Samples of the 2.5-inch SATA flash driveFiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 are now available from InnoDisk Corp. Featuring tough outer metal case, the solid-state drive is the highest capacity SLC NAND flash drive at 128Gbyte, claims the company. The FiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 delivers read and write rates up to 110Mbps and 90Mbps, burst read rates up to 300Mbps and supports Serial ATA 2.0-3Gbps a standard. With InnoDisk advanced flash management technology, the FiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 offers a random read and write rate of over 9500 and 550 inputs/outs per second (IOPS) for a 512-byte transfer. In comparison to traditional HDD, FiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 achieves performance that is approximately 20 percent higher than the SCSI hard drive, claims InnoDisk. Also, the drive at FiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 32Gbyte features a write/erase endurance of approximately eight years at 1TByte of write/erase cycles per day made possible by an exclusive controller chip design that features proprietary wear leveling and bad block management algorithms. The new drive can resist up to 5G (7~2000Hz) of operating random vibration and 1500G/0.5ms of operating shock. This, says InnoDisk, makes the FiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 provides rugged and reliable storage for applications within the enterprise server, military, aerospace, commercial aviation, and industrial markets.
