Transcend Information participated at the recent Embedded World, held at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre from March 14 to 16, 2017. In Hall 3A at booth 3A-211, visitors found a broad portfolio of embedded storage solutions, but also some new products. This year’s highlights included the company’s complete SuperMLC product series, which combines the performance advantages of SLC with the cost advantage of MLC flash memory, as well as an M.2 SSD with PCIe interface and 3D MLC NAND Flash.
The company’s product portfolio includes Solid State Drives, DRAM memory modules, SD cards, USB flash drives and DOMs in a variety of form factors and variants for use in embedded applications. To ensure enhanced durability and prolonged endurance, all products undergo reliability testing and are available with an extended temperature range. This to ensure stable operation even under demanding environmental conditions. Their long life and high compatibility and reliability ensure the company’s products are suitable for use in the following applications: POS / POI terminals, onboard entertainment systems, game machines, barcode scanners, medical technology, set-top boxes, monitoring systems, and others.
In order to better meet the needs of different industries, the company also offers a wide range of customised services. These range from solutions with optimised firmware, preloading of content and OEM / ODM services, as well as AES hardware encryption, conformal coating, underfilling, tailor-made stickers, logos and packaging. In addition, the company showed two other customisation options as live demos. Remote monitoring allows the user to monitor the S.M.A.R.T. values from SSDs of a client computer that is used somewhere in the world. This enables the system administrator to keep an eye on the health of the SSD and to take appropriate action if necessary. Hardware purge allows users to permanently erase their data on the SSD. The process is safer than software-based erasure methods and returns the SSD to its original state of manufacture.
