The SSDs use GBDriver GS2 and supports serial ATA that is equipped with 3D NAND (TLC or pSLC) flash memory for IIoT applications

As 3D flash memory technology advances, flash storage solutions with capacities over 1 TB are more widely used. However, with flash storage integrated into edge devices in industrial equipment and many IIoT devices, the demand has increased for highly reliable storage devices that also protect user data.

To solve this challenge, a new generation of flash storage products have been launched that are optimal for industrial, medical, smart grid, transportation and security applications. 

The storage series uses GBDriver GS2, a NAND flash memory control IC, which supports serial ATA. In addition to the auto-refresh and data recovery features, new ECC (LDPC) memory and strong RAID features significantly enhance data reliability. The lineup also provides a wide range of storage capacities from 16 GB to 1.6 TB.

An internal power backup protection circuit, with 2D MLC NAND flash memory and write protection with Unified Write Filter (UWF) for Windows 10 is also present. Power interruption tolerance is also enhanced with 3D TLC NAND flash memory.

The series offers strong security features, including a new firmware anti-tampering feature, anti-spoofing security feature, AES128/256-bit encryption and ATA security, to protect users against falsification and the data leakage from NAND flash memory.

Main applications

  • IoT devices such as information terminals and edge computing systems
  • Industrial computers, factory automation (FA) equipment, railway and transportation service equipment
  • Banking terminals, ticket-vending machines
  • Medical and data analysis equipment
  • Smart grid equipment
  • Security terminals and other security equipment

The products are now available from TDK Corporation.
