Industrial M.2 SSD Products
M.2 (formerly known as NGFF, the Next Generation Form Factor) was first introduced in 2013 and intended to be a replacement for the mSATA standard as a computer storage medium. M.2 is a very flexible form factor, with a variety of physical sizes, interfaces and flash types to adapt to a wide range of storage applications.
Delkin Industrial M.2 is a caseless Solid State Drive solution with a SATA 3 interface. Delkin Industrial M.2 is built in MLC, and is available in multiple sizes – with 2242 and 2280 being the most popular.
The Delkin Industrial M.2 SSD delivers outstanding performance in a small, industry standard form factor and includes many features to improve flash management and SMART data retrieval. The design optimizes data retention and flash endurance. Sequential Read and Write speeds up to 540MB/s can be achieved and reliability up to 10 DWPD.
Industrial Grade M.2 or Rugged M.2 have higher endurance, higher temperature range, more longevity and are built using a controlled BOM and life cycle management plan. Depending on the requirements of the application, lower cost alternative flash technology can be a viable option, such as Industrial MLC M.2.
Different Physical Form Factors
An M.2 2280 is 22mm wide and 80mm long. Common lengths include 22mmx30mm (M.2 2230), 22mmx42mm (M.2 2242), 22mmx60mm (M.2 2260) and 22mmx110mm (M.2 22110). Typically host size constraints will dictate which Industrial M.2 is the best choice. Custom sizes are also available.
Industrial M.2 is a Futureproof Solution
SATA-based Industrial M.2 SSD’s utilize the AHCI drivers built into most operating systems today and originally designed around HDD’s and perhaps those new NAND designs coming in the future.
As the Industrial M.2 market continues to develop, Delkin is expanding its product offering to meet the needs of our customers. If you have any requirements for Industrial or Rugged M.2, please contact Delkin.
