Smart Adds SATA SSDs

FREMONT, Calif. -- SMART Modular Technologies (WWH), Inc. ("SMART" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SMOD), a leading independent manufacturer of memory modules, solid-state drives, embedded computing subsystems, and TFT-LCD display products, announced its new Xceed iSATA embedded solid-state drive (SSD) to attendees yesterday at its analyst day event at the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City. Featuring a four-channel 3Gb/s SATA-II module level interface which offers improved data transfer speed compared to other embedded storage solutions, the Xceed iSATA is the latest addition to its Xceed embedded Flash product line. This new RoHS-compliant drive is well suited for industrial-grade server, single board computers, storage cache/accelerators, networking, data communications, mobile and embedded computing, and medical, automotive, and industrial applications.

The new industrial-grade Xceed iSATA SSD is designed specifically for space-constrained embedded applications where traditional 1.8" and 2.5" hard disk drives (HDDs) and SSDs are too large. Measuring just 55.88mm x 30.48mm with a height of 11.38mm (non stacked NAND Flash components) or 12.01mm (stacked NAND Flash components), the iSATA SSD equates to an overall reduced footprint of 60% (1.8") and 75% (2.5"), all while offering significant advantages in power consumption and data throughput.

"The Xceed iSATA embedded SSD addresses the need for reliable operation in a small footprint," said Alan Gulachenski, Vice President of SMART's Advanced Memory Solutions group. "We believe that this product supports our customers' latest needs being driven by the evolution from legacy IDE/PATA interfaces to the SATA/SAS standard."
