SMART Modular Announces New N200 Family of SATA Flash Products

SMART Modular Technologies, a leader in specialty memory, storage and hybrid solutions including memory modules, Flash memory cards and other solid state storage products, today announced the introduction of its N200 line of SATA products. With burst speed and low power consumption, the N200 family is an ideal economic option for NAS/SAN storage systems, x86 server-storage appliances, distributed scale-out servers, telecom and networking routers and switches, industrial control, printers and more.

Built with Triple Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND technology, the new N200 line of SATA products, consisting of the mSATA (MO-300), the M.2 2242 and 2280, the Slim SATA (MO-297), and the removable 2.5" solid state drive form factors, delivers the advantages of economical, industrial-grade non-volatile memory to embedded computing applications. The N200 SATA products are offered in capacities ranging from 32GB to 1TB, depending on form factor, and all are available in industrial and commercial temperatures.
N200 products offer excellent burst read/write performance, suitable for applications that require lower drive capacity and utilize the drive for boot up code and operating system (OS) code storage. The higher capacity drives are an excellent choice for transaction intensive applications such as x86 server-storage appliances, telecommunications and networking routers and switches, Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) computer blades, single board computers for defense, gaming, industrial control applications and printers.

Victor Tsai, Flash Product Director at SMART Modular Technologies, said: "We believe SMART has come out with a highly competitive family of SSD products that can meet both the economic and performance needs in SATA products for our customers. The N200 family is the first product in what we see as a robust roadmap of new Flash products that our current and new customers are demanding."

Other N200 features include advanced static and dynamic wear leveling, advanced error detection and correction circuitry for superior data reliability, self-monitoring analysis and reporting technology. The N200 also supports 48bit LBA (logical block addressing) with a larger maximum transfer size.

I've been looking for an msata SSD in a capacity higher than 1 terabyte for a while, at an affordable price, so it is good that this company is actually working with that form factor, but this is still a little disappointing. I would kill for an affordable 2 terabyte msata or even an insanely priced 4 terabyte msata that I could save up for and eventually purchase.

Having 32GB\64GB products today like these is absolute insanity.
Companies even stopped making 128GB sizes anymore, having the same "packaging and logistics are already as expensive" effect.

it isn't, this small and ultra-cheap SSDs does not aim to the regular user market, but to enterprise automation machines, this type of machines needs ultra cheap and fast storage, and generally don't use regular windows...
