Greenliant Ships Industry's First Industrial-Grade 8 GB Embedded Solid State Drive
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – January 19, 2011 – Greenliant Systems, a leader in energy-efficient, highly secure and reliable solid state storage products, has started mass production of its industrial-grade 8 GB NANDrive™ with ATA/IDE interface. The addition of Greenliant's GLS85LP1008P solid state drive (SSD) marks the widest range of capacities—512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB—of small form factor, embedded SSDs that can withstand the extreme environments of automotive and industrial applications.
The GLS85LP1008P NANDrive combines Greenliant's high-performance NAND controller with 8 GB of single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash die in a tiny 14mm x 24mm x 1.9mm package. The 91 ball grid array (BGA), 1mm ball pitch package gives customers an embedded SSD that is easy, space-saving and cost-effective for mounting to a system motherboard.
"Greenliant NANDrive devices have the same footprint across all capacities, which allows our customers to seamlessly add more storage when they need it," said Nobu Higuchi, vice president of application engineering and product marketing, Greenliant. "Our 8 GB I-grade NANDrive is a high-capacity SSD in a very small size. Combined with its advanced security features, the I-grade NANDrive protects customer data in applications that require long operating life and durability."
The GLS85LP1008P NANDrive has a 50 MByte/sec sustained Read speed and a 39 MByte/sec sustained Write speed, while staying energy-efficient with typical active-mode power consumption as low as 500mW. Its enhanced reliability features include data loss prevention during unexpected power interruptions and product endurance up to 100 million host-write cycles.
About Greenliant NANDrive Devices
The Greenliant NANDrive family manages all NAND flash complexities and allows embedded system designers to quickly integrate mass data storage solutions into their designs without having to make any firmware changes. Because NANDrive complies with ATA interface protocols supported by all standard embedded operating systems, designers no longer face the risk of host software revalidation cycles. To further ease integration and reduce inventory management, NANDrive solves the compatibility and obsolescence issues of pairing a NAND controller with new NAND flash devices. As an integrated multi-chip package solution, NANDrive eliminates the need for long qualification cycles when there is a change of NAND flash technology; customers need only qualify the NANDrive as a mass storage subsystem.
