As a leading manufacturer of embedded memory products, Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend) provides high-value storage products for industrial applications. The firm recently released DRAM-less 96-layer 3D NAND SSDs in 2.5” and M.2 form factors with NVMe PCIe and SATA III interfaces, catering to increasing demand for smart edge applications. Capable of operating under harsh conditions, this economical storage solution helps companies upgrade their hardware and remain highly competitive even without DRAM, allowing them to quickly deploy edge storage devices in the AIoT era.

Transcend DRAMless SSDs

Transcend’s DRAM-less SSDs leverage Dynamic SLC Cache technology that improves 3D NAND speeds to the level found with SLC. Without DRAM attached, the drives still perform stunningly well. DRAM-less SSDs feature low power consumption and low cost per unit, making this solution more economical and affordable for enterprises. Another highlight is high data integrity. During a sudden power outage or unstable power supply, DRAM-less SSDs will preserve crucial business data. In addition, the Dynamic Thermal Throttling mechanism keeps drive temperature well within parameters even after long hours of operation. This lowers the risk of data corruption or system downtime caused by overheating. For AIoT, embedded medical systems, and IoV, Transcend’s DRAM-less SSD solution is another attractive option for industries to realize high performance and stability at an affordable price.
