ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched industrial-grade ISDD361 SD cards. The cards employ meticulously-sorted and tested SLC NAND flash, and feature a hardened design optimized for extreme cold, heat, shock, and vibration. ISDD361 cards are meant for deployment in manufacturing, professional camcorder use, travel, photography, and military applications. They deliver up to 90MB/s read and are available in capacities ranging from 256MB to 16GB.
Durable, quality-assured SLC Flash
ADATA uses only the best single-level cell Flash on industrial-grade SD cards. ISDD361 models employ SLC, which surpasses MLC and TLC (multi-level cell and triple-level cell) NAND flash in durability, longevity, and reliability. With ADATA A+ Testing methodology in place, users get SD cards with guaranteed quality, backed by a 3-year warranty.
Built rugged for extreme environments, made smart to guard data
ISDD361 cards can handle a -40°C to 85°C temperature range. For shock resistance, they are rated up to 1500G/0.5ms, while vibration tolerance extends to 20G. At the same time, the cards are more than rugged, they are also sophisticated. Products support S.M.A.R.T. diagnostics, wear leveling to prevent unbalanced cell wear, and error correction code.
Sometimes bigger is better, especially when it comes to storage space.

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the SX7000 SSD as part of its growing XPG gaming brand. The SX7000 uses an M.2 2280 form factor and carefully-sorted 3D TLC NAND Flash, paired with an SMI controller. The SX7000 interfaces with motherboards via PCI Express 3.0 x4 and meets NVMe 1.2 specifications to deliver 1800MB/s read, 850MB/s write, and 130K/140K IOPS. The SX7000 is available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB, making the most of the flexibility of 3D NAND to present consumers with greater choice based on budget and need.
Extra-fast PCIe3x4 M.2 for a wider audience
The SX7000 connects to desktop and notebook PCs via low profile M.2 2280 and channels data through four-lane PCI Express 3.0. It uses 3D TLC NAND, meticulously sorted to ADATA standards, making the SX7000 a more accessible first-time M.2 purchase for many users. With NVMe 1.2, the SX7000 represents a massive upgrade compared to SATA SSDs and hard drives. Read speeds go up to 1800MB/s while write performance reaches 850MB/s. Those equal roughly ten times HDD performance, and compare very favorably with the 500MB/s read/write of SATA SSDs. Read and write IOPS figures are also at least 40% higher than SATA SSDs. The SX7000 is ideal as a fast boot/OS drive for first time buyers, cutting down boot delays to a few seconds. As a storage drive it offers significantly lower loading times in games and other applications.Add a comment
To meet the ever growing demands of the embedded and industrial storage market, Innodisk is launching the SATA 3IE4 series with integrated Marvell controllers. Running on Innodisk’s proprietary iSLC technology, it provides performance equal to that of SLC at a much lower cost. The iSLC technology in combination with integrated LDPC error correcting code ensures an extended lifespan; upward to seven times that of standard MLC products.
Traditional MLC flash boasts high capacity, but often falls short with regards to product lifespan. SLC is a better choice for performance and longevity; however the cost is comparatively high. This is where iSLC comes in as a golden mean with a drastic increase in lifespan compared to MLC products, while sporting SLC like performance at a much lower price. This makes iSLC SSDs the perfect choice for industrial and embedded applications where MLC often do not meet longevity demands and SLC are seen as too costly.
The in-house designed technology behind iSLC is simple, but ingenious. MLC cells which typically hold two bits are made to hold just one instead – effectively emulating SLC cells. With this is place, not only is lifespan increased, but write speed reaches SLC levels.Add a comment

Sony is expanding its professional media lineup with the introduction of two new G Series Professional Solid State Drives in 960GB (SV-GS96) and 480GB (SV-GS48) capacities. These SSDs were designed to meet the growing need for reliable, external video recording devices docked to camcorders or high-performance DSLRs. For content creators looking for more efficient, stable and flexible hi-bitrate recording in often unpredictable environments, Sony’s G Series SSDs deliver optimal performance for several popular professional video recording devices, while offering a far longer lifetime.
Building on the reliability synonymous with Sony’s Professional Media products, the new SSDs are a solid option for respective video recorders, offering videographers stable high-speed capabilities, a sense of security and lower cost of ownership due to their longer life. Using Sony’s Error Correction Code technology, the 960GB G Series SSD achieves up to 2400 TBW (terabytes written), while the 460GB drive can reach 1200 TBW, resulting in less frequent replacement and increased ROI. 2400 TBW translates to about 10 years of use for the SV-GS96, if data is fully written to the drive an average of five times per week.
The drives are also designed for ultra-fast, stable data writing. While other SSDs have a tendency for data write speeds to suddenly drop after repeated re-write cycles, Sony G Series SSDs feature built-in technology preventing sudden speed decreases, while ensuring stable recording of high bitrate 4K video without frame dropping. For example, used with an ATOMOS Shogun Inferno, G series SSD is able to record video at 4K 60p (ProRes 422 HQ) mode stably.Add a comment
