Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a leading manufacturer of embedded memory products, recently announced the new MTE720T PCIe Gen 4x4 M.2 solid-state drive (SSD), boasting an increased sequential R/W up to 7,200MB/s and 6,500MB/s and a trusted endurance up to 3K P/E cycles. This launch is expected to empower data-intensive applications like 5G communication, edge computing, and AIoT with low latency and high reliability.
Compliant with NVMe 1.4 specifications, Transcend’s MTE720T features an 8-channel controller. Its built-in DRAM improves random speeds by shortening data access time while extending SSD life by reducing the times NAND flash is written. In response to the demanding environments of industrial applications, Transcend has made use of anti-sulfur resistors, Corner Bond, and 30µ” gold finger PCBs to protect drive components from external shock, vibration, and pollution. The MTE720T can operate in an extended temperature range(-20°C~75°C) in order to adapt to rapid thermal changes and extreme temperatures.Add a comment
Kioxia Corporation, a world leader in memory solutions, today announced the industry's first 2 terabyte (TB) microSDXC memory card working prototypes. Using its innovative BiCS FLASH 3D flash memory and an in-house designed controller, basic functions of the KIOXIA 2TB microSDXC UHS-I memory card working prototypes were confirmed in the microSDXC standard’s maximum density.
As the data recording capacity of smartphones, action cameras, and portable game consoles continues to increase, the need for ultra-high capacity SD memory cards to store all of this data has never been higher. The SD Association’s SDXC specification has supported memory cards up to 2TB for more than a decade – but 2TB cards have not been successfully manufactured until now.
Designed using the company’s proprietary manufacturing technology, the KIOXIA 2TB card working prototypes are built by stacking sixteen 1 terabit dies of 3D flash memory and achieve a maximum thickness of 0.8 mm at the die mounting area – making them well-suited to high-capacity data recording applications.Add a comment
MSI, the world's leading gaming PC hardware brand, is proud to announce the new SPATIUM M570 PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 HS, with blazing fast read speeds up to 10GB/s that unites the latest in top-notch PCIe Gen 5 controller technology with high-quality 3D NAND flash, and advanced cooling. Sporting a bronze-colored aluminum heatsink, the SPATIUM M570 PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 HS SSD takes a sensational leap in storage performance, bringing more than 1.5 times faster read/write speeds compared to current PCIe 4.0 SSDs.

“K.S.Pua, CEO of Phison Electronics, said that the cooperation between Phison and MSI started from the SSD product line. Since both companies have their own expertise in NAND controller and computer system integration respectively, and in addition to SSD, MSI has also actively expanded its strategy in the fields of gaming, content creators, commercial, industrial, robotics, and even automotive in recent years, where the application markets are in line with Phison's long-term strategy, so the two companies hit it off. The SPATIUM PCIe 5.0 SSD launched by MSI this time adopted Phison's E26 SSD controller. Since the performance of PCIe 5.0 is much faster than the previous generation of PCIe 4.0, the two companies have conducted a lot of tests and discussions on power consumption and heat dissipation, which is a valuable cooperation experience. In the future, Phison will continue to support MSI through controller technology.”Add a comment

KIOXIA America, Inc. has introduced new Industrial Grade flash memory devices. This new lineup utilizes the latest generation KIOXIA BiCS FLASH™ 3D flash memory with 3-bit-per-cell (triple-level cell, TLC) technology, and is available in a 132-BGA package. Densities range from 512 gigabits (64 gigabytes) to 4 terabits (512 gigabytes) to support the unique requirements of industrial applications – including telecommunication, networking, embedded computing and much more.
The storage requirements for many industrial applications stand in stark contrast to those of SSDs designed to be housed in climate-controlled data centers – including the need for extended temperature ranges and the ability to maintain high reliability and performance in rugged operating conditions. Designed with these needs in mind, the new KIOXIA devices support a wide temperature range (-40°C to +85°C) and offer suitable products for the industrial market.
Due to the fact that flash memory cell performance and reliability improve with a smaller number of bits per cell, the new KIOXIA devices feature 1-bit-per-cell (single-level cell, SLC) mode for applications that require faster read/write times and high cell endurance.Add a comment
