Solid State Drives

The SATA Solid State Disk is the next generation of storage device based on industrial flash memory technology, which emulates an ordinary magnetic hard disk.
Built for speed, these Solid State Storage Devices need no moving or spinning parts, and that makes no mechanical noise, suitable for used in portable or embedded system, which has only limited power consumption. The Flash Disk Drive products are also free from extra and special algorithm or some firmware driver. Just plug the unit into the SATA slots and operate it as same as a regular Hard Disk Drives.

xitradesata10000 These high-speed SSD units provide faster and higher performance storage solution for industrial application, embedded computing, high-speed networking, broadband communications, mobile computing, military, medical and aerospace.

In Addition of high-performance, the devices are capable of withstanding a higher dree of environmental distress, delivering extreme endurance.

The SSD have good performance, and have small latency time. It effectively reduces the booting time of operation system and the power consumption is less than hard disk drive (HDD).`

Because of the complete chip configuration, outside noise has no influence on NSSD. 3.12.3 Electromagnetic immunity
The recording medium of traditional HDD is magnetic material, and the head is sensitive to environmental magnetic field. However the NSSD’s recording medium is NAND Flash, which is a kind of semiconductor based on silicon. Go without saying, NSSD isn’t affected by electromagnetic field.

NSSD products have extensive applications. They can be used in some special environment such as zero gravity. Because the NSSD is made of full chip, the gravitation has no effect on it.

It’s well known that the reliability of a chip configuration is better than a mechanical configuration. Because the mechanical configuration is affected by too many factors, it influences the reliability of HDD very much. While the chip configuration is opposite, it makes that NSSD has a nice reliability.

Environmental protection
NSSD produces almost no quantity of heat and the noise is 0 dB when it is working. At the same time, the NSSD products and the enclosed components/devices and/or assemblies do not contain plumb. It has no influence on environment.
