NVMe SSDs can withstand extreme environments says Greenliant
Rugged, high-capacity NVMe M.2 solid state drives (SSDs) from Greenliant are sampling now. The NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive SSD modules are designed for applications requiring high performance, high capacity removable data storage that can withstand extreme environments, says Greenliant.
The 88 PX Series NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive SSDs operate in the industrial temperature range (-40 to +85 degree C). They use three-bits-per-cell (TLC) 3D NAND flash memory and are built in the widely used 2242 and 2280 form factors.
They provide high performance and low latency for high transactional and business critical applications, explains the company. NVMe is a highly scalable protocol optimised for efficient data transport over PCIe for storage on NAND flash. Small form factor, power-efficient M.2 2242 products support the PCIe Gen3x2 interface and can reach up to 1,550/950Mbytes per second sequential read/write performance. Offered with hardware encryption and DRAM, M.2 2280 products support the PCIe Gen3x4 interface and can reach up to 3,470/3,000Mbytes per second sequential read/write performance. These versatile NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive form factors are suitable for space-constrained, embedded and enterprise systems in cloud computing, broadcasting, industrial gaming, factory automation, networking and security.
The 2242 form factor SSD module offers 64, 128, 256 and 512Gbyte capacities and the 2280 form factor offers 240, 480 or 960Gbytes and 1.92Tbytes.
The modules, with built-in ECC use advanced bit error detection and correction optimised for 3D NAND, while flash management extends SSD longevity using dynamic and static wear levelling.
For data security, the NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive modules support AES-256 / TCG OPAL encryption (2280) and Secure Erase.
Greenliant is sampling NVMe M.2 2242 SSDs to customers on select product engagements, and expects to start shipping in volume production in August 2019. Greenliant plans to start sampling NVMe M.2 2280 SSDs in September 2019 with volume production expected in October 2019.
Greenliant has more than 25 years of solid state storage design expertise and is dedicated to developing durable, reliable and secure storage solutions for embedded systems and enterprise data centres.
The company is headquartered in Silicon Valley with product development centers in Santa Clara, Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen and Hsinchu.
