ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the industrial-grade IM2S3148 M.2 2280 SATA 6Gbps solid state drive. Utilizing the compact M.2 form factor for an easy fit in various installations and delivering up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write, the drive employs durable and long-lasting 3D NAND Flash for extended longevity and improved power efficiency compared to 2D NAND. The IM2S3148 is carefully tested to survive extreme temperatures and humidity as well as provide robust resistance to shocks and vibration. Customers can choose capacities from 128GB to 512GB.
Space and power saving efficiency
Thanks to the compact dimensions of the M.2 2280 form factor, the IM2S3148 requires far less room than 2.5” SATA drives. It can therefore better serve users as more proper embedded storage, rather than add-on storage that requires independent power and more intricate accommodation. The IM2S3148 takes power directly from the M.2 slot, consuming just 2.3W at peak.
Durable 3D NAND
One of the main advantages of stacked Flash when compared to older planar memory is increased endurance. Higher density and redundancy mean a longer drive lifespan even when faced with sustained heavy workloads. The IM2S3148 offers up to 512GB of carefully-sorted and tested 3D TLC NAND, meeting strict ADATA A+ quality standards. In terms of data speeds, the IM2S3148 provides up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write via the SATA III 6Gbps protocol.
Strenuous testing assures industrial-grade strength
The IM2S3148 design process mandated certification to a temperature range of 0 to 70 degrees Celsius. It can operate normally in 0% to 95% humidity and easily handle up to 20G vibration plus up to 1500G/0.5ms shocks. The IMS23148 is hardened against electro-static and electro-magnetic interference and supports TRIM command, S.M.A.R.T, and wear leveling for improved data integrity and functionality over long periods of time. These result in an excellent cost-performance ratio that is sure to be attractive to commercial users.
