Innodisk now offers what is claimed to be the first Industrial-Grade PCIe 4.0 SSDs turbocharging 5G and AIoT5G and AIoT. If you need more speed and more capacity, and PCIe 4.0 delivers, doubling the speed of PCIe 3.0 and offering the much-needed performance boost to keep pace with innovation and industry trends. The company is introducing the first industrial-grade PCIe 4.0 SSDs built to handle those challenging conditions.

PCIe 4.0 increases the maximum capacity to 4TB, doubles the bandwidth, and increases the speed to 16GT/s, which is twice that of PCIe Gen3. Although third-generation PCIe provided only modest speed increases over the popular SATA III for storage applications, it did offer the much sought-after advantages of full forward and backward compatibility. PCIe 4.0 preserves that coveted compatibility while also adding noticeable speed increases.

The industrial-grade PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe SSD series offers 112-layer 3D TLC technology, provides temperature tolerance from -40C to 85C, supports AES-256 encryption, and is compliant with TCG OPAL 2.0. It also employs NVMe technology that gives a necessary performance boost and other technological advancements incorporated in NVMe. One notable innovation is Namespace technology, which provides better read and write efficiency and a longer SSD lifetime.

Industrial strength is essential for outdoor use, which is frequently common with higher density 5G infrastructure and crucial for industrial use, where temperatures are high. Some specific applications include smart streetlights, security inspection cameras, 5G mmWave, and 5G internet hosting.
