Today, ATP announced the release of the all new Velocity SI-LITE, an industrial-grade SATA II SLC SSD that is designed for use in rugged environments where flash storage is needed. The SI-LITE SSD utilizes the latest generation SLC Flash with industrial grade performance, endurance and wide temperature ranges to meet the unique requirements of the industrial market space.




ATP says that the Velocity SI-LITE features data-integrity-calibrated firmware technologies that protect the data storage device against various power-down and intensive read/write scenarios, which would damage lower-grade solid state storage. The drive offers sequential read speed of up to 181 MB/s and sequential write of up to 133 MB/s, and features up to 2,700 4KB Random Read IOPS.


"Data integrity is the key for a Flash storage device to survive rough industrial environments. The cutting-edge SI-Lite firmware has taken into account multiple power outage conditions during different read/write timing and the product has passed several thousands of power cycles during the strict product qualification process. The "AutoRefresh" feature provides automatic ECC checks before any uncorrectable failure occurs during read operations. AutoRefresh also moves data to healthy blocks before any failures occur, improving long-term data integrity. The high density SI-Lite has more than twenty times program/erase life cycles over other MLC Flash based industrial SSDs on the market and with more than 1500TB of total bytes written," the company said in a release.
