Transcend Information, a manufacturer of industrial-grade products, has announced the industrial-grade SuperMLC JetFlash 740 USB flash drive. Positioned between its SLC and MLC NAND flash offerings, the company’s exclusive SuperMLC technology is designed to be a cost-effective solution that offers performance close to that of SLC NAND flash. Compliant with USB 3.1 Gen 1 specifications, the JetFlash 740 boasts excellent performance and endurance at affordable prices, making it suitable for demanding industrial grade applications.
Drawing on the strengths of both Single-Level Cell (SLC) and Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash, the company has developed SuperMLC technology by reprogramming the two bits per cell of MLC into one bit per cell, greatly boosting performance.
Using COB (Chip on Board) technology and housed in a high-quality metallic casing, the JetFlash 740 offers great vibration, dust, and splash resistance while remaining compact, suitable for stable, efficient data transfers in harsh industrial environments.
