To discuss the reunion of families separated in the 1950-1953 Korean war, South Korea today proposed working-level talks with North Korea on September 7.

Millions of Koreans have been separated for six decades as the Korean war ended in a 1953 armistice. The last family reunion was held at North Korea’s mountain resort of Kumgang in February 2014. About 66,000 South Koreans — 12 percent of them aged above 90, are wait-listed for an eventual reunion, but only several hundred can be chosen each time.

The move came days after Koreas agreed on Tuesday to defuse tensions on the Korean Peninsula following a 43-hour marathon dialogue.

The reunion  programme began in a summit between North-South Korea in 2000.

Samsung Set To Produce The First 4-Bit SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) For Consumers.

The South Korean tech giant said it would launch several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year with 1TB (terabyte), 2TB, and 4TB capacities in the widely used 2.5-inch form factor.

Setting the stage for rolling out advanced memory technology to meet the growing demand for faster, more reliable performance across a wide span of applications, Samsung on Tuesday said it began mass producing the industry’s first 4-bit SATA solid-state drive (SSD) for consumers.

The South Korean tech giant said it would launch several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year with 1TB (terabyte), 2TB, and 4TB capacities in the widely used 2.5-inch form factor.

The new 4-bit quad-level cell (QLC) SSD is expected to bring a new level of efficiency to consumer SSDs.

“Samsung’s new 4-bit SATA SSD will herald a massive move to terabyte-SSDs for consumers,” said Jaesoo Han, Executive Vice President of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics.

South Korean brand Samsung is all set to launch several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year.
“Samsung’s new 4-bit SATA SSD will herald a massive move to terabyte-SSDs for consumers.

“As we expand our line-up across consumer segments and to the enterprise, 4-bit terabyte-SSD products will rapidly spread throughout the entire market,” Han added.

Typically, as data stored within a memory cell increases from three bits to four, the chip capacity per unit area would rise and the electrical charge (used to determine information from a sensor) would decrease by as much as 50 per cent, making it considerably more difficult to maintain a device’s desired performance and speed.

However, Samsung’s 4-bit 4TB QLC SATA SSD maintains its performance levels at the same level as a 3-bit SSD, by using a 3-bit SSD controller and TurboWrite technology, according to the company.

With its new 1Tb 4-bit V-NAND chip, Samsung said it will be able to efficiently produce a 128GB memory card for smartphones that will lead the charge toward higher capacities for high-performance memory storage. (IANS)
