SMART Modular Technologies has increased its DuraFlash ME2 SATA SSD product family with the addition of M.2 2242 SATA, mSATA (MO-300A) and Slim SATA (MO-297A) that complement the M.2 2280 and 2.5" SSD form factors in the company's DuraFlash portfolio.
The new SSD form factors are excellent for embedded computing, transportation, medical and industrial applications that need smaller or legacy SSD form factors. Constructed with Triple-Level Cell 3D NAND technology, they are available in commercial (0C to 70C) and industrial (-40C to 85C) operating temperatures. The SSDs offer enhanced reliability by incorporating advanced Low Density Parity Check error detection and correction, plus end-to-end data path protection assuring extremely high data integrity and reliability.
All three SSDs feature the company’s proprietary NVMSentry firmware that consolidates features for customisation and/or optimised product performance. For example, the firmware algorithm is adjustable to tailor performance to satisfy specific application requirements, plus there are add-on proprietary features available to customers, including enhanced secure erase and customised functions.
SMART Modular’s Flash product director, Victor Tsai, explains the reason behind this product expansion: “By expanding the ME2 product line, we’re able to give our customers a full portfolio of SATA products with these enhanced features. Plus, it provides a broader choice of products for our customers across a wider, more sophisticated degree of market applications.”
All three of these new products are provided in a mixture of capacities. The M.2 2242 is offered in capacities from 240GB to 960GB and up to 560MB/s Read and 500MB/s Write. The mSATA and Slim SATA are offered in capacities from 240GB to 1920GB and up to 560MB/s Read and 520MB/s Write.
