Transcend launches new mSATA and Half-slim SATA SSDs for industrial and embedded applications
Transcend today announced the addition of the MSA740 and MSA630 mSATA, and the HSD630 half-slim SATA solid state drives (SSD) to its industrial product line. Transcend’s MSA740 mSATA SSD combines the next-generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, and a powerful controller to attain sequential read and write speeds of up to 520 and 270 MB/s respectively, in addition to 4k random read/write speeds of up to 70,000 IOPS. Fully compatible with the SATA II 3Gb/s standard and boasting 64MB DRAM cache, the MSA630 mSATA and HSD630 half-slim SATA SSDs support sequential read and write speeds up to 260 and 80 MB/s respectively.
Despite measuring just 29.85 x 50.8 x 4 mm, the MSA740 comes equipped with advanced features. Ideal for embedded applications with strict space constraints, the small footprint MSA630 and HSD630 are designed to provide the same balanced features and performance as 2.5″ form factor hard disk drives in a fraction of the size. Transcend’s SATA III 6Gb/s MSA740 mSATA SSDs are offered in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities, while the SATA II 3Gb/s MSA630 and HSD630 SSDs are available in 32GB and 64GB capacities.
