ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND flash products, today launched the ADATA IUSP33F PCIe ball grid array (BGA) solid state drive (SSD). The SSD sports a form factor that is 80 percent more compact than M.2 2242 SSDs. Combined with a PCIe Gen3x2 interface and 3D Flash memory for excellent performance and durability, the IUSP33F is an ideal solution for slim-form-factor tablets, notebooks, hybrids, mini-PCs, thin clients, and wearables.
“We are thrilled to be introducing the new IUSP33F SSD, a compact solution that will enable next-generation tablets, ultrabooks, and other slim devices, but without compromising on performance and reliability,” said Hedi Huang, Sales Director of ADATA. “But the versatility of the IUSP33F goes beyond just these applications, and are also well-suited for new emerging applications in areas such as robotics, augmented and virtual reality, and automotive.
Small Profile for Slim Devices
With the growing prevalence of 3D Flash and advancements in manufacturing, SSDs are becoming ever more lightweight and compact, and the IUSP33F is a result of these developments. Thanks to its compact 11.5mm by 13mm BGA package and NAND Flash, the IUSP33F sports a profile that is comparable to that of eMMC memory. The reduced profile of the IUSP33F makes it suitable for slim devices where space is at a premium.
High Performance, Lower Power Consumption
The IUSP33F may be small in size but is by no means lacking in performance. It uses a PCIe Gen3x2 interface that conforms to the NVMe 1.3 standard, allowing it to achieve up to 1195MB/s read and 940MB/s write as well as random read and write IOPS of 140,000 and 114,000 respectively. It also supports Host Memory Buffer to maintain high performance without integrated DRAM by using host memory for flash management purposes, while at the same time reducing power consumption. In addition, the IUSP33F leverages 3D Flash memory to provide high storage capacities of 128GB and 256GB.
Longer lifespan, Lower Maintenance Costs
The IUSP33F supports LDPC and SRAM error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors for more reliable data transfers and a longer product lifespan. What’s more, E2E Data Protection defends it from damage or inconsistent data to minimize downtime and reduce maintenance costs.
Rigorously Tested for Utmost Reliability
Every component on the IUSP33F has undergone rigorous screening and testing via its proprietary SSD verification process. The process includes functionality and reliability testing to ensure customers receive a high-quality storage product that offers excellent performance and durability.
