Transcend Introduces New Line of 3D TLC NAND SSDs
Ron Perillo / 2 years ago
Transcend Information Inc is announcing a new line of industrial SSDs in 2.5-inch and M.2 form factors featuring 3D TLC NAND. 3D TLC NAND flash memory offers superior performance over planar 2D MLC NAND, while providing an excellent price-performance ratio.
This all-new series of SSDs uses high-quality 3D TLC NAND flash memory. 3D NAND flash breaks through physical limitations on Planar NAND by stacking layers of memory cells to allow for greater capacities and performance. Compared to Planar NAND, 3D NAND is faster, more reliable, and delivers greater performance. Devices manufactured with 3D NAND are price competitive, making them an excellent choice for embedded systems.
These new 3D TLC SSDs are covered with a 3-year warranty and come packed with exclusive technologies for performance and protection, including SLC caching to greatly enhance write performance and product longevity; a RAID engine to increase stability and protect data; and low-density parity check (LDPC) code to automatically correct errors.
Transcend SSD Scope Pro Software
Each drive also comes with additional support via the proprietary SSD Scope Pro software. It is a user-friendly application suite that monitors device health, and helps SSDs run more efficiently. It can view drive informtion, view S.M.A.R.T. status, run diagnostic scans and indicate drive health. The SSD Scope Pro can even do Secure Erase, has a built-in firmware update function and has system cloning tools. Best of all, it is free with every Transcend drive purchase.
