Impressively fast and reliable: Swissbit X-500 Series Industrial SATA II SSD at Rutronik

Swissbit_X-500-aThe X 500 Series Industrial SATA II SSD (solid state drive) from Swissbit achieves a data rate on SATA II of up to 240MB/sec and an impressive 15,000 IOPS with 4k random accesses. It is available at distributor Rutronik.

To ensure the absolute reliability of the power fail protected X 500 Series, Swissbit combines sophisticated mechanisms and augments these with the S.M.A.R.T. (self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology) protocol, the lifetime monitoring tool or SDK and an efficient BCH-ECC (error correction code) unit. Added to this are such features as NCQ, TRIM, the ATA security set and in-field update. With these features, the X-500 Series is ideal for demanding applications, e.g. for Aerospace, Medical, Communications, Transportation, Automotive, Industrial Automation as well as in the governmental field.

The X-500 Series is available in storage densities from 16GB to 512GB as SLC (single level cell) SSD. It will also be available as optimized EM-MLC (Endurance Managed Multi Level Cell) version from summer 2013. EM-MLC achieves higher TBW (Tera Bytes Written) than conventional MLC SSDs. The X-500 SSDs afford a high level of shock and vibration resistance and can be used in a temperature range from -40°C to 85°C, versions for commercial applications have a temperature range from 0°C to 70°C. As for all Swissbit storage solutions, the long-term availability and a fixed BOM also apply for the X-500 Series.
