Next-Gen NAND Flash Flexes Industrial Muscle

According to Innodisk, 3D NAND is set to be the dominant NAND flash technology, providing both enhanced performance and capacity. The Innodisk 3D NAND solid state drive (SSD) series is designed to meet the stringent requirements for ruggedness and endurance seen in the embedded and industrial markets.


The series uses industrial-grade Toshiba 3D TLC NAND flash with a rated P/E cycle number of 3,000, ensuring solid longevity, while the fin-house designed firmware is geared towards industrial usage. The SSDs use direct write and avoids using SLC cache that eventually causes performance drops and bloated P/E cycle numbers. Also, the firmware can be customized to suit special requirements.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.


The series includes two lines: the DRAM-less 3TE7 and the 3TG6-P with integrated DRAM using a Marvell controller. The product lines are available in capacities up to 1T B and 2 TB respectively. They can both integrate the company’s trio of power stabilizing technologies, iCell, iPower Guard, and iData Guard, to strengthen data integrity in areas susceptible to power fluctuations.


The 3D NAND SSDs also use End-to-End Power Path Protection that ensures error correction at every data transfer point with the host and within the drives themselves. For more sensitive data, drives that employ AES encryption are available with in-house designed software. For more information, visit Innodisk.
