Transcend Launches New 3D NAND SSDs with Extended Temperature Tolerance, Scaling 3D NAND to Greater Durability

2020/07/09
Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend®), a leading manufacturer of embedded memory products, recently rolled out a new line of solid-state drives featuring the latest generation of 96-layer 3D NAND flash. The release features SSDs in the NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4, SATA III M.2, and mSATA form factors, and large capacity options from 64GB to 2TB. Besides sporting an endurance rating of 3K P/E cycles, these solutions boast appealing new features, such as default 30µ" PCB gold finger and Corner Bond technology - which shields key components against wear and external impact - an extended operating temperature range (-20°C ~ 75°C), and dynamic thermal throttling, allowing for greater durability. 

Fast and spacious
Transcend's MTE652T2 SSD features the PCIe Gen 3 x4 interface and NVMe performance, resulting in compelling transfer rates as high as 2,100 MB/s. It also features incredible 4K random performance of up to 235,000 IOPS, and comes in capacities up to 512GB. The MTS952T2 and MTS552T2 SSDs feature compact M.2 2280 and 2242 form factors, delivering incredible read speeds of up to 560MB/s and adding up to 2TB storage. The MSA452T2 mSATA SSD, meanwhile, provides amazing transfer speeds of up to 560 MB/s and spacious capacity of up to 1TB.

30µ" gold finger and Corner Bond for durability
Keeping pace with the latest NAND flash scaling trend, Transcend taps into triple-level NAND flash advancements, this time launching products featuring fortified durability on top of superior cost performance. The new SSDs are built with a 30µ” gold finger, a thick, solid electroplated hard gold plating that offers the PCB great conductivity and antioxidant capacity and protects components from abrasion and sulfuration. In addition, these SSDs come with default baked-in Corner Bond which fortifies key components and increases reliability under high thermal or vibratory stress, high gravitational acceleration, and high fatigue cycle applications.

Ruggedized to withstand temperature swings and tough environments
Featuring a wide range of operating temperature from -20°C to 75°C, the new 3D NAND SSDs are robust and resilient, ensuring reliable operation even under temperature swings and environmental stresses. These SSDs come equipped with Dynamic Thermal Throttling technology, allowing them to maintain stable performance by preventing overheating. Great tolerance to extreme temperatures makes these drives the ideal storage solution for industries where thermal challenges are a part of life. 

Transcend SSD Scope Pro Software
Transcend's SSD Scope Pro is a convenient software package that helps users monitor and manage SSD status via an intuitive interface. It offers various useful features, including drive information and S.M.A.R.T. status monitoring, diagnostic scan, secure erase, health indication, system clone, and remote monitoring. Embedded clients can monitor their SSDs in real time over the cloud-based SSD Control Center, receive notices, and run remote firmware upgrades to ensure the health of their SSDs, minimizing downtime.
