Greenliant NANDrive SSD Mass Production Announced
Greenliant Systems has begun mass production of its industrial grade SATA interface NANDrive SSDs. I-grade SATA NANDrive devices keep customer data safe, operating at temperatures between -40 and +85 degrees Celsius. The industrial grade SATA NANDrive is currently offered in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, and 8 GB; larger capacity models are planned for future releases. The SATA NANDrives combine Greenliant’s internally developed NAND controller with SLC NAND flash die for a fully integrated SSD in a multi-chip package.
SATA NANDrive is one of the smallest SSDs on the market (14mm x 24mm x 1.95mm), making it ideal for applications that require the endurance and speed of solid-state storage in very small form factors. Additionally, the 1mm ball pitch package makes mounting firm and easy for a system motherboard, allowing for resistance to shock and vibration.
NANDrive Features include:
- Advanced Security: The advanced security features of SATA NANDrive include a unique device ID, password protection and four independent zones that the user can set to different protection levels. In addition, SATA NANDrive allows the user to select specific areas of the SSD to “instant” erase sensitive content, instead of having to erase the entire drive.
- Data Integrity Protection: SATA NANDrive’s system-level firmware solution addresses NAND data retention issues, as well as preserves data integrity during power interrupts, reducing the risk of data loss.
- Advanced Wear Leveling: Greenliant’s NAND management technology is based on advanced static and dynamic wear-leveling algorithms that maximize the NANDrive lifespan allowing system engineers to address applications with long lifetime requirements such as industrial, medical, military, enterprise networking and automotive products.
The Industrial grade 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB SATA NANDrives are currently available. You can order GLS85LS products through a Greenliant authorized distributor and sales representative. Customers can also request NANDrive product samples and evaluation boards online.
