SATA 6 Gb/s Industrial Grade Solid State Drives

The Adlink ASD Series of SSDs has an extended operating temperature range, and is able to withstand high levels of shock and vibration. It will be at the Embedded Systems Conference Chicago, June 6-8, 2011, in Rosemont, IL.


Adlink Technology, Inc will present the Adlink ASD Series of industrial grade solid state drives (SSDs) at the Embedded Systems Conference Chicago from June 6 to 8, 2011, in Rosemont, IL. Adlink ASD SSDs provide a SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA III) interface to match the data transfer capabilities of 2nd generation Intel Core processor-based platforms and have fast read/write speeds.

Adlink industrial grade SSDs deliver low latency with less than 1ms access time, power consumption as low as 2 watts, and high capacity. The Adlink ASD Series is available in 2.5-in., 1.8-in. and Jedec MO297 (Half-Slim) form factors and is designed for use in enterprise, industrial and embedded computing platforms in fields such as defense, telecom, transportation, industrial automation and medical. It supports a wide operating temperature range from -40 °C to 85 °C and is resistant to high levels of shock (1,500G/0.5msec) and vibration 3.08G (7-800Hz). SSDs have no spin-up time, seek time or rotational latency. To provide additional reliability, Adlink ASD Series SSDs implement wear-leveling and hardware error-correcting code (ECC), resulting in years of operation with minimal maintenance and a mean time between failures (MTBF) of up to 2 million hours.

“Our customers depend on Adlink to provide a total solution in a ruggedized format that is able to operate under the most demanding environmental conditions," stated Stephen Huang, Vice President of the Industrial Computing Product Segment of Adlink. "The Adlink industrial grade ASD SSD Series provides customers with the high data transfer rates of the SATA 6 Gb/s interface, high reliability and long product life in an industrial grade storage solution. With these advanced features and leading NAND flash controller technology, Adlink continues to provide customers with high quality solutions and reliable product support. Our new line of industrial grade SSDs meets the requirements of transportation, avionics, factory floor, and other rugged applications with extended temperature requirements.”

Built using high speed SLC/MLC NAND flash with Toggle-Mode and advanced controller technology, the Adlink ASD Series offers high speed performance of up to 470MB/sec sequential read and 385MB/sec sequential write speed (2.5-in. 128 GB SLC). With no moving parts, ASD SSDs are designed to deliver the durability required by portable devices that are frequently dropped or jostled. In addition to the 2.5-in. form factor, the Adlink ASD Series offers models in 1.8-in. form factor with Micro SATA connector and in Half-Slim form factor to provide design flexibility for customers seeking to create next generation ultra-thin rugged devices based on the standard SATA interface. For smoother integration of embedded platforms, the Adlink ASD Series is compatible with the latest Intel-based platforms.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
