vinpower iXcharger computexVinpower, Inc., through a strategic alliance with Phihong Technology and Silanna Semiconductor, has developed the first universal charging cube, which offers the ability to charge the battery and provide extended memory for virtually all mobile smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers, called the iXCharger. The patented iXCharger is a compact 65W up to 1TB storage power charger, using a specialized third-generation semiconductor GaN technology and ACF controller to provide higher power density and ensure fast heat dissipation in a smaller package, to enable fast, secure, and more efficient charging for mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. However, the iXCharger offers more than superior charging capabilities, it also utilizes an added large-capacity storage component that creates a 2-in-1 solution for both charging and storage. Those that use Apple iOS devices, the iXCharger has a free APP that provides automatic photo, video, and contact backup for iPhones and iPads each time they are plugged into the iXCharger. Instead of having to use both an external hard drive and extra power adapter, the iXCharger creates a single entity that works across a broader set of platforms and devices than current technology offers.

“All of us are have become more dependent on our mobile devices for everything from business to entertainment. Therefore, we often have content spread across multiple devices without an easy way to consolidate or maintain it,” proclaims Calvin Chang, C.E.O. of Vinpower, Inc. “The iXCharger eliminates that problem by creating a single source that can function as a charger and external storage for nearly all portable electronics, ranging from Apple iOS to Android, as well as MAC and PC laptops.”

solidigm D5 P5430 ssd

Solidigm, a leading global provider of innovative NAND flash memory solutions, is expanding its D5 Product Series with the Solidigm™ D5-P5430, a new QLC solid-state storage drive (SSD) optimized for mainstream and read-intensive workloads.

With most of today’s enterprise applications read-dominant, the D5-P5430 — a 4th gen SSD — offers substantial storage density and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) opportunities while delivering read performance that is equivalent to the most widely-adopted TLC SSDs.

The D5-P5430 is optimized for mainstream workloads (e.g., email/unified communications, decision support systems, object storage, and virtual desktop infrastructure) and read-intensive workloads (e.g., content delivery networks, data lakes/pipelines, video-on-demand). These workloads are typically 80% reads or higher and need to move massive amounts of data at high throughput.

As a drop-in replacement for TLC NAND-based PCIe-based SSDs, the D5-P5430 can reduce TCO by up to 27% for a typical object storage solution with a 1.5X increase in storage density and 18% lower energy cost. In addition, Solidigm’s newest drive can deliver up to 14% higher lifetime writes vs. leading TLC SSDs.
