Transcend's Industrial-Grade SuperMLC microSD Memory Cards Balances Performance, Endurance and Price

2016/05/03
Transcend Information, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial-grade flash and DRAM products, is proud to announce the release of its industrial-grade SuperMLC microSD cards. Positioned between its SLC and MLC NAND flash offerings, Transcend’s exclusive SuperMLC technology features a cost-effective solution that offers performance close to that of SLC NAND flash. The newly-released SuperMLC microSD cards boast high-performance, exceptional endurance, and wide temperature tolerance (-40°C to 85°C) at affordable prices, ideal for industrial applications such as medical devices, surveillance systems, and POS terminals.

Excellent Performance up to 95MB/s 
Combining the benefits of both Single-Level Cell (SLC) and Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash, Transcend has successfully developed SuperMLC technology by reprogramming the two bits per cell of MLC into one bit per cell, greatly boosting its performance. The transfer speed of Transcend’s new UHS-I Class 1 SuperMLC microSD cards can reach up to 95MB/s, double the speed of MLC flash chips. Although total capacity is reduced, SuperMLC offers a good balance for industrial applications that demand quality that is comparable to SLC NAND flash at a cost-effective price.

Exceptional Endurance and Reliability
With a wide operating temperature between -40°C and 85°C, Transcend’s SuperMLC microSD cards are fault-tolerant and offer exceptional endurance, delivering up to 30,000 P/E cycles*, ten times more durable than MLC NAND flash. In addition, the built-in Advanced Error Correcting Code (ECC) and S.M.A.R.T. function ensure reliable data transfer and self-monitoring capabilities that offer optimum protection, ideal for demanding industrial applications.

Warranty 
Transcend's SuperMLC microSD memory cards are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities, and are backed by Transcend's Two-year Limited Warranty.
