Latest memory card performance leaps forwards as PCIe and 3D NAND flash integrate
Subs & Systems
Apacer has launched what is claimed to be the world’s fastest memory card, CFexpress. Ideal for 4K or 8K UHD image processing and recognition applications, this card is the latest addition to the company's high-speed PCIe SSD product line. The company currently has the industry’s most complete PCIe product line. The combination of PCIe with 3D TLC NAND flash memory is ideal for companies who are pivoting to high-performance computing, AI, deep learning and intelligent image analysis.
Compliant with the CFA industrial CFexpress 1.0 specification, the memory card, CFexpress Type B, adopts industrial-grade 3D TLC NAND flash memory and -40C~85C industrial-grade wide-temperature ICs from original manufacturers. Thanks to its top-of-the-line PCIe NVMe Gen3x2 interface, it provides transfer speeds up to three to four times higher than SDXC and CFast2.0, giving it theoretical transmission performance of up to 2GB/s. The high-performance, compact and removable features of CFexpress fully meet the demands of high-definition image processing and recognition applications, which can be expected to play an important role in PCIe SSD solutions.
The company's PCIe SSD solutions use multiple firmware technologies to achieve full-channel data protection. For example, through End-to-End Data Protection technology, their SSDs can detect and correct erroneous data in real time, ensure the integrity and correctness of data transmission between the host and the NAND storage area, and greatly improve data reliability.
