Adtron Announces 160GB Solid-state Drive

| Posted: Feb 26, 2007 11:30 pm

Adtron have just broken both boundaries in SSD storage technology with their new 160GB Solid-state Drive (capable of sustained read speeds of up to 70MB/sec).

 

This makes it the largest capacity and fastest solid-state hdd yet, available as both an IDE or SATA offering.

 

Both the DailyTech and NordicHardware have posted up comments on it.

 


Flash solid-state discs (SSDs) have generated a lot of interest from mobile users in the past few months. SanDisk has showed off its 32GB 1.8" SanDisk SSD Ultra ATA 5000 back in January, while Ritek plans on launching 16GB, 32GB and 64GB SSDs later this year. Adtron is upping the ante with a 160GB SSD which will be available in SATA and IDR versions.

 

"New geometries and chip densities in SLC NAND enable Adtron to significantly expand the capacities of its industry leading high performance products," said Alan Fitzgerald, CEO of Adtron. "In addition, the economics of these new flash drives combined with the increased capacities in standard form factors, greatly expand the applications among our historic flash disk customers in the industrial and defense markets, as well as addressing bandwidth intensive server and storage acceleration applications in a much broader emerging market previously the domain of HDD products."
