SST Announces New High-Endurance, Industrial-Grade NANDrive


Ruggedized 512 MByte, 1 GByte and 2 GByte NANDrive Devices Bring Performance and Reliability to Industrial, Medical and Automotive Applications
SST (Silicon Storage Technology, Inc., NASDAQ: SSTI), a leader in flash memory technology, today announced three new additions to its NANDrive family of ATA solid-state storage devices. The new 512 MByte, 1 GByte and 2 GByte NANDrive products are capable of operating at industrial temperature ranges, making them compelling storage options for industrial applications operating in harsh environments, including medical equipment, factory automation and in-cabin automotive electronics. SST NANDrive is a high-performance, high-endurance, fully integrated embedded flash solid-state drive that provides a total solution well suited for data storage in embedded or portable applications. At a mere 12mm x 24mm x 1.4mm, NANDrive is one of the industryís smallest ATA solid-state drives. More information on the SST industrial-grade NANDrive devices will be available at SSTís booth, Hall 12.0, Stand 12-245, at the Embedded World 2008 Exhibition and Conference taking place this week at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center in Nuremberg, Germany.

The new NANDrive devices are rated for operation at temperatures between -40 and +85 degrees Celsius. This temperature rating, combined with the devicesí use of single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash and the inherent ruggedness of solid-state drives, makes these new NANDrive devices an ideal fit for use in applications that require a long operating life and high reliability under extreme physical conditions.

ďDesigners creating products for industrial and automotive markets have been looking for storage options beyond traditional magnetic hard disk drives, which typically donít perform well in stressful physical conditions,Ē said Frank Lin, vice president, Product Marketing and New Product Development, SST. ďOur new industrial-grade NANDrive devices were developed to give embedded designers a high-capacity solid-state storage solution with low power consumption and a small form factor that can withstand the temperature extremes and high-impact conditions typical of industrial and automotive applications.Ē
