APRO is pleased to announce the latest High Random Performance MUSE-D MLC 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) to fulfill the demand of full-time high random read/write speeds for small files in industrial and embedded application.
APRO MUSE-D 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) uses Marvell controller and Toshiba Flash IC, providing the sequential read/write speeds up to 530MB/s and 210MB/s, and 4K random read/write speed up to 32K/30K IOPS. With the excellent high speeds, the SSD performs even faster on high-density application no matter full-time data recorder or other special boot operating system.
In order to solve the issue of NAND MLC storage lifespan, the firmware of MUSE-D 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) is designed with the following technologies.
LDPC ECC: The LDPC ECC (low-density parity check) technology, compared to the existing error correction code (ECC), LDPC has more excellent error correction capability for longer code lengths, and can greatly improve the scan cycle of flash memory. On the other hand, more errors can be corrected on each page to maintain a longer lifespan of the flash memory.
Power Loss Data Protection: In order to ensure that the last read/write command can be completed, the power loss data protection will immediately stop reading or writing command when it senses the unstable power or insufficient wattage. Therefore, the data can be safely and completely saved in the SSD. Once the power is restored, the system will move on with the process.
Static Wear Leveling: static wear leveling is used to prevent the updating static data from staying in the static area and makes blocks fully and evenly applied, then each block can have the same usability. The static data includes OS files, lookup table, running files, ... etc. Hence, APRO MUSE-D MLC 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) is the best and economical solution for system booting drive.
Garbage collection & TRIM: It has direct influence on performance and lifespan of SSD. The SSD must use garbage collection & TRIM to reduce the amount of garbage collected in order to decrease the time of wearing and maintain the lifespan.
S.M.A.R.T.: APRO MUSE-D MLC 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) supports S.M.A.R.T. command set (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology). The users will know the health condition of SSD from S.M.A.R.T.. It can not only predict the lifespan of SSD but collect the data to know the degree of SSD usage, letting users change the new product at the proper time without any doubt. Or, you can also provide the relevant data to APRO engineer to do the technical analysis, and APRO will offer the effective solution.
APRO MUSE-D MLC 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) is fully compliant with 2.5" SATA SSD form factor with 7-pin data and 15-pin power interface and 7mm height to meet the strict industrial standard. The SSD also conforms to the SATA 3.1 (6.0Gb/sec) specification with low power consumption and is the ideal option for industrial application, exactly compatible with 3.0Gb/s and 1.5Gb/s interface as well.
In addition, in order to ensure the quality, reliability and ability in different environment temperatures, APRO chooses strictly the specific components in order to conform to the standard of the industrial system. The MUSE-D MLC 2.5" SATA III SSD (7SF) is designed to be used not only in the general temperature 0°C ~ +70°C but also in wide temperature -40°C ~ +85°C. Moreover, APRO applies the conformal coating to the PCBA of SSD to consolidate the abilities of moisture prevention, dirt prevention, dust prevention and chemical pollution. The conformal coating can also avoid the corrosion from soldering and the contact between the conductor and the air, becoming an isolation and eliminating the electromagnetic interference. The capacities are available from 8GB to 256GB.
About 2.5" SATA SSD
2.5" SATA III SSD (Solid State Drive) is a high performance and high-reliability storage device based on NAND Flash technology. Compared to the traditional hard disk drive (HDD), the 2.5" SATA SSD doesn't have moving components, so it operates without vibration and noise. With the high read/write speed, vibration prevention, and shock resistance, the data is saved carefully and extend sequential operating time powered by batteries. The 2.5" SATA SSD is the ideal choice for industrial computer and embedded system.
