High capacity SSD embeds TLC NAND Flash memory
Toshiba Electronics Europe has introduced a client Solid State Drive (cSSD) with embedded TLC NAND flash memory. The SG5 series provides high performance and large storage capacities while maintaining a small form factor and reducing costs for consumers.
Toshiba’s first client SATA SSD to support 1,024GB capacity in an M.2 form factor, the series is designed for commercial notebook and desktop PCs, consumer upgrades and higher end notebook applications.
Available in 2.5” and M.2 form factors, the SG5 series features a SATA connection that supports 6.0Gb/s speeds and is available in capacities of 128, 256, 512 and 1,024GB. Utilising Toshiba’s proprietary Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC) error-correction technology, a highly efficient Error Correction Code (ECC), the SG5 series is optimised to protect customer data from corruption, improve reliability and provide a long life time.
Martin Larsson, Vice President, Storage Products Division, Toshiba Electronics Europe, commented: “We understand our customers’ needs for performance are constantly changing. The SG5 series gives our customers the flexibility of system configuration with a selection of various capacities and form factors. As the inventor of NAND flash technology, we leverage our NAND expertise to introduce state-of-the-art TLC NAND to optimise SSD performance in a small form factor, while giving our customers the ability to strengthen their data integrity with data protection features such as Toshiba’s QSBC and wipe technologies.”
Samples of the Toshiba SG5 series SSDs will be available in Q1 2016.
