Apacer: cable-less power multi-PowerPath SSD

Apacer Technology has introduced its latest SATA Disk Module: the SDM7-M DP – a miniature MLC SSD which has won the 2017 Taiwan Excellence Award. Successfully combining rigid and flex boards, the SDM7-M DP is compact, thin and light, simplifying the system structure for design flexibility. Supporting SATA3 (6Gb/s), it can reach up to 525MB/s and 350MB/s in read/write speed, making it the fastest miniature module in the industry. With capacity up to 256GB and four-channel speed, the SDM7-M DP’s remarkably small size, high capacity and high read/write speed make it the perfect solution for a variety of applications, including embedded system, gaming system, blade server and 1U enterprise rack server system.

With innovative rigid-flex board design, the SDM7-M DP has a compact size that allows for not only flexible system integration but also improved signal transmission quality. Furthermore, by stacking two rigid boards with a flex board using a unique bend axis, and securing with screws, stability is achieved and shock-resistance is enhanced. To meet the stringent industrial-grade specifications and resist strong system vibration and falling impact, the new SDM7-M DP miniature SSD is designed with a unique hook that fits perfectly with the SATA slot on the motherboard, preventing cable from falling off or loosening due to impact or drop, satisfying system makers’ stringent requirement for high stability.

While traditional 7-pin miniature SSD require external power supply, Apacer’s patented plug-and-play Multi-PowerPath supplies power through two power connectors (7+2) on the side or the 7th pin, allowing the SSD to operate without external power supply, giving it the dual advantages of signal integrity and flexible configuration on the motherboard.

Meeting the high standard requirement of industrial-grade storage devices, Apacer’s innovative dual-PCB miniature SSD SDM7-M DP is equipped with many core technologies. It has thermal throttling technology to monitor temperature, which can trigger step-by-step decrease in performance when overheating occurs, ensuring product stability and smooth system operation. Furthermore, built into the SSD firmware is Apacer’s proprietary CoreAnalyzer software. It continuously gathers data on system access, categorizes and statistically interprets read and write actions, and then presents and analyzes through the software. The software allows customers to understand the operation of the application system, thus adjusting it to achieve optimized SSD performance and lifespan. Multi-PowerPath series SDM is also available in two other options widely adopted for gaming and server applications, i.e. the SDM5A-M 7P 180D LP5(H) and Slim3(H) SSD in 32/64GB capacities.
