Apacer launches next-gen SDM4 Middle Profile wide-temp modular SSDs
With many years of experience in the industrial SSD sector, Apacer has been a customized product manufacturer trusted by industrial computer and server corporations in the U.S. and Japan for a long time. To provide customers with a more diverse product range, Apacer has revealed three models of the new-generation of modular SATA SSDs; the SDM4 MP (SATA Disk Module, Middle Profile), with 7-pin SATA connectors available in three orientations of 90°, 180° and 270°, along with a patented built-in power supply design. These are designed to meet user-specific needs for various form factors and industrial designs.
Compared to that of its predecessor, the reading speed of these next-generation SSDs has been boosted to 85MB/sec. In terms of the chip, in addition to SLC storage solutions, MLC chip product lines can also support operating at industry-level extended-temperatures (-40°C ~ 85°C), and are especially suitable for stable operation under rigorous industrial environments.
For safer data storage, the value-added SDM4 MP industrial SSD series boast advanced Write Protect function, which protects data against vicious tampering so as to achieve security control of data storage. Currently, the Write Protect Switch is set on the top of the unit. Apacer can also add the Write Protect Switch to the bottom to meet the customization demands of customers. By utilizing unique Pin Header streaming, it allows the customer to unlock or lock this Write Protect function directly on the main unit without rebooting or adjusting manually. Additionally, the design of the pin header at the bottom enables the product to be more closely connected with the motherboard for effective shock resistance. At present, this product has attracted overseas POS applications, and Apacer is expected to provide storage solutions with outstanding performance.
Apacer’s latest SATA Disk Module 4 series uses SLC chips, available in capacities from 2GB to 32GB, and MLC chips for capacities from 4GB to 64GB. The SDM4 MP units feature ECC (Error Correcting Code) function, S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) and ATA Secure Erase command – all of which help boost the product’s reliability and stability. These features, along with the support of the Windows 7 Trim command for optimization, have made Apacer SSDs one of the prime choices among professional storage solutions.
