TDK Corp.,  has developed its first single-chip solid-state drives that combine TDK GBDriver RS3 controller with NAND type flash memory in a single package. The eSSD-series drives offer relatively low capacities and while fully support Serial ATA-300 interface, are designed for various embedded applications.

The new TDK eSSD product line provides a storage capacity of 1GB to 4GB in a 17mm*17mm 208-ball BGA package. The internal flash memory is of the high-endurance single-level cell (SLC) type. Combined with the powerful error correction capability of the GBDriver RS3, the power interruption tolerance algorithm, data randomizer, and auto refresh function result in an SSD with high reliability and long life span, according to TDK. Data security of TDK eSSD has also been enhanced, with an automated encryption function using AES 128-bit encryption.

Compared to a existing configuration with separate flash memory and SSD controller, both mounting footprint and cost are significantly reduced, making it ideal for SSD device integration in to various equipment such as office devices, factory automation tools, banking terminals, medical and measuring instruments and so on.

An evaluation kit of the SSD device comprising an mSATA module and a mSATA-SATA converter board is also available. Sales of TDK eSSD are scheduled to begin in April.
