The Evolution of Portable SSD

The external SSD drive, also known as a solid-state disk (SSD), has a rich history of technological advancements. Initially, SSDs were similar to SSDs, but later, SATA Express and M.2 interfaces were developed to enhance their performance. In the late 1980s, Zitel, Inc. introduced DRAM-based SSD products called "RAMDisk". SanDisk Corporation revolutionized the industry in 1991 by releasing the first 20 MB SSD for IBM ThinkPad laptops. In 2009, SSDs saw significant improvements with the introduction of a PCI Express ×8 interface by OCZ Technology and the announcement of an SSD with 6 Gbit/s speeds by Micron Technology. Despite their impressive performance, SSDs can experience data leakage over time without power, but this issue is mitigated by the use of 3D TLC NAND-based flash memory.
