Toshiba Announces the XFMExpress Socketed Non-volatile Memory Standard

Toshiba Memory today announced XFMExpress, a new standard of socketed internal non-volatile memory for use in thin-and-light consumer electronics, ultra-thin notebooks, and IoT devices. XFMExpress seeks to solve the increasing problem of repairability of thin-and-light devices, in which the SSD is hardwired onto the device’s mainboard and non-replaceable. Toshiba believes M.2 doesn’t fully meet the Z-height requirements of today’s thin-and-light device designers, and hence there is need for a new space-saving storage device standard that remains internal to the device, but allows for repairability by swapping out the storage device.

This does not compete with SD Express, as it is not being pushed as a removable storage solution, but rather an internal storage device that’s easy to replace. The XFMExpress effort consists of two components, the XFMExpress card, which has roughly similar dimensions to an SD card (14 mm x 18 mm x 1.4 mm), but performance and capacity rivaling full-fledged M.2 NVMe SSDs; and a new socket Toshiba designed in partnership with JAE (Japan Aviation Electronics corp). This socket, made of steel and contact points that have been directly soldered onto the device’s mainboard, is an LGA, with a thin (
