Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Exascend, a service-oriented and customisation-focused solid-state storage company specialising in high-performance, high-reliability, high-capacity, and fully customizable SATA and PCIe NVMe solid-state drive (SSD) solutions.

Exascend products are built on in-house-developed hardware and firmware platforms, and exclusively engineered with Marvell's state-of-the-art SSD controllers, targeting enterprise and industrial applications such as artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, edge storage, industrial automation, cinematography, telemetry, and mission-critical solutions.

Exascend's patented algorithm continuously monitors drive thermals, and regulates drive performance to improve SSD reliability, simultaneously enhancing sustained performance and quality of service (QoS) by a factor of ten.

The Exascend product line now available from Mouser includes the industrial-class PI3, SI3, SI2 series — as well as the enterprise-class PE3 series SSDs — across the M.2, U.2, 2.5-inch, and mSATA form factors.

The PI3 series SSDs are tough, ultra-high-capacity, high-speed PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSDs engineered exclusively for applications that demand maximum ruggedness.

They are available in capacities up to 8 TB, capable of sustained sequential read performance of 3,200 megabytes per second (MBps) and sequential write performance of 1,700 MBps. They are ideal for use in applications such as edge servers, transportation, high-performance telemetry, data logging storage, and mission-critical solutions.

The SI3 series and SI2 series SSDs are industrial-grade SATA 3 devices with 3D TLC and MLC NAND flash respectively, offering high speed and low latency with capacities up to 4 TB.

The PI3, SI3, and SI2 series are designed with innovative features and optimisations for industrial and rugged applications — such as wide temperature-support and protection against neutron single event upsets (NSEU) — and offer TCG Opal 2.0, using hardware encryption technology to secure data stored.

These advanced features combined with Exascend's storage engineering expertise qualifies Exascend's industrial-grade lineup as an excellent choice for applications that demand extreme ruggedness, unwavering reliability, and fortified data security with legacy support.

Mouser also offers Exascend's enterprise-grade PE3 series PCIe Gen3x4 SSDs, which feature a temperature range of 0ºC to 70ºC and capacities up to 7.68 TB.

These SSDs are capable of sequential read performance of 3,200 MBps and sequential write performance of 2,000 MBps.
