Super Talent Introduces New SSDs for Harsh Environments

Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced the introduction of the DuraDrive AT3, an SSD for demanding industrial environments. Not every computing environment is a pleasant one and some of them are down right nasty. For such environments, we have developed the DuraDrive; a line of Solid State Disks designed to perform in environments well beyond the standard consumer specifications. Containing no moving parts, an SSD naturally performs well in high-shock and high-vibration environments. This makes SSD great candidates for such installations, but temperature has always been a limiting factor. While most drives were designed to function in environments from 0°C -> 70°C, the new DuraDrive has been specially designed to withstand operating temperatures from -40°C to +85°C.

Examples of applications that utilize the DuraDrive AT3's capabilities:
  • In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
  • Research Equipment for Harsh Environments
  • Manufacturing (industrial) Environments
"No matter how you plan to integrate this drive into your system, the DuraDrive is designed to be reliable under the toughest climates"., says Michael Shin, VP of Engineering. "And with the performance is excellent. This drive reaches speeds of 250MB/s Reads and 170MB/s Writes".

The DuraDrive AT3 features an industrial temperature controller which offers performance, reliability and features like low write amplification and 2-way wear-leveling, which increases the drive's longevity.

What else will they think of next? WHat good is all this if controller decides to go bust on it's own randomly even at room temperatures?

Or it's on a drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico... who's gonna pay for the cleanup.


This kind of equipment should all be factory hand tested and burned in.

Someone must be expecting bad weather and so encouraged at least this company to be partially prepared.

+1 for hand testing, put it in a oven at 140f / about 70c and run it for 20 days at 100% data transfer. If it passes do the same at Alaska outside temps in winter and then it should be good.

Umm doesn't seem more "durable" than your standard SSD, seems like a marketing gimmick, as unless it's significantly less vulnerable to static shock, than I really don't get it.

the 'industrial temperature controller' is the only non standard feature that i can see. they also dont explain what it does.
