PATA NANDrive™ embedded SSDs
The award-winning family of embedded solid state drives (SSDs) integrate Greenliant’s industrial grade ATA controller with one or more NAND flash die in a small, multi-chip package. With its ease-of-use and widely adopted industry-standard ATA/IDE interface, PATA NANDrive revolutionized the way embedded system designers utilize NAND flash devices.
PATA NANDrive is an ideal replacement for high-density parallel NOR flash, CompactFlash card and PATA HDD designs that require smaller, higher security and more reliable data storage. It also can be seamlessly integrated in systems that do not have an ATA interface by connecting the device to a standard memory bus.
Offered in a 12mm x 24mm and 14mm x 24mm ball grid array (BGA) package, PATA NANDrive devices enable more compact systems that require reliable and secure data storage. The devices have the same 91-ball footprint with 1mm ball pitch across all capacities for backward compatibility, and are available in commercial and industrial temperatures.
Industrial temperature (-40 to +85 degrees Celsius) PATA NANDrive is offered with 2-bits-per-cell (MLC) or 1-bit-per-cell (SLC) NAND to meet varying customer requirements for lifespan, endurance and performance. Greenliant’s SLC NAND-based, industrial grade NANDrive products offer more than 10x longer write endurance compared to typical MLC NAND SSDs and are qualified for the most demanding applications.
NANDrive eliminates the need for long qualification cycles when there is a change of NAND flash technology; customers need only qualify the NANDrive as a mass storage subsystem.
The integrated NAND flash controller with built-in advanced NAND management firmware communicates with the host through the standard ATA protocol. It does not require any additional or proprietary software such as the Flash File System (FFS) and Memory Technology Driver (MTD).
NANDrive’s advanced NAND management technology enhances data security, improves endurance and accurately tracks the usage of the NAND flash. This innovative technology combines robust error correction capabilities with advanced wear-leveling algorithms and bad block management to extend the life of the product.
The enhanced features and small form factor of NANDrive give ultimate flexibility for data storage design—no extra connectors are needed. NANDrive is ideal for embedded applications that require secure, reliable and energy-efficient data storage.
GLS85LD/LP PATA NANDrive products are available from 512 MByte to 32 GByte.
