Hardware manufacturer SMART Modular has introduced three new additions to its DuraFlash ME2 SATA SSD storage range this week in the form of the M.2 2242 SATA, mSATA (MO-300A) and Slim SATA (MO-297A) that complement the current M.2 2280 and 2.5″ SSD. All three of these new SSD storage solutions are available in a variety of capacities. The M.2 2242 is available in capacities from 240 GB to 960 GB and up to 560 MB/s Read and to 500 MB/s Write. The mSATA and Slim SATA are available in capacities from 240 GB to 1920 GB and up to 560 MB/s Read and 520 MB/s Write.
“The new ME2 SATA SSD form factors are ideal for embedded computing, transportation, medical and industrial applications that require either smaller or legacy SSD form factors. Built with Triple-Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND technology, they are available in both commercial (0 °C to 70 °C) and industrial (-40 °C to 85 °C) operating temperatures. The ME2 family SSDs provide enhanced reliability by incorporating advanced LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) error detection and correction, plus end-to-end data path protection ensuring extremely high data integrity and reliability.
All three SSDs feature SMART Modular’s proprietary NVMSentry firmware that combines features for both customization and/or optimized product performance. For example, the firmware algorithm is adjustable in order to tailor performance to meet specific application needs, plus there are add-on proprietary features available to customers, including enhanced secure erase and customized functions.”
