APRO launch Industrial 1.8 PATA (IDE) ZIF SLC SSD
The Optimal NAND flash storage for Embedded Computing

Taipei, Taiwan, February 05, 2010APRO, a leading provider in industrial NAND flash products, launch Solid State Disk with 1.8 ZIF PATA (IDE) interface featuring lower power consumption, no acoustic noise, no heat emission, an outstanding data access time and long-term data retention.

APRO Industrial 1.8 ZIF PATA (IDE) SSD is 100% compatible to 1.8 hard disk drives (HDD) and is optimal for industrial and enterprise applications, such as measurement units, GPS in Car-PC, mobile PC, POS terminals, measuring products, and other industrial products that require high endurance to environmental condition. APRO Industrial 1.8 ZIF PATA (IDE) is built either with Samsung Flash IC in Single Level Cell (SLC) or Multi Level Cell (MLC) technology. Combining the advance technical research & design from APRO and the advantage of flash IC, APRO is providing more and more product lines for industrial solutions.

APRO as an experienced industrial flash manufacturer, emphasize on fixed BOM (bill of material). The supply commitment ensures that components such as controller, flash IC and housing are offered coordinately with the same part number. Customers can freely choose the same solutions over a long period of time, and without concerning the different specification among the same part number and meet their exact application needs without compatibility concerns. The supply commitment greatly assist APRO win the confidence from customers worldwide.

The operating temperature of APRO Industrial SLC 1.8 ZIF PATA (IDE) supports optionally standard grade 0XC ~70XC and industrial grade -40XC ~85XC for diversity customer demand. APRO Industrial NAND flash products include wear-leveling algorithm to improve the life time of products. All products have a long life cycle of at least 3-5 years. Product longevity greatly reduces customers costly engineering efforts on new components and re-approval.
