SMART Modular Announces M.2 SATA with SafeDATA

/ 6 years ago


SMART Modular Technologies announced its new M.2 SATA XR+ product family equipped with SafeDATA power loss protection technology. These new SATA3 solid state drives (SSDs) are optimized specifically for high-reliability in networking, telecom and industrial applications and will be available in sizes from 32GB to 512GB.

The standard sized 2280 modules offer the normal SMART, NCQ as well as the SafeDATA technology which combines unique power loss detection and hold-up circuitries with an advanced controller firmware algorithm to flush in-flight data from volatile cache to NAND Flash memory in order to safeguard data against corruption and/or loss during an SPL event. Speeds are rated up to 540MB/s sequential read and 320MB/s while writing.

“SafeDATA technology addresses a growing need in applications where every piece of data is crucial and data loss cannot be allowed,” said Mike McClimans, Sr. Director of SMART’s Flash Product Line. “SMART is proud to introduce a line of M.2 SATA products designed for the specific needs of our OEM customers. In choosing SMART’s M.2 SATA XR+ product with SafeDATA technology, customers can rest assured that their data is safe in mission critical applications.”

The new M.2 SATA XR+ series is available for customer sampling now while volume production is set for Q1 2015. SMART Modular Technologies will also be showcasing this new SSD at Electronica 2014 in Munich this week.
