Innodisk has launched what it claims is the world’s first industrial-grade 112-Layer 3D TLC SSDs, incorporating the SATA 3TG6-P and 3TE7 series and the PCIe Gen3x4 and Gen4x4 series.

The new TLC SSD Series marks the company's continued development with 3D NAND design, delivering greater efficiency, faster performance, and increased capacity. Compared to the previous 96-layer technology that provided a maximum of 2TB storage, the new 112-layer PCIe Gen 4x4 series expand the capacity to 8TB for U.2 SSD and 4TB for M.2 (P80). Beyond capacity increases, 112-layer is also quicker, with the PCIe Gen 4x4 series clocking in at speeds up to 7500/6700MB/s (8CH) and 3800/3000MB/s (4CH).

The marked increase in performance satisfies the increasing demands of AIoT applications and industries in 5G, edge computing, deep learning, smart surveillance and smart medical, where speed and higher capacity support are crucial.

The new 112-Layer 3D TLC SSD series also possesses other essential improvements to fit industrial and IoT market demand. Reliability is paramount, so a two-pronged approach of ECC correction by LDPC within a page and RAID between blocks gives a double layer of protection for higher data security.

Consistent and stable linear performance is achieved through a direct-write mode that decreases performance drops and WAF. The series also offers better endurance, greater data security with built-in iDataGuard and iPowerGuard, improving compatibility and protection in critical power environments and assuring sudden power loss data integrity.
