Swissbit’s 3D-NAND-SSD Suits Industrial Applications

July 22, 2019 Alix Paultre

Swissbit introduced a family of 3D-NAND-SSD products optimized for demanding industrial- and NetCom applications, with product versions with 2.5-inch housing, and m.2-, SlimSATA- and mSATA-modules. Using Toshiba BiCS3 NAND specified and pretested from -40 and 85°C, the industrial SATA-6-Gb/s-SSDs have Flash controllers that support a 165-bit-LDPC error correction.

The 2.5-inch SSDs from the X-75 family will be available from 60GB to 2TB in both commercial and industrial temperature grades, with a direct TLC write mode without SLC cache, which reduces Write Amplification Factor (WAF) and maintains a high sustained write data rate. The firmware achieves maximum endurance out of the 3000 P/E cycles specified for the 3D-NAND components.

The use of SLC-Cache for the 60 and 120 GB X-75-drives further improves top performance. Data Care Management with background scan, Near Miss ECC, and complete protection of internal data paths (E2E DPP - End-to-End Data Path Protection) offers additional safety against data loss. The firmware applies an efficient Block RAID for all drives, which allows recovery of full page fails.
