Transcend recently announced the release of its latest industrial solid-state drive, the MSATA450T mSATA SSD with 3D TLC NAND flash memory. The MSA450T comes with DDR3 DRAM cache, low-density parity check (LDPC), and other features that make for a stable, long-lasting product ready for write-intensive industrial and embedded applications.
High-Quality 3D TLC NAND Flash Offers Better Performance and Write Endurance
3D TLC NAND flash are known for its better write endurance and performance that can rival Planar (2D) MLC NAND flash, but at a very competitive price point. Not only the higher capacities can be achieved in a smaller physical space with 3D TLC NAND, the write endurance and write performance are greatly improved as well.
The MSA450T features 3D TLC NAND which offers higher write performance of up to 400MB/s, as compared to 160MB/s on the MSA370 which comes with 2D MLC NAND.
Exclusive Technology for Enhanced Performance and Reliability
The MSA450T comes with DDR3 DRAM cache to boost its write performance. The cache acts as a buffer, which helps to increase the drive performance by dedicating fast NAND to read/write cycle.
An advanced low-density parity check (LDPC) error correction code is also featured on the MSA450T to automatically correct errors during operation to ensure data integrity and drive longevity. With more bits which are corrected during operation, the usable life of a flash is greatly increases.
