SanDisk Corporation was founded in 1988 by Dr. Eli Harari, an internationally recognized authority on non-volatile memory technology. Since then, SanDisk has grown to become one of the world’s largest suppliers of flash memory data storage products.
Serving both consumers (via over 100,000 retail storefronts worldwide) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), SanDisk designs, develops, manufactures and markets flash storage card products for a wide variety of electronic systems and digital devices. SanDisk also licenses its technology to a number of other industry-leading companies.
With flash memory’s capability for storing large amounts of data in a compact, removable format, SanDisk’s products have helped drive the exponential growth in sales of digital cameras, multi-function mobile phones, USB flash drives, and other digital consumer devices.
SanDisk currently has approximately 315 issued U.S. patents, and about 160 foreign patents, and is the only company, worldwide, that has the rights to both manufacture and sell every major flash card format, including CompactFlash®, SD™, miniSD™, SmartMedia™, MultiMediaCard™, Reduced Size MultiMediaCard (RS-MMC™ ), Memory Stick PRO™ and related Memory Stick™ products, xD-Picture Card™, TransFlash™ and USB flash drives.
