mSATA ArmourDrive™ removable SSDs
The mSATA ArmourDrive™ solid state drive (SSD) family builds on Greenliant’s strong expertise in designing high-reliability, small form factor storage products. mSATA ArmourDrive is based on Greenliant’s industrial temperature SATA NANDrive™ combined with robust power interrupt data protection. Dedicated power failure detection and backup power circuitry is built-in to prevent data integrity issues and unrecoverable flash file system corruption.
A removable SSD, mSATA ArmourDrive surpasses SATA hard disk drives with its superior functionality, performance and reliability. It includes advanced security features for storing confidential information, providing an extra level of data protection.
Addressing the needs of space-constrained embedded systems, mSATA ArmourDrive measures 29.85mm x 50.80mm x 4.80mm (JEDEC MO-300). Operating at extreme temperatures between -40 and +85 degrees Celsius, mSATA ArmourDrive is ideal for applications requiring removable data storage able to withstand the most demanding environments.
Industrial temperature (-40 to +85 degrees Celsius) mSATA ArmourDrive 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 ArmourDrive products offer more than 10x longer write endurance compared to typical MLC NAND SSDs and are qualified for the most demanding applications.
The integrated NAND flash controller with built-in advanced NAND management firmware communicates with the host through the standard SATA protocol. It does not require any additional or proprietary software such as the Flash File System (FFS) and Memory Technology Driver (MTD).
mSATA ArmourDrive’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 mSATA ArmourDrive give industrial, computing, and networking customers added flexibility for data storage design.
GLS86 mSATA ArmourDrive products are available from 8 GByte to 64 GByte (128 GByte, 256 GByte, 512 GByte and 1 TByte planned).
