                >> amp inc Presentation (9.23MB Powerpoint download)
The amp inc 2.5" SSD is a flash based disk drive with SATA 2.6 interface. It provides fast read and write speeds, high reliability and its data protection make it an ideal storage solution for the server and mobile environment. It is built with Single Level Cell (SLC) or Multi Level Cell (MLC) NAND Flash which is cost effective and provides exceptional reliability and performance. Due to its non mechanical nature, it has higher shock resistance and lower access time than traditional rotating hard disk drives. Built-in ECC and EDC ensuring error-free transactions for the most demanding applications.

  • Wear Leveling
    This drive uses dynamic static and active (initiative) balanced wear leveling strategy, which will ensure that all blocks have nearly same wear level, and reduce the dependence of the write endurance on access pattern.
  • Endurance
    Write endurance: > 10 years @ 1 TBytes/day (32GB type)
    Read endurance: unlimited
  • ECC
    This drive also implements an enhanced ECC algorithm, which reduces the error rate and enforces the write endurance at same time.
  • Bad block management algorithm
    This drive has a certain number of reserved blocks. When user data block fails, a reserved block will replace the failed block. The replacement of bad block is transparent to user.
  • MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures)
    More than 2,000,000 hours (32GB typical) SLC
    More than 1,100,000 hours (32GB typical) MLC

    The drive receives DC power (+5V) through the interface connector.
    Input noise ripple is measured at the host system power supply across an equivalent 25-ohm resistive loading on the +5 volt line.
    Using 5-volt power, the drive is expected to operate with a maximum or 100 mV peak-to-peak square-wave injected noise at up to 10 MHz.
    Note: Equivalent resistance is calculated by dividing the nominal voltage by the typical RMS read/write current.
