Industrial and embedded application developers to benefit from economic, yet highly reliable range of 3D NAND Flash-based storage solutions.
SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ: SGH), and a leader in specialty memory, storage and hybrid solutions, today announced the introduction of its N200 line of SATA products. With burst speed and low power consumption, the N200 family is an ideal economic option for NAS/SAN storage systems, x86 server-storage appliances, distributed scale-out servers, telecom and networking routers and switches, industrial control, printers and more.
Built with Triple Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND technology, the new N200 line of SATA products, consisting of the mSATA (MO-300), the M.2 2242 and 2280, the Slim SATA (MO-297), and the removable 2.5” solid state drive form factors, delivers the advantages of economical, industrial-grade non-volatile memory to embedded computing applications. The N200 SATA products are offered in capacities ranging from 32GB to 1TB, depending on form factor, and all are available in industrial and commercial temperatures.
N200 products offer excellent burst read/write performance, suitable for applications that require lower drive capacity and utilize the drive for boot up code and operating system (OS) code storage. The higher capacity drives are an excellent choice for transaction intensive applications such as x86 server-storage appliances, telecommunications and networking routers and switches, Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) computer blades, single board computers for defense, gaming, industrial control applications and printers.
Victor Tsai, Flash Product Director at SMART Modular Technologies, said: “We believe SMART has come out with a highly competitive family of SSD products that can meet both the economic and performance needs in SATA products for our customers. The N200 family is the first product in what we see as a robust roadmap of new Flash products that our current and new customers are demanding.”
Other N200 features include advanced static and dynamic wear leveling, advanced error detection and correction circuitry for superior data reliability, self-monitoring analysis and reporting technology. The N200 also supports 48bit LBA (logical block addressing) with a larger maximum transfer size.
