SSDs for industrial applications

Louise Smyth

ATP, the manufacturer of rugged SSDs and DRAM modules for the industrial markets, debuts its first NVMe-based M.2 2280 SSD offering twice the performance of SATA-based SSDs.

This newest generation SSD is designed to meet the storage demand of I/O intensive data processing and low latency requirement for industrial and mission critical applications, including surveillance, medical imaging, and many network- storage systems with fast caching requirement.

By adopting NVMe Rev.1.2 specifications and integrating the latest 3D NAND MLC technology, ATP’s M.2 2280 NVMe SSD is constructed via a PCIe Gen 3x4 bus interface offering from 128GB up to 1TB of memory capacity to boost its performance to exceed the previous bottleneck of AHCI standards, delivering Sequential Read up to 1,260 MB/s and Sequential Write up to 980 MB/s.

While other memory suppliers emphasise on configuring the performance attributes of an NVMe SSD, ATP takes a step further instead in carefully considering all aspects of enhancing memory longevity and reliability for mission critical environments.

This includes careful selection of BOM planning with key suppliers, and adding wide temperature and extreme power cycling testing.

Heat dissipation is another major issue commonly encountered for NVMe drives. Through temperature feedback and optimised thermal throttling mechanism, ATP’s NVMe SSD avoids drastic performance drop or possible damage to controller caused by overheating.

ATP's NVMe based M.2 2280 SSD provides performance specifically tailored for an array of applications such as server/networking, Surveillance, IoT, Medical Imaging, and many other mission critical applications.
