– eMMC and SSD are both non-volatile memory storage types that use NAND flash technology but significant differences do exist. – A key difference is that eMMC is embedded and cannot be removed and upgraded, but an SSD hard drive can be replaced or upgraded according to user requirements.
– Only a few companies handle global SSD production: SanDisk, SK Hynix, Seagate Technology, Western Digital Corp, Crucial, Intel, Kingston Technology, Micron Technology Inc., and Samsung – The type of NAND technology an SSD uses determines its lifespan.
