Recently, SMART has announced that it launches its new N200 SATA series of flash products with four different form factors including mSATA, M.2 SATA, Slim SATA, and removable 2.5” SATA. Here, this post will show you SMART N200 SATA flash storage in detail.
SMART Modular Technologies, a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, is a global leader in specialty storage, memory, and hybrid solutions including flash memory cards, memory modules, and solid-state storage products. It has serviced the electronics industry for over 25 years.
Recently, this flash storage manufacturer has announced its introduction of the new N200 series of SATA flash products. In the following part, let’s go to see some features of these storage products.
SMART N200 SATA Products
With low power consumption and burst speed, the SMART N200 SATA flash storage has become an ideal economic choice for x86 server-storage appliances, NAS/SAN storage systems, telecom & networking routers and switches, distributed scale-out servers, printers, industrial control and so forth.
Four Models of SMART N200 Flash Storage
SMART new N200 family of SATA products is built with Triple Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND technology and there are four form factors, such as M.2 SATA (2240 and 2280), Slim SATA (MO-297), mSATA (MO-300A) and 2.5’’ SATA SSD.
To be specific, the M.2 SATA N200 SSD is designed to serve applications that require reliable internal storage yet demand a small footprint. The Slim SATA N200 is a commercial and industrial grade small form factors (SFF) embedded and solid state drive SATA module.
The mSATA MO-300A N200 can easily integrate into a host system without additional device drivers or any special BIOS modifications with its industry-standard SATA interface. As to the embedded computing applications, the 2.5" SATA N200 SSD brings the advantages of economical and industrial-grade non-volatile memory.
Features of SMART New N200 Family
For capacities, the SMART N200 SATA flash storage is available in capacities ranging from 32GB to 1TB, which depends on the specified form factor. And all can be used in industrial and commercial temperatures.
SMART new N200 family of flash storage offers you excellent read and write performance, can be suitable for applications that require lower drive capacity and use the drive for boot up code and OS (operating system) code storage.
Besides, for higher capacity drives, they are an excellent option for transaction-intensive applications, for example, x86 server-storage applications, single board computers for defense, gaming, industrial control applications and printers, telecommunications & networking routers and switches, and Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) computer blades.
Additionally, there are many features that the N200 series products own, such as advanced error detection, correction circuitry, as well as advanced static and dynamic wear leveling, providing superior data reliability, self-monitoring analysis, and reporting technology.
What’s more, the N200 also supports 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) with large maximum transfer size.
According to SMART Modular Technologies, SMART has rolled out a highly competitive family of SSD products, which can satisfy both the economic and performance needs in SATA products for many customers.
And the N200 SATA flash storage is regarded as the first product in what they see as a robust roadmap of new Flash products that their current and new customers are demanding.
SMART will show its line of N200 SATA products at Embedded World Exhibition and Conference 2018 on February 26-28 at the Nuremberg Convention Center in Germany.
Currently, there is no information on pricing or worldwide availability. For more information on SMART N200 SATA flash storage, you can visit the SMART website.
