Micron shows off 16nm MLC chips to provide larger storage space per NAND for Consumer Class SSDs

Idaho based company, Micron, has shown off 16nm 128Gb MLC flash NAND chips which will allow (according to Micron) to provide higher storage capacity in a smaller form factor.

Micron said in a press statement that this new MLC chip fabrication is the “most advanced processing node for any sampling semiconductor device” as it allows to make about a whopping 6TB of storage NAND per wafer. The 16nm samples are being shipped to selected partners who will be planning to implement this for consumer class SSDs.
