PNY announced today the launch of the LX2030 and LX3030 line of ultra high endurance SSDs to the company's assortment of solid state drives. The new LX families of SSDs offer ever higher levels of endurance designed for "proof of space and time" applications like Chia (XCH) Plotting.

Designed for Plotting
The PNY LX2030 and LX3030 M.2 NVMe SSDs are the ideal solution for "proof of space and time" applications like plotting Chia Coin. Unlike "proof of work" models like bitcoin which consume large amounts of power by requiring the miners to do complex mathematical calculations, "proof of space and time" applications utilize the unused space on a users' systems, making it a more energy efficient and environmentally conscious model. To secure the blockchain, the data needs to be first created in a process called "plotting", which is only required once per plot file. This process is write intensive, so a desirable SSD for plotting has high sustained write bandwidth and endurance (TBW, or terabytes written). Typically this level of write performance and endurance was only seen on enterprise class SSDs.

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a leading manufacturer of embedded memory products, recently released 96-layer 3D NAND SSDs with Intelligent Power Shield technology. This type of SSD ensures that data is securely saved during a sudden power outage, optimizing drive performance when system power is unstable. With a reliable SSD, corporates can accurately bring in data from end devices, further analyzing it for better business performance.

IPS: Patented Transcend technology
Transcend has deployed Intelligent Power Shield technology in its embedded SSDs. This technology employs a built-in voltage detector (VDT) that monitors the voltage level coming from the host. When the voltage dips too low, the polymer tantalum capacitors (PTCs) continue to provide power so that data can be flushed from the DRAM cache to the NAND flash memory, buying time for data to be written to the SSD correctly. This technology enhances the reliability of SSDs operating in a harsh environment, which is a must for smart manufacturing, smart monitoring, and smart retail industries where huge amounts of data are collected by intelligent applications.
