SanDisk has launched a new pSSD flash memory module that is aimed at the emerging netbook market. The new SSD modules are available in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities and have a streaming read speed of 39MB/sec and a streaming write performance of 17 MB/sec.

SanDisk points out that the drives will support both Windows and Linux, making them ideal for use in systems like the Asus Eee. The drives are scheduled to be available starting in August. SanDisk says that the drives are built using its Multi-Level Cell and Single-Level Cell flash memory. Pricing for the modules is unknown.

"We're excited to be involved in this emerging market of ULCPCs, which take the concept of affordability into new directions - ones that are ideally suited to the multiple benefits of SanDisk's technology," said Rich Heye, Senior Vice President and General Manager at SanDisk's Solid State Drives (SSD) Business Unit. "Based on consumer response to some of the first ULCPCs, these devices are quickly developing a popular following. Our new pSSDs are enablers for manufacturers to create what could become the next wave of personal and portable computing devices."
