Where do all these names come from? Who … Greenliant?
Greenliant is now sampling its SATA 6Gb/s NANDrive EX Series ball grid array (BGA) solid state drives (SSDs) to customers that require superior data retention and high program-erase (P/E) cycles. Designed with Greenliant’s EnduroSLC Technology, SATA 6 Gb/s NANDrive EX Series SSDs are capable of performing 50K, 100K and industry-leading 250K+ P/E cycles. EnduroSLC Technology substantially enhances data retention and extends write endurance of 1-bit-per-cell (SLC) SSDs with advanced hardware ECC capabilities and NAND flash management algorithms.
Developed with Greenliant’s DRAM-less controller, SATA 6 Gb/s NANDrive has enhanced power loss data protection and offers four times the performance over the previous generation of SATA NANDrive products. SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs support Native Command Queuing (NCQ) up to 32 commands and use advanced NAND management techniques to optimize the device’s performance during its lifetime. With faster read/write speeds and available in a wide range of capacities (2 GB – 128 GB), SATA 6 Gb/s NANDrive EX Series is ideal for high-performance computing, industrial, transportation, video and networking applications.
Operating at temperatures between -40 and +85 degrees Celsius, SATA NANDrive gives customers long-life and high-reliability data storage that can endure extreme environments. NANDrive BGA SSDs with EnduroSLC Technology can withstand multiple passes of SMT high temperature process without losing data. SATA NANDrive is offered in a 14 mm x 24 mm, 145-ball, 1 mm pitch BGA package for easy, reliable and cost-effective mounting to a system motherboard. For backward compatibility, SATA NANDrive has the same footprint across all capacities.
“Greenliant’s NANDrive SSDs have been designed and tested to meet the durability and performance requirements of high-reliability industrial and networking applications,” said Arthur Kroyan, vice president of business development and marketing, Greenliant. “With the introduction of the SATA NANDrive EX Series, Greenliant now offers BGA SSDs with the industry’s best data retention and endurance capabilities enabled by our EnduroSLC Technology. In addition to the advanced features of this new product series, embedded system designers can also rely on Greenliant’s extensive technical expertise and best-in-class support-from the design-in process to our Long-Term Availability program.”
Greenliant is sampling 50K, 100K and 250K endurance SLC SATA 6 Gb/s NANDrive EX Series SSDs to customers on select product engagements, and plans to start shipping in volume production in 4Q 2019. 3D MLC NAND based SATA 6 Gb/s NANDrive MX Series SSDs are expected to sample in early 4Q 2019 and ship in volume production later in 4Q 2019.
