Innodisk's Latest SSD Hits the Sweet Spot

The New iSLC 3IE4 SSD Brings Cost-efficiency and High-Performance to the Industrial Market

April 5, 2017 – Taipei, Taiwan – To meet the ever growing demands of the embedded and market, Innodisk is launching the 3IE4 series with integrated Marvell controllers. Running on Innodisk’s proprietary iSLC technology, it provides performance equal to that of SLC at a much lower cost. The iSLC technology in combination with integrated LDPC error correcting code ensures an extended lifespan; upward to seven times that of standard MLC products.

Traditional MLC flash boasts high capacity, but often falls short with regards to product lifespan. SLC is a better choice for performance and longevity; however the cost is comparatively high. This is where iSLC comes in as a golden mean with a drastic increase in lifespan compared to MLC products, while sporting SLC like performance at a much lower price. This makes iSLC SSDs the perfect choice for industrial and embedded applications where MLC often do not meet longevity demands and SLC are seen as too costly.

The in-house designed technology behind iSLC is simple, but ingenious. MLC cells which typically hold two bits are made to hold just one instead – effectively emulating SLC cells. With this is place, not only is lifespan increased, but write speed reaches SLC levels.

Integrated thermal sensor technology enables stable operation even in extreme temperatures, which along with advanced power management further bolsters performance and reliability. Innodisk’s own iData Guard technology smartly integrates with firmware to ensure data integrity in the event of a sudden power outage.

Product features:

• iSLC – increased performance and longevity

• LDPC ECC – extended product lifetime

• High IOPS – faster performance

• DRAM-less – increased data integrity

• Supports S.M.A.R.T, TRIM, NCQ, and iData Guard
