Adlink Technology, Inc will present the Adlink ASD Series of industrial grade solid state drives (SSDs) at the Embedded Systems Conference Chicago from June 6 to 8, 2011, in Rosemont, IL. Adlink ASD SSDs provide a SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA III) interface to match the data transfer capabilities of 2nd generation Intel Core processor-based platforms and have fast read/write speeds.

Adlink industrial grade SSDs deliver low latency with less than 1ms access time, power consumption as low as 2 watts, and high capacity. The Adlink ASD Series is available in 2.5-in., 1.8-in. and Jedec MO297 (Half-Slim) form factors and is designed for use in enterprise, industrial and embedded computing platforms in fields such as defense, telecom, transportation, industrial automation and medical. It supports a wide operating temperature range from -40 °C to 85 °C and is resistant to high levels of shock (1,500G/0.5msec) and vibration 3.08G (7-800Hz). SSDs have no spin-up time, seek time or rotational latency. To provide additional reliability, Adlink ASD Series SSDs implement wear-leveling and hardware error-correcting code (ECC), resulting in years of operation with minimal maintenance and a mean time between failures (MTBF) of up to 2 million hours.

“Our customers depend on Adlink to provide a total solution in a ruggedized format that is able to operate under the most demanding environmental conditions," stated Stephen Huang, Vice President of the Industrial Computing Product Segment of Adlink. "The Adlink industrial grade ASD SSD Series provides customers with the high data transfer rates of the SATA 6 Gb/s interface, high reliability and long product life in an industrial grade storage solution. With these advanced features and leading NAND flash controller technology, Adlink continues to provide customers with high quality solutions and reliable product support. Our new line of industrial grade SSDs meets the requirements of transportation, avionics, factory floor, and other rugged applications with extended temperature requirements.”

Built using high speed SLC/MLC NAND flash with Toggle-Mode and advanced controller technology, the Adlink ASD Series offers high speed performance of up to 470MB/sec sequential read and 385MB/sec sequential write speed (2.5-in. 128 GB SLC). With no moving parts, ASD SSDs are designed to deliver the durability required by portable devices that are frequently dropped or jostled. In addition to the 2.5-in. form factor, the Adlink ASD Series offers models in 1.8-in. form factor with Micro SATA connector and in Half-Slim form factor to provide design flexibility for customers seeking to create next generation ultra-thin rugged devices based on the standard SATA interface. For smoother integration of embedded platforms, the Adlink ASD Series is compatible with the latest Intel-based platforms.
