    Solid state flash disk manufacturer Adtron Corporation, announces today the immediate availability of its most advanced generation of the Adtron Flashpak® Family of products including the IDE and Serial ATA (SATA) flash disk models, the I25FB and A25FB, respectively. The products in this announcement include the industry's highest capacity 2.5" SLC NAND flash disk drives at 160 GBytes, only available from Adtron.(Editors note: Picture shows the 96GB model, but the 160GB should look the same)[​IMG]

    "New geometries and chip densities in SLC NAND enable Adtron to significantly expand the capacities of its industry leading high performance products," stated Alan Fitzgerald, Adtron Chief Technology Officer. "In addition, the economics of these new flash drives combined with the increased capacities in standard form factors, greatly expand the applications among our historic flash disk customers in the industrial and defense markets, as well as addressing bandwidth intensive server and storage acceleration applications in a much broader emerging market previously the domain of HDD products".

    ArrayPro™ Performance Engine: This new generation of Flashpak flash disk incorporates advancements in the Adtron ArrayPro™ performance engine that provides parallel access and management of flash arrays within a single SSD. As Alan Fitzgerald describes, "ArrayPro separates an Adtron flash disk from the low-end single array SSDs and those that employ caching technologies that require battery back-up and whose performance are highly application dependent."The Adtron products deliver sustained read/write performance in the 70MB/sec range, delivering the solid state industry's best performance and far exceeding the capabilities of rotating media (HDDs).

    Erasure™ Data Security: Beyond its leading performance this "next generation" solid state flash disk drive family will address a broad range of Data Security requirements meeting the needs of commercial enterprises and addressing the most stringent Military and Intelligence Standards defined. The Adtron Erasure Data Security Suite includes access control features and offers unparalleled, high speed data elimination including clear and sanitize functions at the most trusted levels defined today.

    Shipments have begun in February 2007 with both commercial and industrial temperature models are available. For more information, contact Adtron Sales at 602-735-0300 or by e-mail at sales@adtron.com.

    That statement is untrue because SCSI 320 Ultra 15K rpm hard drives churn out 90-120MB/s sustained and 320MB/s burst...

    Maxtor, Seagate, Fujitsu (and some others) all make some outstanding 15K rpm monsters that beat this. However when it comes to average seek time any solid state would win out but when they describe sustained reads the rotational drives still beat them out.

    I can't wait to see these get faster than a 15K drive, I wouldn't mind a couple of these drives in my desktop right now really :).

    No, more like usb thumb drives.


    I'd love to see what a couple of these could do in a RAID0.

    Ok guys here it is.
    First off there are three versions of each the SATA (A25FB-20) and IDE (I25FB-20) drives from above. The -20's are 9.5mm high, -21's are 16mm high, and -22's are 22mm high. Which basically leaves the -20's for laptops.
    -20 = up to 32gb
    -21 = up to 96gb
    -22 = up to 160gb
    Now pricing (pricing is the same for IDE and SATA)
    32gb = $2500 (retail)
    120gb = $12029 (retail)
    160gb = $15006 (retail)

    YES that is fifteen thousand six dollars!
