JEDEC has initiated standardization for the Solid State Drive (SSD) segment of the computer industry. This nascent market is poised for explosive growth as the price gap between rotating media hard disks and non-volatile alternatives such as flash drives decreases. The JEDEC effort will focus on broad based standardization of interfaces between the host system and the SSD. Realizing that there are a number of companies considering a variety of SSD technologies, JEDEC encourages them to contact the JEDEC office to coordinate efforts and accelerate user adoption of the technology.
