MEMXPRO: PCIe PT33 SSD series to upgrade industrial control systems
MEMXPRO announces availability of its new PT33 SSD series: U.2 PCIe SSD and M.2 2280 PCIe SSD. PT33 series is paired with the latest NVMe 1.3 protocol and uses original quality 3D TLC flash with 10K endurance and longevity support. U.2 PCIe and M.2 2280 PCIe SSDs are up to 3 times faster than SATA SSDs. End-to-end Data Path Protection is used to ensure the integrity of every bit of data as it is transmitted between the host and SSD, and between buffer memories and NAND flash. Enterprise-class reliability and write endurance should also be improved due to the inclusion of the advanced ECC engine. In addition to network communications and server applications, PT33 series is the ideal solution for upgrading and migrating SATA-based systems to better performing PCIe SSDs for the next generation of industrial systems like in-vehicle surveillance, edge devices, and smart platform upgrades. With full channels, the read/write speed of MEMXPRO M.2 280 PCIe and U.2 PCIe are up to 2100/1500MB/s. When booting, downloading software, or transferring large files, the new PCIe SSDs accomplish data transmission quickly and effectively.
Compared to traditional HDD, SSDs come in a variety of product design types and interfaces. MEMXPRO M.2 2280 PCIe and U.2 PCIe PT33 series employ the popular M.2 and U.2 interfaces supporting NVMe 1.3 standard with PCIe 3.0x4 channels. The advantage of M.2 is its compact size, light weight, outstanding performance, commonality, and proliferation; ideal for using in space-conscious server chassis and as industrial control platforms that need more computing and storage resources. The 2.5-inch U.2 PCIe SSD has the performance you would expect from an NVMe device and many servers and storage equipment makers have started to include one or more U.2 slots. U.2 PCIe 2.5” SSDs are able to be installed in drive bays on the front of the host for simple maintenance and do not require any motherboard space. They can be stacked in rows or vertically mounted in one or two drive banks to deliver higher capacity in networking enclosures.
MEMXPRO M.2 280 PCIe and U.2 PCIe PT33 series are equipped with original quality flash chips with 10K endurance and up to 2TB of storage capacity. Advanced PCIe controllers support 3D TLC NAND and with the latest full end-to-end path protection, no error data will be sent to the host. Built-in LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) ECC engine with RAID and SRAM ECC upgrades increase data write stability and product durability, satisfying the requirements of various industrial and embedded applications.
M.2 2280 PCIe and U.2 series can be supervised through MEMXPRO’s mSMART intelligent device monitoring toolbox for disk health status, temperature, lifespan, and read/write speed. For industrial operation, MEMXPRO mSMART 4.0 provides real-time information about when abnormal conditions occur. When it detects high risk conditions, warning notices are given out to remind operators to take preventative action and reduce the maintenance burden and enhancing operational efficiency.
