How to make an SSD: Touring A-DATA's Taipei Factory

While Chris, our head SSD guru guy, was in Taiwan for Computex, we thought we should hit up our friends at A-DATA and see if we could arrange a personal tour of their Taipei factory. On Monday 7th of June, still a little exhausted and also sick from the craziness of the busy show, we headed on down and got things rolling.

Walking distance from A-DATA's headquarters just out of Taipei City you will find A-DATA's factory production facility. It is here where all the magic happens. A-DATA has a capacity of 100,000 double sided memory modules per day and 3,000 SSDs per day.

After getting done with the official tour, we went back to the start of the line again with microphone in Chris' hand and of course took over all of the SMT machines and computers. Chris tells us from step one right through to the end of the process how an SSD is made including not only the robot arms, but also the testing and packaging, and shipping process.

The particular drive we watched getting made was one based off a SandForce SF-1200 controller called the A-DATA S599 or "the one you really really want!", according to Chris. Without further ado, hit the play button on the YouTube video above and have a look.

Chris and I will be taking orders for custom-made solid state drives starting out tomorrow - so, let us know what you need and we will get them out to you. Yeah, we didn't tell A-DATA that part yet, but they should be cool with it... we think.
