On Thursday Super Talent said that it has updated its line of DuraDrive SSDs with Sudden Power Off Recovery (SPOR) tech. The company said this will ensure that data will not be lost even in unexpected power loss situations. The DuraDrive SSD line itself is built to withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, altitude, vibration, and shock.
"We are proud to offer a line of devices that has such reliability for all who use them. The DuraDrive line focuses on delivering in intense environments that call for mission critical performance," said Abraham Ma, CEO, Super Talent Technology.
Super Talent said the DuraDrive line is the ideal SSD solution for industrial, embedded, military and mission critical applications. There are three models within the line itself – AT2, ET2 and AT3 – sporting numerous capacities in both SLC and MLC formats. All models have a 2.5-inch form factor and connect via an SATA 2 or IDE/PATA interface, depending on the model.
"Thanks to an advanced controller and premium NAND Flash, the new DuraDrive delivers unprecedented vibration, shock and temperature tolerances, with impressive speeds," the company said. "Supporting access times of 0.1-ms, the new DuraDrive really performs and can reach speeds of 125 MB/sec sequential Read and 110 MB/sec sequential Write."
Thr company's DuraDrive AT3 model actually surpasses that, reaching speeds of up to 250 MB/sec sequential Read and 170 MB/sec sequential Write. This model is only offered in the MLC format with capacities ranging from 32 GB to 256 GB, and 128 MB of DRAM cache (the AT2 and ET2 models only have 64 MB).
"SSDs from this line have already been used in various military technologies and major car brands’ infotainment systems," the company said.

I think Intel offers the same idea with a large bank of capacitors to give the drive time to flush the buffer(write from cache to nand) in a power failure.Reply
Still good to see some other companies making SLC drives.
Why are those drives so slow? Put a SATA 3 controller in itReply
danwat1234Why are those drives so slow? Put a SATA 3 controller in itErr... isn't that kind of self-evident by the name? They're built for maximum reliability/durability. Military applications, automobiles, etc. They mention that they're "built to withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, altitude, vibration, and shock". The speed isn't as vital, especially given that ruggedized/hardened tech tends to be slow but very reliable. I think their few references to speed were basically to say that it is fast for this kind of drive, rather than to say that it is fast compared to the latest Samsung and Intel performance PC-centric SSDs.Reply
