Industrial SATA II solid state drive supports up to 260MB/s data rate

With the Industrial SATA II SSD (solid state drive) of the X‑500 Series, Swissbit AG is extending its industrial 2.5" SSD product line.

The storage solution achieves a data rate on SATA II of up to 260MB/s and an impressive 15,000 IOPS with 4k random accesses. Added to this are such features as NCQ, TRIM, the ATA security set and in-field update. To ensure the absolute reliability of the power fail protected X‑500 Series, Swissbit combines sophisticated mechanisms and augments these with the S.M.A.R.T. (self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology) protocol, the lifetime monitoring tool or SDK and an efficient BCH-ECC (error correction code) unit. The X-500 Series is available in storage densities from 16GB to 512 GB as SLC (single level cell) and in MLC (multi level cell) versions. For demanding applications, the SLC solution guarantees data preservation of ten years, the MLC version five years according to the JEDEC standard. The X-500 SSDs can be used in a temperature range from -40 to 85°C and afford a high level of shock and vibration resistance.
