintering machines.

The DM Studio System includes both a printer and microwave-enhanced sintering furnace that can produce metal 3D printed parts in an engineer's office or on a shop floor. The company claims its DM Studio System is 10 times less expensive than existing metal prototyping technology.
