TDK launches SHG4A series of half slim type SSD modules for industrial applications
TDK announced today the launch of SHG4A series of half slim type solid state drive (SSD) modules for industrial applications. The new NAND flash memory modules support the serial ATA II standard and enable storage capacities of up to 128 GB with SLC type NAND flash memory. Measuring only approx. 54 x 40 mm, the modules are about one half the size of a 1.8-inch hard disk drive (HDD). The SHG4A series of half slim type industrial SSDs employs the standard SATA connector also used for 2.5 inch type SSDs, which eliminates the need for a special connector at the customer’s host side. The GBDriver power interruption tolerance algorithm makes this compact SATA flash drive resistant against power supply problems, a highly desirable characteristic for demanding industrial applications.
Data security has been further enhanced by the addition of AES 128-bit encryption and a TDK proprietary security function to the standard ATA security complement. The SHG4A series of half slim type industrial SSDs are SATA flash memory drives ideally suited for use as replacements for hard disk drives in industrial equipment and embedded devices. They provide excellent performance in all vital aspects, including high-speed performance, data reliability, long storage lifespan, and data security.
