Biwin Introduces Half Slim H6201 Embedded SSD

BIWIN, a world-leading expert in the development and manufacture of flash and advanced NAND flash memory, has launched a new business-grade SSD that is perfect for the digital signage market, the half slim H6201. There are many different industrial applications for digital signage and the field is growing. To operate in public and outdoor environments, it is critical that the components are reliable, scalable, efficient and of low maintenance cost.

Flash memory is suitable for industrial grade products for a variety of reasons. By comparing with traditional HDD, SSDs are far more reliable because they have no moving parts. This makes them an ideal solution for deployments where heat, cold, dust, humidity and even shock and vibration are common. BIWIN SATA II Half-slim SSD H6201's MTBF of 2,000,000 hours is more than doubled comparing with mechanical hard drives, leading to lower maintenance costs. H6201 is extremely fast with the ability to handle high IO data throughput such as multiple data streams suitable for graphics and video in a very small package. SSDs are much more energy efficient. For example, H6201's maximum power consumption is 0.97W, which eliminates the dependency on system fans for cooling. The result is a quieter design with lower annual energy costs.

BiWin Introduces Industrial-grade Disk-on-Modules

BIWIN, a world-leading expert in the development and manufacture of flash and advanced NAND flash memory, has introduced two Industrial Grade Disk-On-Modules (DOMs) with SATA interface, D5211 and D5212. They are well suited for installation needing long endurance parts with high reliability under rugged conditions.

D5211 and D5212, available in capacities of up to 16GB, are SLC NAND based modules with a PE Cycle as high as 100,000 times. The products complies with strict, industrial grade controllers to ensure a stable operating performance under extended temperature ranges between -40°C to 85°C.

BIWIN Launches New Business-Grade SSD

BIWIN, a world-leading expert in the development and manufacture of flash memory, has launched a new business-grade SSD M5301, a full sized mSATA that runs at 99% lower power consumption under DEVSLP mode. This is designed to meet the ever more aggressive power/battery life requirements of today's Ultrabook and other compact mobile devices. The company will be presenting their latest products at the Computex trade show in Taiwan at Booth No. J0218.

DEVSLP enables hosts and devices to completely shut down the SATA interface, saving more power vs. the existing Partial and Slumber power states, which require the physical layer to be left powered. DEVSLP will help to enable a new generation of power friendly SATA-based mobile devices.

Biwin Announces Slim Profile 7 mm SATA III SSDs

Biwin, an industry leader in flash storage products, today announced a new slim-profile 7 mm casing option for their entire range of 2.5-inch client and enterprise class SATA III SSDs. The new slim-profile SSDs are 26% slimmer than most standard SATA SSDs which measure 9.5 mm thick, allowing for much higher density SSD deployments.

This 7 mm enclosure is available immediately on the company's Elite, Pro and Smart Series 2.5-inch SATA II and SATA III SSDs, as well as the company's new NuvoDrive NX and NuvoDrive PX 2.5-inch SATA III SSDs in capacities up to 480 GB. The new casing, like Biwin's existing 9.5 mm case, is constructed of black anodized aluminum to provide rugged protection of components in a featherweight design.

Biwin Launches 6 Gbps Mini SATA (mSATA) III SSDs

Biwin, an industry leader in flash storage products, today launched 6 Gbps Elite Series Mini SATA (mSATA) III SSDs in 25GB, 60 GB and 120 GB capacities that support sequential read and write speeds up to 500 MB/sec and 480 MB/sec respectively, and up to 50,000 4k random write IOPS. These Elite Series mSATA III SSDs, based on the SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor, rapidly accelerate storage performance in modern ultrabooks and small form factor industrial computers.

These drives feature state of the art AES encryption, wear leveling and ECC, and robust resistance to shock, vibration, dust and other environmental threats, making them an excellent choice for primary storage in industrial computing. Elite Series mSATA III SSDs will begin shipping in July to resellers and OEMs worldwide. The 120 GB model will retail for about $1 per Gigabyte.

Biwin Unveils PCIE SSD in Technology Demo at Computex 2012

Biwin, an industry leader in flash storage products, will showcase a working PCIE based solid state drive (SSD) in a technology demo system in their booth at the Computex convention this week in Taipei. Although this product will not be released for sale, it is the precursor to the company’s future line of PCIE-based enterprise class SSDs.

Today's SATA SSDs deliver sequential and random performance that is dramatically faster than HDDs. But enterprise applications demand ever greater performance, requiring storage solutions with far greater bandwidth than SATA can provide. PCI Express, or PCIE, offers three big advantages as an SSD interface:
- universal availability;
- massive bandwidth in a single volume;
- general freedom from compatibility issues.

Biwin Announces NuvoDrive PX Enterprise Class 2.5" SATA III SSD

Biwin, an industry leader in flash storage products, today announced the NuvoDrive PX enterprise class 2.5 inch SATA III 6 Gbps SSD that supports up to 85,000 random write IOPS and features data loss protection in the event of sudden power failure.

NuvoDrive PX is based on the LSI SandForce SF-2582 Flash Storage Processor, which packs the vanguard of enterprise reliability features such as global wear leveling, NCQ support, SMART commands support, and an ECC engine capable of correcting up to 55 bits per 512-byte sector.

Biwin Announces World's First 10-Channel SATA III SSDs
