NVMe NANDrive Provides High Endurance, Fast Performance and Advanced Security


SANTA CLARA, CALIF. – MARCH 26, 2024  – Greenliant is now sampling its new NVMe NANDrive™ ball grid array (BGA) solid state drives (SSDs) to customers requiring reliable, high performance data storage for embedded systems used in high stress, extreme environments. Operating between -40 and +95 degrees Celsius, NVMe NANDrive SSDs support the PCIe Gen3x4 interface and are built in an industry standard M.2 1620 (16 x 20mm, 291-ball) package. See NVMe NANDrive information at https://bit.ly/NVMe-BGA-SSD.

"Building on our proven track record with PATA, SATA and eMMC NANDrive, Greenliant delivers another outstanding high reliability BGA SSD, now with the high speed PCIe NVMe interface, and features that meet the requirements of the most demanding applications," said Arthur Kroyan, vice president, business development and marketing, Greenliant."


The NVMe NANDrive EX Series using Greenliant EnduroSLC™ Technology offers superior data retention and ultra-high endurance of 75,000, 150,000 or 400,000 program-erase (P/E) cycles (up to 17,800 TeraBytes Written (TBW)). NVMe NANDrive EX Series SSDs are available in 20 GB, 40 GB, 80 GB and 160 GB capacities. For long-life applications, NVMe NANDrive EX Series SSDs are included in Greenliant’s Long-Term Availability (LTA) program (https://bit.ly/SSD-LTA-program).


The NVMe NANDrive PX Series using industrial 3-bit-per-cell (TLC) NAND provides high endurance of 5,000 P/E cycles (up to 6,700 TBW) and is ideal for price sensitive applications. NVMe NANDrive PX Series SSDs are available in 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB capacities.


Benefits of NVMe NANDrive SSDs include:

·         High Endurance: 75K, 150K, 400K P/E cycles (EX Series), 5K P/E cycles (PX Series)

·        Industrial Temperature: -40°C to +95°C (Tc = Case surface temperature)
