Rugged SSD uses 3D TLC NAND technology

Up to 4Tbyte of storage is provided with the HRS-T5E solid state device (SSD) from Smart Modular Technologies. It is in a rugged casing, making it suitable for telemetry, surveillance and other mission critical storage applications, says Smart Modular.

The HRS-T5E 2.5inch SATA SSD joins the company’s Smart Rugged range. It is powered by a flexible, custom flash controller and provides read/write performance suitable for high throughput applications such as flight data recorders and sensor data capture.   

The 3D TLC NAND flash storage device is available in capacities up to 4Tbyte. According to Smart Modular, it requires less power and cooling in applications where traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) are typically used. Recent improvements in 3D NAND, endurance-enhancing data placement and error correction technology, make the T5E suitable for use as a cost-effective replacement for 2D planar-based SSDs for read-intensive applications.

The T5E can be configured with mil-erase sequences or other customer specific requirements. Optional security features include Smart Technology’s Security Data Elimination Technology (SDET) which meets current declassification standards and AES-XTS 256-bit encryption, which automatically protects all data written to the drive. The HRS-T5E also passes MIL-STD-810G standard and can be configured for OPAL 2.0 compliance.

Smart Modular Technologies provides specialty products critical to electronic devices including memory modules, solid state drives and other solid-state storage products and hybrid products available in standard and ruggedised, high performance, high capacity applications. Smart Modular has been serving industry for over 30 years and has a broad customer base, including original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in computing, networking, communications, storage, mobile, mil-aero and industrial markets.

The company is distinguished with an extensive range of customer-specific design capabilities, technical support and its value-added testing services. Smart Modular collaborates closely with global OEM customers throughout the design process and across multiple projects to create solutions for demanding applications with differentiated requirements.

Smart is also a pioneer of secure, ruggedised SSDs which incorporate encryption, secure data elimination and write-protect features required in the high-performance military, aerospace and industrial markets.

Smart Modular has also developed a comprehensive product line of DRAM, Flash and hybrid memory and storage technologies across various form factors.
