Diversifying ADATA offerings for industrial storage, all models feature wide temperature tolerance as well as shock, vibration, and humidity resistance well beyond consumer product ratings. ISDD336 and IUDD336 cards utilize durable and long-lasting 3D MLC NAND Flash, and are fully compliant with SD 3.0/SPI specifications, making them reliable choices for embedded systems. Performance across the board reaches 95MB/s read and 90MB/s write. Customers can choose ISDD336 SD cards in 16GB to 256GB capacities, and IUDD336 microSD cards in 16GB to 128GB capacities.
Tough storage with more options
ADATA continues to increase its focus on industrial-grade products, with more offerings for users. As the SD standard has clear advantages for industrial customers thanks to its compact form factor, durability, and low power requirements, ADATA strives to provide more choice in the SD space. Thus, ISDD336 cards arrive in SD form factor while IUDD336 cards deliver the same quality and performance in microSD.
Targeting consumer’s growing demand for computer storage capacity and higher performance, the world’s leading memory brand, Team Group today announces the launch of the solid state drive L5 LITE-3D with all new 3D NAND technology. The latest generation of 3D NAND flash memory has overcome the technical barrier of 2D NAND. With features of durability and low energy consumption, it has gradually become the mainstream memory of the latest generation and enhances the overall capacity of the solid state drive, the performance, and the reliability. It not only provides a better performance and endurance but also breaks through the technical and capacity limitations of planar chips.
The L5 LITE-3D solid state drive is 4 times faster than the traditional hard drive. Its excellent performance and read/write speed not only allow fast boot/shutdown time but also speed up the response time of all application, so consumers can enjoy the high-speed performance immediately after the upgrade. It is lightweight and has an industry-standard 2.5-inch. With only 7mm in height, it is best suited for Ultrabooks on the market. Whether it is for laptop or desktop, the upgrade can be done quickly. It is using SATA III 6Gbps specification and capacities available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, etc. The read speed performance is above 470 MB/s*, which not only easily improves the computer performance, but it is also the best bargain available.
Longsys, a world leader in consumer flash storage, today announced that it has acquired the Lexar trademark and branding rights from Micron Technology, Inc.

The mission to make Lexar the go-to brand for high-performance removable storage continues, and we will expand upon it to offer even more compelling solutions as the age of wireless and big-data impact the consumer storage markets."Add a comment
ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today confirmed that its Premier microSDXC/microSDHC UHS-I Class 10 cards now support the new SD Association A1 standard. Part of SD 5.1 specifications, A1 has been designed for running apps off external storage, going beyond traditional SD card uses such as accessing photos and video. At the same time, ADATA has also implemented V10 and V30 video recording capabilities on all of its Premier Pro microSD and SD cards, denoting at least 10MB/s and 30MB/s of video recording bandwidth, respectively.
SD cards now able to run apps just like internal storage
An evolution long promoted by the SD Association, the A1 specification is part of SD 5.1 requirements. It shows that a microSD or SD card can support sufficiently high read speeds and IOPS counts to successfully run most apps without latency being an issue. In other words, A1 certified microSD and SD cards equal internal storage for app performance. They give users much greater freedom, as before apps were limited to internal storage even if large external storage was installed. With A1 and future specifications, users have the ability to install many more apps than would normally be the case, thanks to large add-in storage that is able to run said apps without compromise.
Western Digital Corporation, a global data storage technology and solutions leader, today announced its 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card, the world’s highest-capacity microSD card for use in mobile devices. Two years after introducing its record-breaking 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card, Western Digital has doubled the capacity within the same tiny form factor. Keeping up with the demands of today’s mobile-centric lifestyle, the new SanDisk microSD card provides consumers with the freedom to capture, save and share photos, videos and apps, and enjoy offline content - all without worrying about storage limitations.
“Mobile devices have become the epicenter of our lives, and consumers are now accustomed to using their smartphones for anything from entertainment to business. We are collecting and sharing massive amounts of data on smartphones, drones, tablets, PCs, laptops and more. We anticipate that storage needs will only continue to grow as people continue to expect more sophisticated features on their devices and desire higher quality content,” Jeff Janukowicz, research vice president, IDC. “We estimate mobile device users worldwide will install over 150 billion applications alone this year, which require a ton of memory on all of our favorite devices.”Add a comment
ATP, the leading manufacturer of rugged SSDs and DRAM modules for the industrial markets, debuts its first NVMe based M.2 2280 SSD offering twice the performance of SATA-based SSDs. This newest generation SSD is designed to meet the storage demand of I/O intensive data processing and low latency requirement for industrial and mission critical applications, including surveillance, medical imaging, and many network- storage systems with fast caching requirement.
By adopting NVMe Rev.1.2 specifications and integrating the latest 3D NAND MLC technology, ATP’s M.2 2280 NVMe SSD is constructed via a PCIe Gen 3x4 bus interface offering from 128GB up to 1TB of memory capacity to boost its performance to exceed the previous bottleneck of AHCI standards, delivering Sequential Read up to 1,260 MB/s and Sequential Write up to 980 MB/s.
While other memory suppliers emphasize on configuring the performance attributes of an NVMe SSD, ATP takes a step further instead in carefully considering all aspects of enhancing memory longevity and reliability for mission critical environments.This includes careful selection of BOM planning with key suppliers, and adding wide temperature and extreme power cycling testing. Heat dissipation is another major issue commonly encountered for NVMe drives. Through temperature feedback and optimized thermal throttling mechanism, ATP’s NVMe SSD avoids drastic performance drop or possible damage to controller caused by overheating.Add a comment
