In today's world, the security of your confidential data is of the utmost importance. Imagine losing your personal files or highly confidential information from work and knowing that anyone can access the data because it was saved on a standard unencrypted storage device. To prevent this from happening, Verbatim has launched two military-grade hardware encrypted storage devices – the Store‘n’Go Secure Portable HDD (1TB) and the Store‘n’Go Secure Portable SSD (256GB).
Using AES 256-bit hardware encryption, the Verbatim drives mandatorily encrypt all the files loaded onto the drives in real time. With a built-in keypad for PIN code input, the drives do not store passcodes in the system's volatile memory making them far more secure than drives using software encryption.Add a comment

ATP Electronics, a leading manufacturer of high-performance industrial memory and storage solutions, spearheads the implementation of industrial temperature (iTemp) support on its latest NVMe M.2 solid state drive modules. The new SSD modules support a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C to capably address the power and heat issues common in fanless embedded systems as well as extreme temperature variations in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications, enabling them to perform reliably in harsh environments.
When operating at high speeds in high-throughput scenarios, onboard thermal sensors can detect abnormal temperature elevation and automatically enable a mechanism that adjusts performance to cool the system. According to Peter Huang, ATP Head of Embedded Solid State Drive Business Unit, “ATP Dynamic Thermal Throttling intelligently regulates speed and power to reduce heat without aggressive declines in performance, unlike other thermal solutions that cause abrupt drops and thus compromise stability.” Additionally, the low typical power consumption of 3.3V makes ATP's NVMe M.2 SSDs energy efficient, translating to longer drive usage and cost savings.
ATP's iTemp NVMe M.2 2280 SSD modules take advantage of the PCIe® Generation 3.0 x4 lane high-speed interface, delivering a bandwidth of up to 32 Gb/s (8 Gb/s per lane), which is four to six times the data transfer speed of previous-generation AHCI protocol on Serial ATA drives. Up to three times lower latency, sequential read-write speeds of up to 2,540/1,100 MB/s and random read IOPS (input/output per second) of 100,000, ensure fast and dependable performance to meet the data-intensive needs of industrial and mission-critical applications such as surveillance, medical imaging, and many network storage systems with fast caching requirements.Add a comment
Verbatim has launched the Vx500 External SSD with high speed flash memory and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 controller, optimised to provide unparalleled performance.
Storing, moving and backing up large amounts of digital data can be time consuming and hard work. With transfer speeds of up to 500 MB/s even high resolution video files can be moved in seconds. The Vx500’s enhanced performance can also make it ideal for running virtual machines on your computer.
Made from space grey aluminium and weighing just 29 grams, the Vx500 External SSD has a very sleek and sophisticated look and feel. Although small in physical size, it has some serious storage space – available in capacities of up to 480GB, it is the perfect accessory for Ultrabook’s with limited on-board storage.Add a comment
Transcend Information, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial-grade products, is proud to announce the release of 2.5-inch and M.2 form factor industrial solid-state drives featuring 3D TLC NAND flash memory. 3D TLC NAND flash memory has performance that can rival Planar (2D) MLC NAND flash, but at a very competitive price point. The new line of industrial SSDs also boast SLC caching, a RAID engine, low-density parity check (LDPC), and other features that make for a stable, long-lasting product ready for write-intensive industrial and embedded applications.
Built with high-quality 3D TLC NAND flash memory
This all-new series of SSDs uses high-quality 3D TLC NAND flash memory. 3D NAND flash breaks through physical limitations on Planar NAND by stacking layers of memory cells to allow for greater capacities and performance. Compared to Planar NAND, 3D NAND is faster, more reliable, and delivers greater performance. Devices manufactured with 3D NAND are price competitive, making them an excellent choice for embedded systems.
Transcend’s 3D TLC SSDs come packed with exclusive technologies for performance and protection, including SLC caching to greatly enhance write performance and product longevity; a RAID engine to increase stability and protect data; and low-density parity check (LDPC) code to automatically correct errors.
ADATA Technology Co., Ltd., a world leading memory brand, is proud to present the ED600 external hard drive enclosure, which offers users the convenience of portable external storage coupled with the speed and performance of solid state drives (SSDs).
