The uniquely attractive Bolt B75 Pro Portable SSD with USB 3.1 Gen2 interface has joined Silicon Power’s (SP) lineup of noteworthy memory storage devices. In an effort to create a well-rounded portable SSD with combined design and performance prowess, SP blended the award-winning design of a previous model with the functionality of an in-demand SSD. The inspiration originated from a German transport plane born nearly a century ago with corrugated metal skin. It inspired the SP design team to add prominent, strengthening ridges to the portable SSD.
Elegant Design Meets Practical Functionality
Wrapped in a sleek and slim yet lightweight aluminum body that’s military-grade shockproof, the Bolt B75 Pro is a perfect example of “form follows function.” On the exterior, its 3D ridges provide a barrier from scratches and fingerprints, while the L-shaped LED light gives clear indication of the data transfer status from nearly any angle.
On the interior, it has huge storage capacity (256GB/512GB/1TB/2TB) and reads and writes at blistering speeds (up to 520 and 420MB/s respectively).
The Bolt B75 Pro Portable SSD is an eye-catching option for users who want to expand their computer’s capability and boost performance anywhere. The competitive landscape of portable SSDs is rich with quality devices. With this striking addition, SP hopes to combine tremendous capabilities with their famed design in order to dominate a crowded space.Add a comment

ADATA Technology a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announces the launch of its industrial-grade ADATA IUDD362 microSD cards that features high-quality SLC NAND Flash for enhanced durability and a prolonged lifespan, ideal for automated systems.
Wide Operating Temperature Range and Excellent Durability
The ADATA IUDD362 microSD card is ideally suited for industrial systems that are in continuous operation. Equipped with SLC NAND Flash, the IUDD362 offer improved stability, durability, and performance over its counterparts that utilize MLC or TLC NAND Flash. What’s more, the IUDD362 is designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures, from -40°C to 85°C, ensuring optimal performance, even in harsh conditions. Also, the IUDD362 is rated at 3 million MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) for added trustworthiness.
Stability, Reliability, Peace of Mind
The IUDD362 comes in capacities of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB, sports read/write speeds of up to 30/25/MB per second, and can operate on just 0.6W or power. These characteristics make it ideal for industrial automation (e.g., PLC), transportation systems (e.g., in-vehicle data loggers) and other applications that support microSD cards. In order to ensure the stability required by industrial applications, the IUDD362 supports a number of technologies. These include Error Correcting Code (ECC) technology, which can detect and fix errors to ensure data integrity, Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), which can indicate imminent drive failures, and Wear-Leveling, which is a technique that enables the use of each block of NAND Flash installed in memory from being damaged prematurely, thus prolonging its service life.
OWC; a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company and one of the world’s most respected creators of SSDs, Thunderbolt external drives, PC & Mac docking solutions and performance upgrade kits, today proudly announced its new line of Aura Pro X2 SSDs for select MacBook Pro Retina, MacBook Air, Mac Mini and Mac Pro models. OWC believes the need for more storage capacity shouldn’t force users into spending $1,300-$4,000+ for a new MacBook when a DIY upgrade for a fraction of the cost of a new model keeps Macs running at peak performance for years to come.
Up to 16X the Capacity
It is easy to underestimate how much storage you need and how fast that original stock drive inside your Mac can fill up, especially with photo and video files, games, or even just email. Aura Pro X2 SSDs are available in capacities up to 2TB, giving users a massive (up to 16X) boost in space to work and play. Benefiting from nearly a decade of SSD design experience to use less power and run cooler, Aura Pro X2 is the best way to upgrade most 2013 to 2017 model year Apple Macs.Add a comment

Optiarc, Inc., best known for its professional line of optical disc drives, has entered the world of digital flash storage with a new line of high-grade Solid State Drives (SSD). The Optiarc VP Series SSD focuses on protecting data integrity to safeguard the user’s vulnerable content by protecting against cell corruption and permanent fatal errors, ensuring the user will be able to maintain their content indefinitely.
Data retention has become an integral concern in the flash storage industry. As the capacity continues to increase with advanced 3D NAND flash memory technology, currently utilizing 96-layer memory cells, SSD manufacturers are able to increase flash memory storage while decreasing the device's physical footprint. The problem is that 3D NAND cells are built vertically in strings, meaning a defect in a single cell will most likely negatively affect the performance of the entire cell string. This minor contamination could lead to massive failure potentially causing total data loss.
“Given that SSD offers higher performance with less power consumption than a standard magnetic hard drive (HDD), plus capacities are increasing while costs are decreasing, SSD are becoming the de facto hard drives, for personal computers,” declares Ryan Swerdloff, VP of Sales and Marketing. With more people using SSD as their primary hard drive, these SSD will contain both the user’s operating system as well as their personal data. If that SSD were to irretrievably fail, the user could lose content that is extremely valuable and irreplaceable.Add a comment
Western Digital Corp. today unveiled the new Western Digital WD Purple SC QD312 Extreme Endurance microSD card for designers and manufacturers of AI-enabled security cameras, smart video surveillance and advanced edge devices that capture and store video at higher bit rates than mainstream cameras.
According to IHS Markit, global shipments of professional video surveillance cameras are expected to grow from 127 million to over 200 million between 2017 and 2022, and those with on-board storage are expected to grow by an average of approximately 19 percent per year1.
With the migration to 4K and higher video resolutions, and the introduction of more smart cameras with built-in AI and improved local processing capabilities, surveillance cameras need to be able to store both video and raw data to facilitate these AI capabilities. As a result, storage with higher capacity, more intelligence and greater durability is increasingly required.Add a comment
